Geekcorps is a non-profit organization that sends people with technical skills to developing countries to assist in computer infrastructure development. It is a division of the International Executive Service Corps which "promotes
economic growth in the developing world by sending highly skilled
technology volunteers to teach communities how to use innovative and
affordable information and communication technologies to solve
development problems
." Founded in 2000 in North Adams, Massachusetts, its head office is now located in Washington, D.C.

In 2005, Geekcorps' largest overseas project was based in Mali, with headquarters in Bamako. The project is mainly working with radio stations, but is also involved in the development of local language resources, including an edition of Wikipedia in Bambara.
