Télécoms Sans Frontières (TSF) was founded in 1998 as the world’s first NGO focusing on emergency-response technologies. During humanitarian crises we give affected people the possibility to contact their loved ones and begin to regain control of their lives, as well as we build rapid-response communications centres for local and international responders.

Thanks to 20 years of experience in the field, our high-skilled technical team adapts and tweaks existing tools to respond to different crises and beneficiaries’ needs in the ever evolving humanitarian context. From its early days, the culture of first emergency response has been core to TSF’s identity, but we have grown and evolved as the role of technologies in emergencies has expanded.

In parallel to this core activity, we also develop, adapt, and make available innovative and cost-effective solutions to assist migrants, refugees, displaced people and other disadvantaged communities in different areas, including education, healthcare, women’s rights and food security.

TSF is a member of the United Nations Emergency Telecommunications Cluster (UNETC), a partner of the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), and a member of the US State Department’s Advisory Committee on International Communications and Information Policy.

Since its creation, TSF responded to over 140 crises in more than 70 countries providing communication means to over 20 million people and nearly 1,000 NGOs.

Talent Foundry

The Talent Foundry


The Talent Foundry helps young people from underserved communities discover what they are amazing at, develop valuable employment skills, and prepare for the world of work. With partners like Capacity Europe, the Talent Foundry provides intensive employability workshops combined with mentoring and coaching to empower young people to win jobs previously out of reach.

Parental income remains the single strongest indicator of educational attainmentm which means too much talent is wasted in society. This has generational consequences on individuals, families and communities. The work the Talent Foundry does with young people in underserved communities responds directly to the challenges and barriers they face – giving them the tools to develop the skills to take their future into their own hands and be independent, active citizens.

The Talent Foundry was founded in 2009 by CEO, Amy Leonard MBE.

Initially set-up as a grant funder with the objective of providing fully funded extra-curricular activities for school students from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds, we wanted to give these students opportunities that were experienced and enjoyed by their peers from more affluent schools.

In 2011, we transitioned to a service delivery organisation and developed an operating model of Design, Deliver and Evaluate, which created bespoke programmes and delivered in partnership with corporate donors. That year we also established our amazing ‘Rock Assembly’ event a combination of a career's festival and pop concert, becoming a real highlight of the year for the students we work with.
