Want to help end poverty? Stop giving aid and give work. This is the mission of Samasource – a company that provides high quality service to customers all over the world with a catch. The workers are refugees and women from poverty stricken countries.

Samasource, which means, “equal”, delivers data services and virtual assistance from 23 digital work centers in nine countries. The workers are highly motivated and are able to complete projects on a 24/7 basis. Clients range from startups to big companies like Google, LinkedIn, ETS, and even the US State Department.

Termed ‘microwork’, this is a great way to fight poverty by enabling capable, marginalized people to complete digital tasks in some of the world’s poorest places. Their model provides direct income to thousands of people at a fraction of the cost of traditional aid programs and equips them with skills to succeed in the new economy. Yes, I am a big fan indeed. Thank you Samasource.
