Worldcom Foundation is a non-profit organization involved in the development of communication systems. Worldcom works as a solution provider for groups and organisations working in the field of development issues, especially in the South.
Worldcom was founded in 1992 to provide a legal framework for people working in communication projects (mainly in Central America) on an individual basis, to establish an infrastructure to support technical projects related to North-South issues.
Originally, Worldcom was mainly engaged in developing systems for analog communication. Since the emergence of global digital networks (Internet) with their great potential as platform for communication, Worldcom has become increasingly involved in the development of digital communication solutions.
Worldcom has developed projects together with partners in Latin-America, Africa and Europe, occasionally in cooperation with major Dutch funding organisations (Bilance, CMC, SCO-CAF).
