NGOs, local governments, and businesses can boost communities with Open Town's NFT crowdfunding. Here NFTs are more than digital art, they’re a way of community participation, as more than token ownership, after purchasing a token you’ll receive special access to participating in the community.
The Open Town team will support NGOs in the process of building the website, creating and selling the NFTs.
Open Town’s community team will support building a community online to ensure a more sustainable project management.
NGO Case Studies
Savanna Kidz Project, Karungu Village, Uganda
During the last 20 years, the people of the Karungu village had no water storage tanks, so children had to walk around 12 km daily along a dangerous mountain route to get water from the local river. However, with the recent construction of a rainwater storage tank, the villagers now have access to drinking water.
This initiative was made possible by the collective vote of residents and NFT holders.
The previous classrooms were temporary structures that lacked windows, doors, and even floors. Thanks to the earnings from the Savanna Kidz NFT, a brand new and comfortable classroom was built to give a better learning experience to children.
Municipal Case Studies
Yokoze, Chichibu, Saitama, Japan
Starting in January 2023, Yokoze Town offered 2 hours and 7-day Web3 course in Jan 2023, attended by students, residents, and NFT holders who created digital art and turned it into NFTs.
Elementary and junior high school students, as well as NFT holders from Yokoze Town, collaborated to create a variety of NFT artworks. During the NFT presentation, almost all of the participants expressed their desire to continue creating more NFTs in the future.
To create community cohesion, the Open Town team will provide support in determining the number of digital art pieces to be issued and their price, starting with a design that resonates with the community.

Prior to the launch of the sale, the NGO/municipality will create a digital art sales page, and the Open Town team will develop the page using the project content provided by the NGO/municipality.
To foster a sense of community, we will establish common goals and vision and create online communities on Twitter and Discord. Our community team will support you in building and growing your online presence.
By using the proceeds from NFT sales, there are various ways you can improve your community, such as building water tanks, constructing a new elementary school, and offering Web3 courses. Community members are encouraged to share their ideas and skills for future projects.
