pawaPass is on an ambitious mission : To provide Africans with a useful, universally accepted, digital identity.
There’s a lot of talk about financial inclusion, however, for Africans to be able to meaningfully participate in global marketplaces for jobs, trade, travel, and more, we believe market inclusion is key.
What good is a verified passport if you can’t get a visa to go anywhere?
That’s why we are creating the building blocks for a more nuanced approach to digital identity. One that Africans can build up over time, and can include a number of verified data points, making it easier to have access to any desired product, service, or opportunity.
