About Us

We make it much easier for migrant communities to stay connected to family and friends back home.

The Lebara Group was founded in 2001 by Rasiah R Leon, Baskaran Kandiah and Ratheesan Yoganathan. They shared a vision to shake up the international calling market.

The trio were in Norway, en route to the airport when inspiration struck: Ratheesan noticed the imposing Telenor building and wondered why they couldn't create a company of their own. On arrival at the airport, the partners borrowed a pen and some paper from the information desk and the concept of Lebara was born - the name coming from the first two letters of the partners names.
