Souktel Digital Solutions

Established 2006


We know the international development sector: It’s where we come from. Our staff have worked at funders like USAID and at organisations like Oxfam and Save the Children. We also know the mobile industry: Our tech team has worked for Africa and Asia’s leading mobile networks, from Orange to Ooredoo. For close to a decade, we’ve combined this development and tech expertise to build award-winning, custom solutions in close to 30 countries for more than 50 clients. Here’s what they love about Souktel’s unique model:


We build fully customized solutions, not cookie-cutter products.


  • Developer teams work directly with you to design platforms that meet your exact needs: Choose your language, layout, and features. Integrate the system with your own website or database.
  • Souktel trainers write custom user manuals for staff and communities. We give you customised training on system management.


We do all the mobile network set-up, so you can focus on project delivery.


  • Souktel works directly with mobile networks to set up your platform, activate hotlines, purchase airtime, and test connectivity for you.
  • We host your platform on dedicated servers in the US. Or we install the software on your own servers.
  • Our support team is available 7 days a week. With our team ready to help, your staff don't need any IT training or experience.


We reach over 500,000 mobile users across the globe.


  • With large user databases in Africa, Asia, and the Americas, we have ready-made audiences for your content and services.


Since 2010, we’ve worked with UNICEF to grow the RapidSMS platform and its users—launching the first Arabic version of the platform, and the first Arabic-language documentation and user communities. For more information, visit us at
