Giving Philosophy

At IRIO, the mission is more than a connected community.
Our objective is to help people with every message we deliver.
With the Ten for One initiative, we achieve something greater because we’re not only connecting communities, we’re saving them. Our fight is for a better future, and our way is through a text message. Lives are changed. Forests are reborn. Hunger and poverty can finally be put to rest. Our hope lies in the message.

How We Help

  • Send A Message

    Send a text message. By doing so, one sheet of paper is saved.

  • Save A Tree

    One tree consists of around 8,333 sheets of paper. So 8,333 texts saves one tree.

  • Plant A Tree

    When one tree is saved, we plant ten trees. Life sustaining trees!
