We work together.
Our approach is not traditional.
When we build, we collaborate in partnership with a community. We offer guidance on how to succeed in practice and how to make your work as respectful and effective as possible.
But it’s not just us and the communities.
A huge thank you to our all of our wonderful partners.
Without forming the key strategic partnerships on the ground, operationally, and commercially to fund our projects and communities across the globe, we wouldn’t be able to do the wonderful work that we do!
On July 5th, 2021 Hello World partnered with abrdn as they launched their new future-facing, client-supporting brand. Together we are building 64 new abrdn Hello Hubs across Uganda. Their multi-year support has allowed us to recruit new technical and support staff, revolutionising our capacity and allowing the leadership team to focus on development.
Internet Service Provider (ISP)
Roke Telkom provides 24-hour Wi-Fi to every Hello Hub in Uganda. That’s a lot of data! This vital partnership means that every Hub in Uganda has a fast reliable internet connection. And when things do go wrong Roke is on hand to help. Roke Telkom is Ugandan owned and operated and all of their knowledge goes into making every Hello Hub that much better.
Everest Link (ISP)
Everest Link is our lead Internet Service Provider in Nepal. They have led on Hub Builds, driven site selection and delivered training partnerships for Hubs across Nepal. Their knowledge of the unique challenges posed by Nepal’s mountainous terrain is invaluable (their network includes Mount Everest). With their help and guidance, we have taken Hub technology to communities that are close geographically but that take many hours to travel between.
60 Decibels use quantitative and qualitative research methods to ask tens of thousands of beneficiaries across hundreds of social change organisations to judge, based on their own lived experience the materiality of the impact those organisations make to their lives. Hello World is consistently in the top quintile of 60dB’s benchmarking overall as well as against both technology and education-related peers to Hello World.
