The Samasource Mission

Founded in 2008 by CEO Leila Janah their mission is simple - they believe that giving meaningful work is the best solution to reversing global poverty and it seems to be working on a massive scale.

By providing digital skills training individuals can gain access to internet based work that pays a living wage and through their #givework model Samasource have so far lifted over 50,000 people out of poverty.

Working with some of the most innovative global companies worldwide they are creating access to well paid, sustainable work, for people who would not normally be able to gain access to these kinds of careers. From Martha's story you can see the potential impact this has - just take oneĀ  moment to imagine yourself in that situation and then imagine the difference Samasource can go on to make to thousands, if not millions, of others like her.

You know we are huge champions of tech for good and the companies we showcase are all doing amazing work - just imagine if every company around the globe also decided to use their tech to create meaningful work and social impact on this scale. Sounds like a place we would like to be.


"We still live in a world where 4 billion people live on less than $4 a day. Can you imagine life on that kind of paycheck? Forget 3 meals, you would be lucky to afford one and your life would last on average 25 years less than it would if you lived in a rich country"
