We solve issues of social polarization and poverty
by delivering Wallets for every unbanked person.
A former Cameroonian football player, who played for some of the top club teams in the world, including FC Barcelona, FC Internazionale Milano, and Chelsea FC. He is regarded as one of the greatest African players of all time – winning the African Player of the Year four (4) times (2003, 2004, 2005, 2010) throughout his legendary career and holds the record for it. He is also the alltime leading scorer for the Cameroon national team. (as of October 1, 2021)
My name is Samuel Eto'o.
There are many people in the world who are unable to open a bank account.I am from Cameroon, Africa, and there are many people in Africa who are unable to maintain an independent life due to political instability and poor educational systems.
I have continued to play soccer because I believe that it has the ability to help unite people.
With hard work, I was able to open new doors for my future through soccer.
The world is now in a fragile situation where relations between countries and individuals are divided, partly due to the new corona.
Despite this situation, there are many children in Africa who dream of a better future.
However, in a divided society, inequality is widespread, and each person's life is treated lightly.
These children and their families do not have bank accounts, pocket money or savings, and the children do not have time or room to devote to their studies or extracurricular activities, such as sports.
As I was searching for ways to help with this sad reality, I came across the Fruits SDGs Station – a service that looks to provide a Fruits e-wallet to the less fortunate people.
Furthermore, their service is to build a transaction network where people can directly support children and families who do not have access to bank accounts, which I think is a great idea & challenge.
I'm sure that you, too, will help your friends and the people around you when they are in trouble.
Nowadays, the world is connected through the Internet, making it possible to interact with people beyond race and nationality.
I believe that this new challenge of Fruits SDGs Station will lead to people around the world joining hands and helping each other.
「Equality around the World」
Whether you are in a state of weakness or a strong individual, no human being can live alone.
Through this activity, you too can help children around the world to solve their problems and issues and realize a more peaceful and equal future.
May the world be filled with more smiles.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership.
FRUIT’s Wallet helps achieve the 17 SDGs below:
There are a variety of problems for each community. For example, communities in Africa have different combinations of problems such as hunger, lack of clean water, diseases, viruses, insufficient medical system, pollution, and insufficient education system. So we can’t just bring one simple solution. Every single community needs a unique solution for their case of problem.
To provide unique support for each community, we are building FRUITS SDGs Stations, which are bases to support children and their families who are out of reach of support activity. We directly identify what problems or troubles are going on in the community and we spread the situation to the world to get support and also, our volunteers educate local children to let them learn how to use our Wallet, how to get allowance from it, and how to make a living in the future.
They don’t even have the opportunity to get
an allowance, education, food for the day, or school education.
In order to solve these serious problems, such as poverty inequality,
these children need support from those who are in a more stable position.
They have no financial service to save money for their future. That makes it harder for them to have a sustainable life quality.
Only a few children are able to pay for sufficient education.
It’s rare to have their own money before they start to work. That means they have no allowance for themselves.
There are no garbage disposal sites around where they live, so they’re forced to live in an unclean environment. They don’t even have bathrooms.
Many children are suffering from continuous lack of food and hunger which creates a very tough environment for children to live in.
They face health threats such as mosquitoes carrying malaria or other infectious diseases and aren’t able to get sufficient medical treatment.
Mobile payment allowed 1 million people to get away from poverty.
Mobile payment users saved three times more than people who didn’t use mobile payment.
Providing FRUITS Wallets could potentially help 1.1 billion people.
Poor people with smartphones
Normal bank accounts
Donation receivers, receivers will install FRUITS Wallet app to their mobile phone and open a Wallet account. We will then send donations directly to the Wallet by using virtual currencies.
After they register a Wallet account, they can receive donations through the Wallet. They will be able to exchange the virtual currency with their country’s currency.
Wallets are managed like bank accounts and they are as secure as normal banks. Receivers can both organize financial assets and save money.
By increasing savings from the donations through the Wallet, they can find a way of economic independence, to get out of poverty.
Use our original virtual currency to donate. The virtual currency allows you to send donations directly to people in need. In addition, your donations will be sent faster by using virtual currency than former ways of donation.
FRUITS is an alternative to a bank account. That means users don’t need to have bank accounts to receive donations. By using our Wallet, 1.1 billion people (who have smartphones but no bank accounts) can have a way to make savings and manage their financial assets.
By using our virtual currency for donations, you don’t have to leave your donations to charitable institutions that may be unclear of where the donation is sent to. It should make it easier for you to make donations because you can be sure if your donations were sent to the receiver or not.
There is no transaction fee when you use FRUITS to donate. That means 100% of your donation reaches people who you want to help. It also makes it easier to make a small amount of donation because there aren’t any transaction fees.
We build bases at each area for specific support activity because each area has its own problems or troubles. Our most unique point is our Wallet which challenges us to offer fundamental solutions for problems caused by insufficient financial service and support not only by lack of food or medical system. This FRUITS Wallet allows us to donate directly without charitable institutions. We are here to bring equality for everyone who lives on the earth.
