The Vodafone Foundation
invests in the communities in which Vodafone operates.
The Vodafone Foundation is at the centre of a network of Vodafone's global and local social investment programmes.
Globally, our Foundation makes social investments by funding projects which support disaster relief and preparedness including our Red Alert Programme, through projects which use mobile technology for the benefit of all, and via our unique World of Difference programme.
In countries in which Vodafone operates, our social investment is delivered by a unique footprint of 27 Vodafone Foundations and social investment programmes. These programmes are directed and chosen by the Foundation Trustees and receive funding from the Vodafone Foundation in the UK as well as their local Vodafone company.
The Vodafone Foundation received recognition as registered charity number 1089625 from the Charity Commission for England and Wales on 4 December 2001.
