The Vodacom Change the World programme was first introduced in 2011, giving individuals the opportunity to volunteer their time and skills to work at a non-profit organisation (NPO) for a period of 12 months, at no cost to the NPO. To date 40 volunteers with their 40 respective NPOs have successfully participated and each one of them has made a difference in the timethey worked with their NPO.

Through this programme, Vodacom contributes towards skills development and helps create a culture of volunteering through the transfer of human capital.
