About us – Custom

Our mission is to leverage technology and the internet

to develop and connect marginalized communities to global economy

Genashtim was founded in 2008 with the purpose of providing sustainable, meaningful and gainful employment for the disadvantaged, especially for those from the less-developed economies. In creating a workplace which is inclusive and accessible especially for those with disabilities, we had to develop a 100% work-from-home model. This also led us to build a totally digitalized operation, focussing on eLearning.

It is providential that our challenges in trying to accommodate our diverse workforce have led us to become pioneers in remote work, digitalization and eLearning, which has in turn fuelled exponential growth in our business during the COVID-19 years.

In March 2018

We had 70 employees, of which 90% were persons with disabilities from more than 10 countries around the world. At that point, we started hiring refugees, and other disadvantaged people like the HIV-infected, seniors, and women living under oppression.

PWDs 70%

As of January 2022

We have 150 employees spread all over 20 countries on 6 continents. More than half of them are persons with disabilities, with another 20 to 30% from other disadvantaged groups.
