Why We Do It
Vodacom is Tanzania's leading cellular network and with our success comes the responsibility of giving back to our society in a meaningful and sustainable fashion. The Vodacom Foundation was created in July, 2006, for this purpose. the Foundation focuses Vodacom's corporate social investment efforts with the aim of improving the lives of Tanzanians through poverty alleviation and promoting economic development.
The Foundation looks at four key areas, namely, Education, Health, Economic empowerment and social welfare which are in line with Tanzania's National development priorities. Of late, the foundation has instituted Vodafone Red Alert with the aim of assisting victims of natural disasters in the country.
