We Connect the Unconnected

Télécoms Sans Frontières (TSF) is the world’s first non-profit organization focusing on emergency-response technologies for humanitarian crises. 

We connect the unconnected, from first responders to governments, NGOs, and families who have survived a crisis. We build communications infrastructure to support humanitarian response teams and enable affected people to contact their loved ones to quickly regain control of their lives.
