Samasource

Samasource doesn’t give poor people charity, it gives them work.

Samasource doesn’t give poor people charity, it gives them work. Since 2008, the platform mediates jobs that can be performed on a computer to disadvantaged people. After a client, e.g. a company, has uploaded a project, the Samasource team breaks it down into individual tasks that are then distributed to workers around the world. The work, be it research, data entriy or application testing, etc, undergoes a quality check and is then returned to the client. It’s a worthwhile idea that strives to live up to its name: Sama means “equality” in Sanskrit.
