The Vodafone New Zealand Foundation has a vision – to see all young people in Aotearoa, New Zealand to living lives they value. With their energy and creativity, together with the right support, young people can achieve truly amazing things.

The Vodafone Foundation has been giving globally since 1991 and the New Zealand Foundation is one of 27 Vodafone Foundations around the world. For over 25 years, we have used our fundraising capability and access to Vodafone networks, technology, customers and employees to connect communities with the tools they need to make a difference.

In New Zealand, we’ve been working since 2002, and focused on youth development since 2007. Over that time, we’ve invested more than $25 million in local communities, primarily through our World of Difference programmes.

We are dedicated to creating a thriving and prosperous Aotearoa New Zealand, where all young people can live lives they value. According to Treasury New Zealand, there are 210,000 children and young people who don’t have access to the resources and support they need to grow into the great adults they want to be. We want to change that.


The Vodafone New Zealand Foundation is on a 10 year, $20 million journey to transform the lives of 210,000 young people.
