Our ultimate goal: have a significant impact on a maximum number of people

Our goal for the next 3 years is to build up strong foundations to effectively grow our impact thereby allowing thousands of domestic workers to strive for better outcomes and break the cycle of poverty for them and their families. We want to grow from 2,500 new beneficiaries a year in 2020 to 10,000 in 2023 to prove the model and be able to replicate our success. To date, we have welcomed participants from Hong Kong, Singapore, and by word of mouth we have reached domestic workers in the Middle East. Our solution is scalable for the region and has the potential to be tailored for other disadvantaged groups who struggle with managing their finances and their mental well-being.

Our dream is to make our supportive community and free money management and personal growth program available to as many migrant domestic workers and underprivileged people as possible.Thanks to online education tools, we are a very lean organisation and all our resources are focused on generating long-term change.- With USD $5, you give access to one domestic worker to our supportive online community where she can get free educational resources and positive support from her peers.- With USD $20, you give one domestic worker access to our supportive online community AND our “Prepare for the Future” online program. It consists of a 3-week money management and personal growth online course (15 hours) followed by a 6-month follow-up program (12 hours).

A data-driven approach

We measure what we do to continuously improve and increase our impact. As a social initiative, our return on investment is impact. We know that random decisions produce random results. Consequently, we build a robust impact measurement system allowing our decisions to be evidence-based. We believe monitoring and evaluation is inherent to operations management and should be designed in a way that allows constant reflection, learning and improvement.

How Uplifters is different from others organisations that already offer tailor-made courses for domestic workers?

We use new technologies to make our courses truly accessible.We don’t teach. We enable individuals and communities to self-coach themselves.We combine coaching techniques with peer support to help domestic workers make change happen in their lives. We do more than just financial education. We believe it takes more than good money management habits to lift people out of poverty and help create the lives they want for themselves. We make mental well-being education accessible for those who need it the most. We help participants build a support network.We want to make migration successful both for departure and host countries.Our model has the potential to impact at scale.

What We Do

We envision a world where underprivileged communities are empowered to build the lives they want for themselves. We believe that empowerment, education and community-based projects have the power to eradicate poverty and transform lives. Our mission is to enable migrant domestic workers in South-East Asia to transform their lives by unleashing the combined power of online education and community support – and as such make migration successful.

Our Culture

We are a young team and more than specific skills, we look for people sharing our values and mindset. Our values are enablement, positivity and warmth. Enablement is the core of all we do. We strive to give a fulfilling experience to all our members regardless of their background and create a global movement of Uplifters, people willing to uplift others’ lives but also to learn and grow personally. We concentrate on the positive and promote a can-do attitude without denying the difficulties of the situations our members face. We don’t victimise our members and work to shift the narratives around underprivileged communities. We bring people together. We give our members a sense of belonging, a family far from home and the assurance that they matter. In a nutshell, we care.
