Challenge

Labor-intensive works in Taiwan offer limited transferrable skills, therefore, they are not helpful for employment back home, limiting their options to low-paid laborers or going abroad again. Meanwhile, lots of migrant workers aspire to save up in Taiwan and open a small business such as a grocery store or barber. However, it's difficult to be sustainable or profitable without basic business knowledge and will be easily fall back into poverty.

Solution

Migrant Business School is committed to providing migrant workers with education and skill training during their time in Taiwan. It is an online and offline learning community. We have held over 800 courses with over 1000 students who graduated and there are 260 videos on our 50,000 followers online channel for who can't join offline programs due to the lack of holidays or who are not in Taipei. We provide financial management and entrepreneurship programs, as well as Chinese language courses.

Long-Term Impact

More than 50 alumni have returned and successfully opened small businesses. Adi has a ranch full of 150 goats. He applied business strategy planning with confidence in his business and set the goal to scale up to 600 goats. Evi who opened a restaurant believed Migrant business School enabled her to manage challenges in the future. 5 alumni is working in Taiwanese companies back home with stable salaries. They work as translators and earn 700 USD a month, which is 3 times higher than the average.
