    Summary: 
    "Leila Janah, a dynamic social entrepreneur, shares the story of how she founded one of the hottest non-profit startups. Leila Janah has the solution for the world's bottom billions. She founded Samasource with the belief that giving dignified work to the world's poorest people is the most effective tool for fighting poverty. Fast Company named Samasource one of the 50 Most Innovative Companies in 2016 because they go into communities lacking living-wage jobs--from the refugee camps of Sierra Leone to rural Arkansas--and train people to do digital work, such as verifying data that makes Google's search algorithms smarter. Inspired by and then partnering with cutting-edge Silicon Valley companies, Janah bridges the divide between the nonprofit world and the tech and private sectors to help the world's poorest lift themselves out of poverty. The steady salary from these jobs from companies like Google, Getty, and Microsoft enables people to move to better neighborhoods, attain more education, and send their children to school. It changes the lives of the poor permanently, offering them dignity and independence in a way that aid simply cannot. Give Work is based on Janah's firsthand experience in all corners of the world, from a school for the blind in Ghana to the World Bank. A Harvard-educated former management consultant, Janah applies the scrappy, entrepreneurial spirit and innovative mindset of a Silicon Valley startup. She shares her entrepreneurial journey as well as the poignant stories of the thousands of people who have benefited from Samasource's work. Like Blake Mycoskie's Start Something That Matters, Give Work offers a blueprint for social entrepreneurs"--Provided by publisher.
