Changing the world through the power of technology and collaboration.


Current Priorities

Our work continues with the Syrian Refugee Crisis, one of the largest humanitarian disasters in half a century. Caught in the midst of horrific political and racial conflict, more than 11 million people are displaced: We are actively raising support for the ICT needs of Syrian refugees along migration routes and in countries where refugees have settled. Join us in this critical effort by donating today.
