MAKING THE CONNECTION
How do you connect half the world's population to robust, sustainable communication?
We Build Communities
Leveraging existing Bluetooth and WiFi protocols we create a standalone network that can be brought into any community anywhere in the world.
We redistribute upcycled mobile devices, and load them with the core Mahala software that provides offline connectivity in a mesh network as well as basic training about how to communicate across the network.
As more people join the network, individuals can make calls and send messages to each other within the community—each device connecting securely to the devices around it to form an encrypted chain from the sender to the receiver.
But anyone can load the software onto their own phone and become carriers as well, opening up opportunities for messages to be securely sent and received at greater distances--almost like a digital Pony Express.
