The Karya Promise
Karya aims to be an industry leader in building ethical ways of data collection that fairly reward data collectors. The following are the four key principles that uphold our work at Karya.
We will always prioritise maximising worker wages. We currently offer our workers a minimum wage of USD 5/hr for their work.
Wherever possible, we will create datasets that are owned in-principle by our workers. This means that whenever these datasets are resold, our workers will receive data royalties for their work.
Any profit earned is redirected to our workers, helping us improve their wellbeing. This is done through the Karya Foundation.
Our technology will remain available to any organisation that is committed to the Ethical Data Principles, enabling them to build on our work.
