About Us
We are South East Asia's only community network that promotes working from home, teleworking and the running of SOHO businesses through the use of information and communications technology. Our e-community promotes self-help, business partnerships and entrepreneurship development for those who want to balance work and home life. Our social profit is derived from a pro-poor project focusing on eco-baskets production and service provision to empower women to embark on social-economic self-reliance.

UNIQUENESS OF OUR COMMUNITY

This is the only local portal that promotes the concept of working from home by providing resources and a platform for homemakers and homeworkers to teletrade and tele-exchange.

Our grassroot community's endeavours are in line with the Ministry of Women Women, Family and Community Development's policy to promote working at home as a way to help working women with child-care problems. Our network of homemakers and home workers have been advocating for this policy since 1998.
