In the early 1980s, technical content development was in its infancy in the USA. There were no university degree programs in technical communication. Few companies employed technical writers. Product documentation was often written by an engineer or a secretary – and it showed in the quality.
This is the environment in which our founder, Barry Saiff, began his career as a technical writer. Over the ensuing 25+ years, Barry learned how to succeed in a wide variety of environments. He learned how to transform corporate cultures to support the development of excellent documentation. He started several technical writing teams from scratch and led them to repeated successes.

Technical Writing and Multimedia Arts in the Philippines
Thousands of Filipinos enjoy rewarding jobs and lifelong careers as successful technical writers and multimedia artists.
Scope of Success
By the year 2030, Saiff Solutions’ revenue will have reached 1 billion USD per year.
Philippine Business Environment
The culture of work in the Philippines is transformed. Discrimination in hiring and in the workplace on the basis of sex, age, health status, family status, sexual orientation, or religion is rare. Filipino and foreign companies operating in the Philippines value all of their workers, treat them with respect, and see the value of investing generously in their workforce.
Philippine Economic Environment
Poverty is rapidly ending in the Philippines due to an expanded, well-regulated domestic labor market, constant economic growth, and tremendous, well-funded NGOs that prevail in ending poverty through empowering the poorest to have greater opportunity and greater control over their daily lives and their own productivity.
Global Human Environment
Saiff Solutions is committed to the sustainable end of hunger for all humanity. We support The Hunger Project, one of the most effective development NGOs on Earth. The Hunger Project reaches millions of people in thousands of villages on three continents with a global budget of only about 20 million USD, empowering communities to end their own poverty. One of the reasons why The Hunger Project is so cost-effective is their willingness to directly confront the most important root cause of extreme poverty – gender inequality. The organization is working toward a goal of 200 million USD annual funding for The Hunger Project by 2025.
Our founder, Barry Saiff, began volunteering for The Hunger Project in 1981, and generated over 2 million USD for The Hunger Project as a volunteer fundraiser. When The Hunger Project began in 1977, 41,000 people were dying every day worldwide of hunger and hunger-related causes. Despite more than 50% of global population growth (from 4.2 billion to 7+ billion people), today less than 25,000 are dying of hunger. In the last 40 years, humanity has nearly cut in half the deaths from hunger. For the first time in history, it is now possible to end hunger, sustainably, for all humanity, within our lifetimes – by 2030.
We encourage you to explore the short videos and other information at The Hunger Project’s website, and consider whether ending hunger globally should be one of your most important personal goals.
