Vodacom Foundation


The Vodacom Foundation has selected three priority areas for social investment funding and these are education, health and welfare as well safety and security. In selecting the projects in which the Foundation, which is the corporate social investment arm of South Africas leading cellular communications company Vodacom, primarily looks at such characteristics as positive impact, sustainability and cost-effectiveness of a project.

The Foundation has followed the same criteria in its decision to make a multimillion rand investment in Cell-Life, within the area of health.
