Without access to communication networks, more than 4 Billion individuals in severely underserved communities lack access to common services like education and representation. We partner with civil society organizations to amplify their efforts in these areas.


We partner with educators and organizations providing formal and informal training to provide unrepresented populations of the world with access to the skills they need to survive and thrive.


We work with civil society organizations in many countries struggle to ensure that communities receive the representation they need in social and political spheres.

Social Services

There are thousands of non-profits providing other social services to millions around the globe. We partner with them to provide last mile communications for these extraordinarily underserved areas.

Financial Services

The unbanked suffer doubly through their inability to access traditional financial institutions as well as formal and informal lines of credit. We work with international, regional and local financial institutions to bridge that gap.

Does Your Organization Provide These Services?

We are always evaluating new partnership opportunities to help you extend your reach and to aid us in extending our impact.

What can you do to help?

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