SimpleGlobal.com and myMallBox.com kicked off the partnership by helping Keepod complete their Unite for Mathare project; this was the first of its kind, and is officially up-and-running in Mathare (Nairobi, Kenya). The production of a community centre - with hard-discless, refurbished computers - and distribution of 1,500 Keepod devices launched Keepod's initiative to bridge the digital divide within the Mathare community.

Initially, myMallBox.com and SimpleGlobal.com donated their services to Keepod, but their relationship has since evolved into a full-fledged business partnership. By re-imagining the relationship between software and hardware, Keepod's ultimate goal is to provide personal computing to the 5 billion people around the world who currently lack accessible technology; the shipping and logistics experience of both SimpleGlobal.com and myMallBox.com play an integral role within this mission.
