Many South Africans have the skills and passion to really make a difference in their communities - all they need is the means. Enter the Vodacom Change the World programme, which supports visionaries who want to make the world a better place.
The Vodacom Foundation Change the World programme (CTW) gives participants the chance of a lifetime: to work for a non-profit organisation (NPO) for a year, while Vodacom covers their usual salaries.
The 2018 edition is the eighth year this wonderful programme has been running. In honour of International Women’s Week, we take a look at just three of the incredible women who are part of CTW this year.
