Samasource is a great non-profit organization that deals with eradicating poverty through computer based work.

Samasource derives its name from the Sanskrit word sama, which means equal, and was founded in 2008. The company’s board and management team includes experts in the fields of distributed work, economic development, and outsourcing.

Samasource brings dignified, computer-based work to women, youth, and refugees living in poverty.

The organization has a fascinating concept, and the lady spearheading the organization believes poverty can be eliminated in the world. The model of "Raising underachieving societies" is well illustrated by Samasource.

Leila Janah strives to eradicate poverty and provide opportunities to underachieving societies.

In the speech above she says that the greatest ethical battle in our time is not poverty but a fundamental disparity in access to opportunity.

This is so true because people in underachieving societies like Africa, have so much potential to do great things, they just need the right tools to harness that potential. Samasource is providing those tools.
