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.

Why Vodacom: From our people
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.
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.
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.
