Our Story

The Theodora project started on the idea of ‘give to get.’ We give disadvantaged African women a better life by assisting underserved and overworked “solopreneurs” and small businesses in the US so that everyone does better business. All working together to a better world.

In Africa, where sex work is often the only viable option for many women, we began brainstorming how to create a way out. An idea was hatched – could virtual assistance work provide to underserved and overworked solopreneurs in the US an exit path to get these women out of sex work?

Who’s Theodora? Theodora was one of the most important empresses of the Byzantine Empire, but her life didn’t start that way. Like the women of Theodora Africa, she had few choices in life and had to make ends meet as an entertainer before she met and married the Emperor Justinian I. She used her keen intelligence and grit to co-rule during one of the most innovative and prosperous periods of the Empire.

We started in 2020 with a pilot group of six women. Today Theodora is serving multiple small businesses with new prospects being added every month. The next step is to help more women in Ghana and to persuade more small US businesses to use Theodora. Following Ghana, other African countries will join the program.
