THE VODACOM FOUNDATION: Investing in Projects that make an impact in the community




About the Opportunity

Through a unique network of 27 local foundations and social investment programs, Vodafone invests in the communities in which it operates.

The Vodacom Foundation in South Africa’s foundation. It is committed to making a real and lasting difference in as many people’s lives as possible. We believe that by connecting people we can improve lives. ‘Connecting’ does not simply mean bringing people digital connectivity, it also means bringing people together to maximize impact.


We also believe that large organizations, like Vodacom, have an important role to play in assisting the Government to reduce poverty and inequality and address issues of national importance. We are currently working with the relevant government departments, and partners from the private sector, to make an impact in three key areas: Health; Education; and Safety and Security.



Applications for funding are open to registered Non-Profit Organisations (NPOs). Projects must be:

  • Relevant and focused – in supporting our focus areas on health, education, and safety and security, and providing innovative mobile technology solutions to address key needs in these sectors in South Africa.

  • Measurable - projects must have clearly defined, evidence-based goals that can be tracked through their lifespan.

  • Efficient and effective - projects must have monitoring systems in place to demonstrate their efficiency in running the initiative and their effectiveness in achieving the desired outcomes and impacts.

  • Distinctive and scalable - projects must demonstrate innovation and, if proven, have the potential to be rolled out to other parts of South Africa to create a greater impact.

  • Sustainable - projects must be able to sustain themselves financially, technically, and operationally once Vodacom Foundation funding has ended.
