Samasource is an innovative social business that connects women and youth living in poverty to dignified work via the Internet.
Our proprietary technology platform, the SamaHub, breaks down digital work from large companies into small tasks, or microwork, that can be completed by women and youth with basic English skills and a few weeks of training at our partner centers. Our clients include large technology and data companies, including Google, LinkedIn and Microsoft. This work enables people living in poverty to earn a living wage in the formal sector, build confidence, gain skills in the new economy and inject much-needed capital into their communities.
