About us

We are on a mission to break the cycle of poverty, empower underprivileged communities with online education and peer support and make societies more inclusive.

We concentrate at the moment on migrant domestic workers. Despite working years abroad, most migrant domestic workers don’t lift themselves out of poverty. Our ambition is to provide a solution at scale to this regional economic and social issue.

We help migrant domestic workers build better lives for themselves and make their sacrifices working abroad far from home worth it. We do so by improving their life skills and their vocational skills. We also want to support local employers build healthy win-win work relationships with their domestic workers.
