The funding we receive from corporate and foundation partners goes towards our operational costs and technology projects. Partners like Daiwa Securities, Russell Investments and ExxonMobil Foundation, who have supported us since our early days, have been crucial to our growth as an organisation. New partners like ENERGIA, Development Innovation Ventures at USAID, and Japan Airlines are helping us reach more people in the most remote parts of the developing world. We are extremely grateful for the support we receive from all of our funding partners, both large and small.

The in-kind support we receive from a range of partners helps us work more efficiently and effectively to serve the last mile. By providing free or discounted services, these partners help us keep our operational costs low. We are very thankful for the support we receive from our in-kind partners, which includes accounting, graphic design, filmmaking, flights, legal services, photography, software licenses, strategic communications and videography.

We're thrilled that our funding and in-kind partners share our passion for serving the last mile, and we welcome interest from new partners wishing to join us in connecting simple technology with the people who need it the most.


Please get in touch via our contact form to let us know what sort of support your organisation can offer. We’ll respond to set up a time to discuss partnership opportunities.
