Sixty-seven minutes once a year is not enough to change the world - Vodacom, via the Vodacom Foundation, is making every day a Mandela Day.

Vodacom is dedicated to continuing Madiba’s work, fighting poverty and inequality, striving to eradicate social ills and building a society inspired by the values of the global icon.

Vodacom’s centenary celebration campaign prompts all Vodacom staff to take #ActionAgainstPoverty, inspire change and make every day a Mandela Day.

Focus on the kids

For this Mandela Day, Vodacom is focusing on Early Childhood Development (ECD), as it is a vital first step for the children of SA towards getting a quality education and breaking the cycle of poverty.

The first 1000 days of a child’s life are key to unlocking his or her life-long potential. By age five, almost 90% of a child’s brain is developed. That means that factors such as nutrition, good healthcare, clean environment and education are vital in these early months.  That’s why Vodacom is aligning its volunteerism activity for the Nelson Mandela centenary celebrations to address some of these issues.
