Leila Janah, Founder and CEO of Samasource, Joins Denver Frederick
For decades now, the preferred method to lift people up and out of global poverty has been international aid. But more and more people have come to realize that it’s not only ineffective, it actually is counterproductive. Direct cash transfers have had some success, but they too pale when compared to providing someone with a job at a living wage. No organization has been able to do that more creatively and energetically than has Samasource. And it’s a great pleasure to have with us this evening, their founder and CEO, Leila Janah.
