The Vodafone Ghana Foundation has inducted 50 volunteers for its World of Difference programme, aimed at positively impacting the lives of less-privileged communities and individuals by leveraging on individual and corporate philanthropy.

In its second year of running, the programme gives individuals who are passionate about social development a platform to work with a charity of their choice for two months and support them with their professional and intellectual skills and expertise.

The 50 finalists are professionals in their individual careers, are driven by a quest for social good, and will be stepping out of their comfort zones to embark on projects they truly believe in.

The Vodafone Ghana Foundation will give them monthly stipends ranging from GH¢1,000 to GH¢2,000. Following its successful launch last year, the World of Difference programme attracted over 500 applicants whose forms were taken through a thorough interview session by a four-member panel.

The Head of External Affairs at Vodafone Ghana, Patrick Boateng, said: “We are very happy to be empowering these 50 volunteers from varied professional backgrounds to go all out and undertake life-changing projects they have always been passionate about.

“Empowerment is our brand-promise, and we are glad to be providing them with the adequate training and support they need for the implementation of these projects which will make meaningful impacts in the lives of their selected communities”.

He added: “The Vodafone Foundation believes in partnering with like-minded individuals and organisations to bring about social and economic change in our society. We are confident that when we join hands we are able to achieve more.

It is the little contribution from each one of us that makes a difference when we put it all together. That is why we are empowering these young professionals to undertake their dream projects.

The 50 volunteers were taken through the Vodafone Way training and induction to groom them on how to take up the projects they have set for themselves individually.

The Vodafone World of Difference is an annual community charity programme launched in 2009. It currently runs in 17 Vodafone operating countries. Applications are opened to Ghanaian residents who are 18 years and above.
