Our Story

WeShine is born out of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Covid-19 has affected the livelihoods of many people. In many cases, the people who form the foundations of society has been affected the most. Inequality has widened and United Nations estimated that we may lose a decade of development in poverty alleviation. These problems were always there but Covid-19 brought an awakening to the urgency of the employment problems that the world faces.

For many people who form the foundations of our society, there are very few tools and services that's relevant and helpful to their needs regarding jobs and skills. We are determined to provide such tools and services and in doing so, journey with people towards a better livelihood and a better life. While the Covid-19 crisis has brought much hardship and challenges to people, it has also presented tremendous opportunities especially in the acceleration of technology adoption in many aspects of life. We pledge to understand and render the right assistance to uplift our talents.

From here we write the story of WeShine. Join us in writing this story.
