THE VODACOM VOLUNTEERS PROGRAMME

 

The Vodacom Volunteers programme was established in 2006 and creates opportunities for Vodacom employees to volunteer their goods, time, skills and cash. Every Vodacom employee has 16 hours paid leave per annum to perform volunteer activities. Vodacom further supports a culture of volunteering by matching funds raised by employees and offers financial support towards the purchase of equipment and tools when a Vodacom team performs volunteer activities.

Over the past year (2015/16) Vodacom staff have contributed over R500,000 through payroll giving and 6,000 staff members have volunteered either their time, goods, cash or skills.
