Building Community — From Web3 Gaming to IRL Events
Avocado DAO is founded on the strength of the community, we not only operate online in the web3 space but connect with our scholars to support a wider network of people and host In Real Life (IRL) events to support the communities of our members and beyond. Avocado’s mission is to educate and empower people by facilitating entry to blockchain gaming, and onboarding web2 users into web3 by introducing Avocado to new communities who can benefit from GameFi.
Avocado and its scholars have rallied together to enrich, educate, and empower people directly and indirectly through web3 gaming. From supporting survivors of the devastating Typhoon Odette in the Philippines to organizing crypto workshops and other community relief events in real-life.
The proposal — Bringing an idea to life
This event began with a proposal from one of the Avocadian guild leaders. A proposal with a dual goal to leverage the power of Avocado as a guild, bringing the Indonesian scholars together for a two-day community event. This combined a day of outreach work to support the local people by offering some relief to the fishermen of Kampung Nelayan, Pangandaran, a small fishing village in West Java, Indonesia, who were severely affected by the restrictions of Covid-19.
The event — Avocadians in action
The event took place over a weekend in December 2021. The community support event was held on Saturday — to meet the fishing community and hand out food packages which included 150 bags of food for the fishermen and their families. This outreach work helped the scholars to understand their hardships and see how they can support their community. This was followed by a day of team-building activities and GameFi discussions for the Avocadians. It was a huge success for both the scholars and the fishermen! Here’s how the day unfolded:
The outcome — Benefits for all
In addition to the core aim to provide relief, which they found extremely rewarding, it empowered the scholars to take part in organizing the event, the food packages, and collaborating towards a shared goal. This gave the participants a sense of achievement, building confidence to take on new challenges and experiences. Many of our members find that the guild has helped them to build interpersonal skills as well as many other skills such as presentation, event organization, and communication. Through the fun of gaming, with Avocado’s backing, they can develop their skills and become empowered through the community and their individual growth.
Final thoughts — Positively impacting lives through GameFi
The scholars worked together and found that they have more than a common love of games, but also share compassion for each other and those around them. The team grew closer as a result of the event, creating a stronger gaming team and a solid and close-knit community with shared experiences both in the metaverse as well as in real life. The fishermen benefitted from the scholars’ gaming within the guild as well as their hard work to support and improve the lives of the community. These are at the core of Avocado’s values and are the qualities that bind the strong community we have today.
Such gatherings also help to dispel misconceptions around blockchain and gaming by translating the intangibility of web3 into real-life positive impact.
One of the scholars shared their experience of the trip:
In my opinion, events from Avocado DAO are unique, such as charity and gathering events. The existence of events like this can strengthen the bonds of friendship between Avocado members in Indonesia. Moreover, one of the programs held by Avocado, namely the charity event in Pangandaran, my beloved village, is very beneficial to local fishermen who have been affected by the global COVID-19 pandemic. Hopefully, in the future Avocado DAO will continue to carry out all its core pillars and always be compact and more solid.
As a result of the success and positive response to these types of outreach events, we are now organizing the next Indonesian community event on the 17th August. This time, Avocado DAO will be present at the local celebration of Indonesia’s Independence Day in Tajur Halang, Bogor, West Java.
We are working alongside the local government to contribute food and goodies to support the event, and Avocado will host fun activities facilitated by our scholars. This will help us create a play2educate environment to introduce web3 gaming along with providing scholarship opportunities that allow new scholars to play2empower their lives. These events enable us to share industry information with local people who can benefit and play2enrich themselves and their families from the opportunities that Avocado can offer.
