In our world of nearly 8 billion people, more than half are not able to connect to the Internet.

Mahala is a 501(c)3 non-for-profit organization that is providing free communication and connectivity services to the communities that need it most, empowering tomorrow's entrepeneurs & artisans, farmers & families.

What can you do to help?

Problems this big need communities working together to bring change. We need your help!

Donate Money

Mahala is a 501(c)3 organization in the United States, and all contributions go toward increasing the impact we have in reducing communication inequality around the world.

Donate your Device

In order to reduce global e-waste and bring down unnecessary expenses we accept donations of gently used cell phones. Not all models are eligible, but all donations are tax-deductible.

Become a Carrier

Mahala's unique solution  means that everyone can help carry messages on their phone using just a little extra space (and no extra data!)

Help us Develop

Mahala's communication protocols are open source so they can be used by other hardware and software developers to close the communication divide
