Make every migrant’s journey worthy and inspiring is our mission. We are dedicated to building a support system for migrant workers throughout their journey. Not only we will do research before our programs are launched, but also we will visit our alumni who are back to their countries and trace the impact of our programs. At the same time, visiting Taiwanese companies in Southeast Asia to understand their talent demand, and helping our students for job matching after they finish their work in Taiwan. For example, 5 of our alumni are working in Taiwanese companies in Indonesia with higher salaries than average. Alumni can always participate in the online Facebook community after graduate, and share job hunting information with others.


More than 50 alumni have returned to their home countries and successfully opened small businesses. For example, Adi has a ranch full of 150 goats. What he has learned the most in One-Forty is business strategy and finance management. His goal is to scale up to 600 goats and he are more confidence about his plan now. Another example is Evi who opens a restaurant back home. She believed the program enabled her to anticipate challenges in the future and know how to tackle them. Meanwhile, there are over 5 alumni working in Taiwanese companies back home with stable salaries. Yani And Yusni now work as translators and earn 700 USD a month, which is 3 times higher than the average.
