Almentor, the leading Arab self-learning platform, is preparing to launch several online awareness and educational initiatives, in partnership with Arab and international companies and associations, culminating its societal role and responsibility of promoting the culture of learning as a right for all.

Almentor platform had previously collaborated with the Egyptian Ministry of Social Solidarity to launch the online platform of the Mawada initiative, through which a large team of leading experts and public figures in Egypt offer a free training course aimed at raising the awareness of young people about to be married and providing them with the skills and knowledge needed to build successful households.

Almentor’s cooperation with Etisalat Misr for sustainable development and many other non-governmental and governmental institutions also seeks to support the right of the deaf and hard of hearing in Egypt through the launch of an educational initiative that offers words filmed in sign language in various fields. The initiative also provided 10,000 free coupons to the deaf and hard of hearing, enabling them to receive free sign language training.

In a new initiative to kickstart the year, Almentor is collaborating with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) to launch the UNFPA project. Through its online platform, the project offers a training program to develop and train young people who would be qualified to raise awareness on reproductive health and other topics throughout all governorates of Egypt.

Dr. Ihab Fikri, founder and CEO of Almentor, is proud of the platform’s active role and contribution to these leading initiatives that will make a difference in the lives of many members of society. It is worth mentioning that Almentor owns a digital library full of training courses, books, and words filmed in sign language, making it one of the largest educational platforms in the Arab region and the whole world.

Bitcoin as a censorship-free money has been used by outlaws of all sorts, but this time the outlaw is a young scientist from Kazakhstan breaking through the paywalls of academic journals. Alexandra Elbakyan, a 31-year-old freelance coder, neurobiologist and phylologist, is running a database of over 80 million articles from academic journals that are normally available only through subscriptions. What started out of frustration when she was a graduate student became a free research service funded only through donations. For most people in the world, bitcoin is the only way to support Elbakyan’s work. The website, called Sci-Hub, has been sued by two science publishing houses and reportedly investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice for possible espionage on behalf of Russian intelligence. (Elbakyan said she never got contacted by the U.S. authorities about it.) This effectively cut Elbakyan off the mainstream financial services in the West. NEVERMORE? “The law and morality don’t always match up, and they certainly don’t in this case,” says an admirer of Sci-Hub, whose logo is depicted above. Source: Sci-Hub Elbakyan told CoinDesk the website sees about 600,000 visits each day. Even for those researchers who have access to subscriptions via universities, Sci-Hub turns out to be the most convenient option to get content for their research, she said. But her struggles underscore one of the fundamental value propositions of cryptocurrency: When people can’t use the mainstream payment ralis, crypto offers an alternative. It’s hardly a bellwether of a broad adoption coming, but it is “a good example of bitcoin as a niche payments rail,” economist John Paul Koning told CoinDesk. “For most purposes, people prefer to use regular fiat payments because they are easy,” said Koning, a CoinDesk columnist. “But when they get locked out, either because they are engaging in illegal activities or legal ones that are deemed socially unacceptable, bitcoin becomes an option. People who have been locked out of these conventional systems are slowly discovering that bitcoin can serve them.” See also: Tearing Down Monuments Isn’t Censorship – It’s Speech
