Some of our initiatives are social businesses that generate revenue. Others are pioneering solutions and technologies that help workers and employers alike.


Since our set-up in 2014, we’ve:

        Placed 6000 workers into jobs safely via our nonprofit recruitment agency, Fair Employment Agency that never charges fees to workers, and helped drive down fees charged to workers from by 65% in the six years of operations in Hong Kong so far.

        Trained 750+ first-time migrant workers with life skills needed for successful migration at our nonprofit center, Fair Training Center in Manila, Philippines.

        Educated thousands of members of the public on fair hiring and management of migrant domestic workers with our Employer Education and Fair Hiring Pledge initiatives.


We are now ready to scale our solutions in Hong Kong, the Philippines and beyond, and we are looking for a talented and ambitious change-maker to join our growing team.
