Just Good Work started with one Kenyan worker in Qatar in 2018. He had repeatedly been deceived and overcharged on his journey to work abroad. Wishing he could have known more of the reality of what to expect from the recruitment and employment experience in a new country, he dreamed up the idea of a mobile app, summing it up like this, "I wouldn’t tell people not to come, I would want them to be able to make better choices."
This idea sparked a journey for our team. We had already been learning about this problem from companies.
The recruitment process and debt bondage stood out time and again as one of the key areas of exploitation, extortion and deception, often leading to modern slavery. It was also one of the least visible and unregulated aspects of supply chains for large companies.
We set to work to build the platform for workers, good employers and labour providers, launching the first pilot version for Kenyans moving to Qatar in 2019.

We believe in empowering job-seekers and workers to be able secure work futures that are safe, profitable and legal, providing guidance at every step of the employment journey, including moving on or the return home.
We have created Just Good Work as a dynamic, interactive tool aimed at increasing knowledge and transparency of the recruitment and employment process, enabling app users and employers to make informed choices.
We know that a tech tool is not enough in itself to bring change, that is why we partner with key organisations and local community groups at grass roots wherever Just Good Work is launched, so that anyone using the app has real people they can go to for support, help and advice.
Just Good Work is an independent, collaborative platform, which seeks to draw others in and provide a tool to promote or enhance existing good work, rather than re-inventing the wheel.
Fifty Eight partner with companies, charities and other organisations to address the challenges of modern slavery and improve working conditions in global supply chains. Fifty Eight reinvests profits into projects that are tackling the root causes of modern slavery.
Ugandan tech accelerator Lift 256, now Refactory, was a key partner at the inception stage of Just Good Work and all our developers are based in Uganda. We believe in creating employment opportunities in areas where people are most vulnerable to being misled into forced or exploitative employment.
