The Vodafone Foundation is focused on investing in projects that produce meaningful change, at scale and with lasting impact.

We have an ambition to improve one billion lives by 2025.

Accounting for the broad range of programmes and issues the Foundation invests in, we have devised a single impact indicator, Lives Improved, that we collect for all programmes run by the Vodafone Foundation (UK registered charity 1089625) and affiliated local Vodafone, Vodacom and Safaricom Foundations. This is in conjunction with detailed monitoring and evaluation of individual programmes.

The Vodafone Foundation’s work spans a range of issues. The following chart shows the number of Lives Improved by issue.
