A video about Samasource a social enterprise that gives work to impoverished people around the world, founded in 2008 by Leila Chirayath Janah to bring dignified, computer-based work opportunities to people living in poverty around the world. The organization's mission is based on the belief that poverty can be alleviated by tapping into the brainpower of the poor and empowering them as producers of goods and services in the global economy. Samasource secures contracts from enterprise customers to provide data entry, digitization, content moderation, and other outsourcing services. The work is divided into smaller tasks called "microwork" which are completed by Samasource's distributed workforce. This workforce comes from Service Partners in 6 different countries including Haiti, India, Kenya, Pakistan, South Africa, and Uganda.

Samasource is a registered 501(c) non-profit headquartered in San Francisco, California.
