In many developing countries, very skilled people like academics, don't have a chance to find a suitable job. Transfair seeks to activate this enormous potential and helps them, through their internet platform www.transfair.co to sell skilled services to the developped parts of the world such as translations, research, etc. The payment for these services follows standards for fair pay so that both sides win.
Stephan and his team have created a very simple solution to a huge problem: With his solution, people are able to stay in their country and earn a good living. They can use their full potential and become and the same time business women and men in their community. And also contribute to the general strengthening of their community and stopping the brain drain. Also, this project shows how information technology can provide great tools to empower people - no matter where they live.
