Summary

We are One-Forty, a non-profit organization committed to empowering Southeast Asian migrant workers through education. Our mission goes beyond helping them adjust to life away from home; we aspire to extend our impact to their homelands, equipping them with the tools to achieve financial independence. Our goal is to break the cycle of poverty that has entrapped them and unlock doors to brighter futures not only for themselves but for their families and the generations that follow.

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

Annually, we provide 1000 learning kits to newly arrived migrant workers, granting them access to physical educational materials and online resources. Whether in urban or rural areas, migrant workers can learn and overcome language barriers, learn more about new cultures, and enhance communication with their employers. Moreover, we empower migrant workers not only to adapt but also to reshape their future by offering financial management and entrepreneurship support.

Long-Term Impact

One-Forty created the largest learning community for migrant workers in Taiwan, which to date has engaged more than 70,000 migrant workers. We hope to shine a light on how migrant workers inspire diversity and inclusion in our society. One-Forty bridges the gap between migrant workers and the Taiwanese public, nurturing understanding and empathy. We strive to cultivate a society that celebrates diversity, embraces inclusivity, and extends a genuine welcome to all.
