Did you know, With a Mobal phone you don't just travel the world, you make it a better place!

tony smith chairman

It all started with one man's desire to make calls while traveling...

Mobal was the brainchild of Chairman Tony Smith. As a lifelong international traveler, he was constantly frustrated when trying to keep in touch with family, friends & business contacts on his many trips overseas.

On the back of the success of the international cell phone service he has established a number of charities with a desire to change the world.


seibo non profit

In Febuary 2016, Tony set up Seibo, a registered Japanese non-profit organisation with a simple aim: to feed every hungry child in the world a hot meal in school! School feeding carries many benefits- education, nutrition and health, gender equality, food security, poverty alleviation- in one single meal. The world would be changed if every hungry child in it were to receive a meal at school.

Mobal guarantees that the majority of profits go to its charities, so with your Mobal phone, you don't just travel the world, you make it a better place!
