Jaleesa is a social impact tech startup that connects families with a trusted childcare service provider. Through Jaleesa’s website/app, parents can search for and book babysitters available in their area. Sitters benefit from our vetting, training, and access to work. We've worked with over 200 families in Beirut and Mount Lebanon, and currently, have 86 trained and vetted carers on our site. We recruit as many sitters as possible from underprivileged backgrounds, through partnerships with local and international NGOs. So far 28c from every dollar sold has been reinvested in vulnerable communities. Our mission is to build a business with a social impact that scales with our success.
