[Proposal] Celo Tribe (web3 social club for universities)

My introduction here

Hello Community.

West Africa where I come from is endowed with a lot of brilliant minds and the youth generation is fast evolving.
This lead me to come up with the ‘Tribe’ movement which is “a web3 social club dedicated to inspiring, educating, and exposing youths in higher institutions to the vast opportunities in Web3 building a fully functional community of young minds in Web3.”

A few months back we held the first-ever Tribe event and we planted the first club cell which was tagged “Tribe LASUTH". Currently, we have about 20 active members in the club all discussing web3 and possible infusion into their field of study which happens to be medicine. check out this blog post on medium.

Current Tribal leaders (LASUTH):

Name: Adekunle Abdulganiu
School: Lagos state university college of medicine (LASUCOM) Department: Pharmacology
Year: 2nd

Name: Ayantunji Roseline
School: Lagos State University College of Medicine (LASUCOM)
Department: Pharmacology
Year: 2nd year

Name: Adebusoye Abiodun
School: Lagos State university college of medicine (LASUCOM). Department: Pharmacology
Year: 2nd year

Our goal is to engage and directly chart the course of these potential young people to a future in web3 and Celo.

Social clubs in higher institutions or universities are not entirely a new thing and some clubs go as far back as the 90s.
Below are a few schools with lists of registered clubs in their schools:

Each school consists of various departments covering many studies in sciences, education, law, engineering, medicine, and so on. we believe these fields have a role to play in web3 and we want to expose them to Celo.

In achieving this, we have decided to pioneer this social club community titled: Celo Tribe which we look to establish in universities across West Africa focused on empowering these youths with the right information to harness their skills and groom them to their fullest potential exposing them to Celo and the possibilities of building in Celo.

Our initial target region is Nigeria and, her total number of universities was estimated at over 170 schools to date with Lagos State estimated to have over 11 universities inclusive of privately-owned schools.

We look to establish Celo Tribe in these schools over the next 5 months duration.

Tribe monthly curriculum Schedule
Seminars:- Seminars will be hosted Bi-monthly where web3 facilitators/enthusiasts from around Africa will be invited to discuss with the students.
School activities:- Bi-weekly meetings will hold as they discuss weekly topics in the course outline presented to the tribal leaders in each school.
Competitions:- These will hold monthly or Bi-monthly depending on their school syllabus and school activities.
Events:- These will be organized monthly by students with catchy themes each month.
Reports:- Reports will be presented by school tribal leaders on a monthly bases for follow-ups and to see better approaches and implementations.

Celo Tribe Social
We want to take this a huge step further by creating social channels which students can follow and get up-to-date information on tribe activities done in other schools to inspire them about what they could do in their Tribe community. We will be setting up social pages on these platforms:
Discord (Tribe Channel)
Also frequent blog posts on blaqk stereo as well as medium will be implemented


  • Establishment of Celo Tribe clubs in 23 universities.
  • completion of at least 15 events and seminars in 5 months duration.
  • opening of fully operational Celo Tribe social pages.

Hi @hawwal. This sounds really great. Very cool proposal for the Celo Tribe.Everyday, Iam amazed by how we strive to decentralize and localize the Celo’s true mission.We are making progress indeed.
However, from a very close observation I can see that the mission of the tribe is closely aligned to the a focus of the CELO AFRICAN REGIONAL DAO where it will strive to bring forth students aspiring to be developers,designers and entrepreneurs.The goal here is to have these students eventually forming independent Blockhain clubs to participate in the hacking of Celo Blockchain.
Now with this in the air,Wouldn’t it be counter-productive to have the Tribe and the DAO working independently to achieve the same thing?

Hi, @rony23-byte Thanks for taking out time to read and give your impressive feedback on this proposal. I Have read the Celo African Regional Dao proposal which was quite interesting with its focus mostly on Hackathons. It would be awesome if we could collaborate in seeing the Celo Tribe movement for Africa to fruition. However, I believe our goals differ slightly as Celo tribe isn’t focused on hackathons even though each school will have frequent “events and seminars”, Our focus is majorly on providing information, educating, learning, and sharing charting the course of these potential young people to a future in web3 and Celo. An interschool hackathon can definitely be fixed in which would participants from each school will be welcomed to showcase their innovations. I believe for this particular sort of event, we could then reach out to the Celo African Regional Dao to support.
Secondly, from the last community call meeting from what I heard, I don’t know if the Celo African Regional Dao has been approved to proceed with funding but I think the team would know better as regards this.
Thirdly Celo tribe is a movement I envision going even far beyond the borders of Africa, I believe there can be Celo tribes in European higher learning institutions, Asian and so on… The dream is big and there is much much work to be done.
Thank you :slight_smile:
