Our Mission

Our mission is to enable migrant domestic workers in South-
East Asia and the Middle East to make their migration successful by unleashing the combined power of online education and community support through innovative and scalable solutions.

Our vision

We envision a world where every person - regardless of their background or circumstance - can shape and uplift their lives.

Our values

We EmPoWer


Enablement is the core of all we do. We strive to give a fulfilling experience to all our participants regardless of their background and create a global movement of Uplifters, people willing to uplift others’ lives but also to learn and grow personally.


We concentrate on the positive and promote a can-do attitude without denying the difficulties of the situations our participants face. We don’t victimise our participants and work to shift the narratives around underprivileged communities.


We bring people together. We give our participants a sense of belonging, a family far from home and the assurance that they matter. In a nutshell, we care.

Our core principles


To guarantee the impact and the scalability of our programmes, our community is at the centre of all we do. Our staff’s role is to give our beneficiaries the tools and educational content to support their peers. The beneficiaries can volunteer to take an active role in the community and participate in programme design, outreach and delivery.

Evidence based

As a social initiative, our return on investment is our impact. We have a robust impact measurement system to continuously improve our work and ensure evidence-based decisions.


Since our work is technologically driven, we develop cost-efficient programmes with small variable costs and the potential to scale. Our goal is for our work to have the potential to affect the lives of the maximum number of people – and as such, combine depth and breadth.


The challenges faced by migrant domestic workers are complex. We collaborate with partners to multiply our impact. We don’t want to reinvent the wheel but offer innovative solutions to address existing gaps.

Transparency & Integrity

Transparency is key in our interactions with our beneficiaries, our partners and our team. We strive to communicate in simple terms so everyone can understand what we do. We work independently from financial institutions and do not sell any financial products as part of our programmes.
