So that’s what we’ve done.
As we’ve grown, we’ve hired many highly skilled people from countries like Uganda, Kenya, and Nicaragua, with a primary focus on women. We invest dozens of hours in training each new hire in how to build websites, do graphic design, manage projects, and excel at other marketable digital skills.
The income they earn has been a game-changer for many, allowing some to pay college tuition for family members, move into a new apartment, or work from home so they can take care of a newborn. It’s also allowed them to build a CV with international work experience, with some of our former web developers now working directly with larger companies from the US and Europe.
