Jaleesa connects busy parents with experienced, trusted child carers. One in four carers are recruited from underprivileged backgrounds. Jaleesa’s goal is to create 100k jobs.
The Problem: Women struggle to access the workplace in a way that allows maximum economic contribution. Women who have well-paid jobs struggle with antiquated, inflexible child care options, and underprivileged, impoverished women struggle to access the workplace at all.
Milestones: Jaleesa won first prize at the BDL Accelerate 2016 Competition which included a USD 20k cash prize!
