Who we are

Digital Divide Data creates better futures for disadvantaged young women and men in emerging economies through employment in a financially sustainable social business.

As an internationally acclaimed social enterprise and Impact Sourcing Service Provider, we create jobs for talented young men and women who deliver high-quality content business process outsourcing services to clients globally. This business empowers our staff with the skills and experience they need to lift themselves out of poverty.

Founded in 2001, our proven Impact Sourcing model develops a strong workforce in countries with untapped talent. We identify and recruit motivated, disadvantaged youth who would not otherwise have access to good jobs or higher education. We then train and employ them at a fair wage, while offering them scholarships to attend university. DDD alumni go on to high-skilled positions in which they earn more than four times the average regional wage, breaking the cycle of poverty that traps their families. They can send family members to school and raise their household's standard of living, increasing their social impact on their communities. With our scalable approach to growth, we now employ more than 1000 people across our offices in Cambodia, Laos, and Kenya.

Every client project directly contributes to the impact we have on our staff and economic development in their communities. Our mission makes DDD a more responsible and responsive partner to clients such as Ancestry.com, Benetech and Stanford University. Our model has been recognized by Boeing, Cisco Systems and Microsoft—and by the Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship, the World Bank Development Marketplace, the Rockefeller Foundation and the United Nations Development Program, among others. DDD has been featured by media such as CNN, the New York Times, the BBC, and was profiled in Thomas Friedman's bestseller, The World is Flat.
