Public Institutions and Foundations

Institutional bodies and foundations are an essential part of international solidarity. TSF is committed to maintaining the quality and diversity of its partners, both institutional and private, to ensure its independence.

TSF actions concretely contribute to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 1, 4, 5, 8 and 10 by:

  • Reducing vulnerability of victims of natural and human made disasters
  • Enhancing the safety and protection of vulnerable populations affected by a wide range of crises
  • Providing quality education, access to digital technologies and relevant employability skills to disadvantaged girls and boys

We look for collaboration opportunities in particular in the following areas:

Natural and human made disasters

In the direct aftermath of sudden-onset disasters, a country’s terrestrial network can be severely damaged, leaving entire regions isolated. Our rapid response teams deploy in less than 24 hours to any crisis zone to provide satellite communication means via internet or telephone to the affected populations, whilst ensuring that the humanitarian community is supported by the necessary communication means to secure the efficacy of their operations.

Humanitarian Protection

Protection and respect of the fundamental rights of the individual must be at the core of any humanitarian response. Through different programs such as information diffusion systems and data collection, TSF develops and implements, in collaboration with local actors, different innovative solutions to enhance people’s safety and minimise the risks in accordance with human rights law, international humanitarian law and refugee law.

Bridging the digital divide

Over half of the global population is online, but the other half is not. Large disparities in access to information and communication technologies (ICTs) still exist between different parts of the world, and even those who have access don’t necessarily have the know-how to maximise their potential. At TSF we implement different projects to provide ICT access and training to empower isolated communities and ensure they can fully reap the benefits of the digital economy.

Education

During humanitarian crises, children’s education is often interrupted. Even when they have the opportunity of some basic informal education, digital skills are not included in what they learn. In these contexts, TSF provides 6-17 years old children with the possibility to learn technical and soft skills in an engaging and collaborative manner. TSF projects keep children’s needs at their core and provide a safe and welcoming environment that encourages children’s independency, critical thinking and problem solving skills.

Research and Development

A tailored humanitarian response requires tailored technical solutions. Our highly specialised technical teams adapt existing off-the-shelf solutions and develop in-house ones to respond to the beneficiaries’ needs in a wide range of humanitarian crises. Our significant field experience developed through years of direct action in the hardest places on the planet makes TSF a unique ‘laboratory NGO’. Thanks to TSF, the larger humanitarian community and commercial companies have advanced and improved in the way they use telecoms in humanitarian contexts.
