Treating all people equally obstructs rather than assists the road to equality. People from different walks of life have their own unique personality, backgrounds and history, which fortunately means that no two people are the same. Unfortunately however, this also means that certain individuals are more capable and have certain opportunities that are unavailable to others. As a result, applying the same rulebook to each and every person cannot derive the same result, it can only heighten or perpetuate the inequality that already exists. Therefore, while equality is immensely important, it can only be achieved by treating people fairly not equally.
Kutumbita is the labour workforce’s solution to attaining this fairness. It elevates those whose voices were previously muffled by providing them with a platform in which they can report issues or concerns, share common interests and access information vital to excelling in their careers. We strive to create an environment where each individual should want to work for their family, and the family should work for the individual.
The idea for Kutumbita was born in 2015 when founder, Amira Faruq, noticed that there was no easy way for the non-desk population to convey their grievances to the top management particularly in apparel and manufacturing industries. After two years of painstaking product research, design and development, Kutumbita was launched with one view and one view only- empowering and engaging the factory workforce.
A recent graduate from University of York, Soukaina Faruq is responsible for empowering and educating potential Kutumbita customers and guiding the always-growing customer support department. Not a small task for this fast growing company!

She hails from the world of apparel industry; starting at Bangladesh, and not finding that complicated enough, upgraded her game to the global level. This mother of a three-year-old has been instrumental in local deployment of Kutumbita as well.
After graduating from the University of Toronto, Rameez Hoque has focused on developing the IT sector of Bangladesh through many valuable online platforms.
