Our work in providing funding to partners is changing lives, but these investments don’t reflect the passion of our employees. The Vodacom Volunteers programme – established in 2006 – creates opportunities within a secure environment for our employees to volunteer their goods, time, skills and cash. Each employee gets two days paid leave per year to perform volunteer activities. In July every year, Vodacom employees are encouraged to join community activities during company time, using tools and equipment provided by the Vodacom Foundation.
We further support a culture of volunteering by matching funds raised by employees and offering financial support towards the purchase of equipment and tools when a Vodacom team plans volunteer activities.
And through our Vodacom Red Alert and Vodacom Connect for Change programmes, we give subscribers the opportunity to donate to worthy causes.
