for Good

We believe in the power of connectivity to change lives. We use technology for good, creating solutions that bring about sustainable change, and can be scaled to benefit the greatest number of people across Vodafone’s global footprint.  

About us

Through a strategy of Connecting for Good, Vodafone Foundation (UK registered charity 1193984) combines Vodafone's charitable giving and technology to create long-term, sustainable programmes that help to address the world’s most pressing problems.

Vodafone Group Plc is our principal funder for projects around the world that are run in partnership with other charitable organisations & NGOs.

Our work is centred around four core pillars of activity; Connected Learning, Connected Health, Connected Living, and a portfolio of apps.

Our local foundations

We’re at the centre of a network of 27 local social investment programmes, known as the local foundations. Together, we are one of the world’s largest corporate funding networks.

This global network makes us uniquely effective, enabling us to build strong local partnerships, think and act locally, and best respond to the specific needs of the communities in which Vodafone operates.

Our social enterprise

Vodafone Business Ventures is the social enterprise division of Vodafone Business and Vodafone Foundation, combining a focus on social purpose with Vodafone’s technological expertise to change lives for the better and empower those with less access to technological resources.

Ventures was founded by Vodafone Foundation to bring forward projects delivering significant public benefit to new audiences. All profits are channelled back into the Foundation, to help drive forward their work using technology for positive social change in the communities where Vodafone operates.
