Vodacom Foundation

In its 20 years of operation, the company has invested over M1 Billion in technology and communications infrastructure in the country. In 2009, the company established the Vodacom Lesotho Foundation, with the aim to develop a more focused strategy to invest into the communities that Vodacom Lesotho services. The Foundation was mandated to invest in critical areas of development such as health, education, social welfare, gender equity & women empowerment, youth empowerment, sports, and cultural development. 


The Foundation, in partnership with Vodafone Foundation, our mother company, has committed to invest a further M100 million, into Lesotho over the next 5 years, in the areas of entrepreneurship and economic development, education, and health. 

Because we share the view that any being is a product of its environment, it was imperative that we set up a pillar whose pure focus is to enhance the lives and living conditions of people, including the caring initiatives for the general environment in which we plough trade.

We further invest in the talent of the country through the Vodacom Innovation Park. 

The Vodacom Innovation Park is an incubator for budding entrepreneurs in any area of business, that are looking to leverage the power of technology and mobile communications to differentiate, and make their businesses more competitive and productive.

Why Vodacom: From our people

Makena Tšukulu


Thanks to Vodacom for this great initiative towards staff’s development. I took various courses under Network skills and improved on aspects that I wasn’t aware of. I urge all who haven’t taken part to do so for their personal development.

Mathabo Mohapi


Oracle Database 11g has developed me to write simple SQL statements to retrieve and modify information from database as I do my daily job activities including roaming reports. I personally encourage my fellow colleagues to engage in SABA e-learning.

Malekhase  Moea


I find continuous education as the best tool to invest in myself at any given opportunity. Vodacom has helped me reach that goal and I’m grateful for that, it’s now up to me to deliver and payback the confidence shown in me.
