Watch an interview one of our colleagues, Leila Janah, gave to Fortune. Leila is founder of what she describes as one of Silicon Valley’s few “intentionally” non-profit companies. The organization she founded, Sama, is a tech platform that connects impoverished people with large corporations like Google, LinkedIn, and Microsoft to complete digital projects.
In 2010, our Chief Management Officer, Jacky Poteau, worked with Leila and Samasource in Mirebalais to give jobs to over 60 young people over a six-month period! We intend to use the lessons and experiences from that brief stint and our current connections to bring more jobs to the area and the country in the future!
