We support nonprofits through high-quality, cost-effective technology solutions so our partners can focus on doing good in the communities who need it most.
A world whose resources are connected through technology.
We are a nonprofit resource for humanitarian organizations who want to reduce the burden of IT procurement and management. We offer free or low-cost network strategies and technology-focused programs to nonprofits around the world. All our services fit within the Information and Communication Technology for Development (ICT4D) approach—using technology for good.
Our programs and services save our partners money and internal resources on research, negotiation, implementation, and management of IT solutions so they can focus on what they do best—developing their own programs for communities in need.
Collaboration is at the core of our programs. We aim to support our peers through technology so their programs, mission, and impact can flourish. All our programs and services stem from requests to meet the challenges of our NGO partners.
As a nonprofit ourselves, we are passionate about empowering NGOs and entire communities to do good through technology. Our programs encourage collaboration and growth while reducing IT costs for nonprofits around the world. We believe access to technology can spark community development and positive social change. All our programs are free to our partners. We use funds from our partner-sponsored services to continue to bring our no-cost programs to more organizations and communities.
Based in San Clemente, California, we work with partners around the world. Our largest presence is in Africa, with programs in 44 African countries. We also support nonprofits and NGOs in the Americas and Caribbean, Asia, Oceania, Europe, and Middle East. Whether you have a hard-to-reach rural office or a large international headquarters, we can bring you the technology you need to grow and do good. If we don't work in your location, contact us today to bring our programs to you!

Vice President, Information and Operations Systems
The level of professionalism and experience working with international technology providers was unparalleled. Because of Telecom4Good’s tireless commitment, the reliability, security, and stability of our Country Offices Network Infrastructure have improved tenfold.
Senior Manager of Network Infrastructure Systems
Telecom4Good has provided us with an excellent 'one-stop' experience for our network connectivity advice and equipment. The experience and local knowledge of the service providers really helped us with our setup and configuration. Being available for advice and consultation during setup and addressing issues has proved invaluable.
We are a small team who believes in supporting partners and communities who are creating lasting, positive change in the world. Our team comes from many different backgrounds, allowing each of us to contribute in unique ways and grow alongside the partners we serve.
CEO Robert Anderson founded Telecom4Good in 2015 with a passion for technology and a calling to support humanitarian work. His experience with international communications and nonprofit organizations gave him an understanding of global business operations and mission-based programs. Telecom4Good has grown exponentially through the partnerships Robert and the Telecom4Good team have formed since our beginning.
My career-long focus on improving quality of service motivates me to find solutions and reduce costs to meet our partners’ business and impact objectives. I am driven to create an environment for NGOs to collaborate and thrive, especially those in Africa. I have personal relationships with 300+ NGOs with more than 2,500 offices globally.
We work with leading NGOs through conferences, round-tables, and webinars and within networks created by Humentum (formally InsideNGO) and NetHope. Hearing directly from nonprofit leaders who tackle large-scale problems and improve communities daily has inspired our programs and our overall vision to use technology for good.
Partnerships are key to our success and impact. Our relationship with Humentum and DisasterReady is a wonderful example of how organizations can use their strengths together, in this case providing online skills-based education to refugees with the aim of supporting sustainable employment in the humanitarian sector.
To meet the needs of our nonprofit partners, we have built a deep-rooted relationship with Cisco Meraki and have made connections with hundreds of internet service providers around the world. We leverage these partnerships to facilitate discounts and other IT support to our NGO partners. In strengthening other nonprofits’ missions and impact, we accomplish our own.
I look forward to connecting with you,
