So Let’s talk.
Specifically, let’s talk about the Value of a Single Minute!

If you had “just” 1 extra minute on your cell phone to connect with someone, how would you spend those 60 special seconds?

How important are minutes?
Why are we giving them away?

In developing nations, people connect with each other using cell phones, but their cell phone plans are limited; they use individual minutes, and have to use them wisely.
They “top up” their minutes every week, when they can afford to, and also use those minutes as a form of currency by trading them for goods & services, because they cannot access cash or use a credit or debit card. Unfortunately, not everyone has a bank or ATM on every corner. In many areas, credit cards don’t help because there’s no way to swipe them in a store; there’s also no Apple Pay on their watch, no Samsung Pay on their phones, and no Amazon deliveries coming, thanks to Alexa.
Life is very different when you don’t have a bank or the systems we use every day.
These folks have to manage their money and purchases differently, Including through the use of minutes on their phone.

Women For A Better World started a special program, where we are topping up phones for people in developing areas, aspiring to improve their lives and the lives of others!


WE are donating a BitMinute for Every BitMinute YOU donate!


All BitMinutes donated will be used to top up the airtime on someone’s cell phone.
We’re matching your donation – BitMinute for Bitminute!

So now think about it again…

If you had “just” 1 extra minute on your cell phone to connect with someone how would YOU spend those 60 special seconds?!

We Provide Universal Phone Minutes Through BitMinutes

So what is a BitMinute?

BitMinutes are not only prepaid cellphone minutes but so much more.

They’re not “just” cell phone minutes!
You have a cell phone within reach, right?

You’ve paid a carrier for access to their network to talk and text? Of course! ‘But once you paid for the time, that money became “locked up” inside your phone as “minutes.”

BitMinutes are different!  They can be used:

*  for talking on your phone   *  as a value (ie: money) to send to another person *  to make purchases  * offered as a loan to another person     *  sent to another person – even using a different carrier – to top up their phone *   simply transferred to your bank or cashed in through a TAN agent

We’re happy to meet you!
We’re excited about our partnership and your ideas!!
