Employees at prime employer for women, Vodafone, are raising £1 million for Vodafone Foundation's Girl Fund which is supporting charitable programmes that use technology to address some of the biggest issues affecting girls today.

Vodafone has a history of striving for gender equality, but there is still so much to do. That's why Vodafone Foundation has joined forces with Girl Effect to connect 7 million girls in Africa and India to information that can help them break the cycle of poverty.

Shining a light for girls and making a stand

With the support of Vodafone's employees, the Foundation is going one step further: #ShineALight for girls gives everyone working at Vodafone a chance to take a stand against gender inequality by helping raise £1 million to address some of the big issues affecting girls today, such as self-harm, period poverty, trafficking and displacement. Vodafone employees are taking part in events including a recent virtual cycle challenge to raise money for the important cause.

Vodafone shared on social media "A huge well done to our charity cyclists who pedalled the length of England (645 miles!) for the #ShineALight campaign! Together, they raised nearly £400 over three days of virtual cycling, which will be matched by the Vodafone Foundation! These efforts raise money for the Vodafone Foundation’s Girl Fund which support programmes to improve girls’ access to education, informal learning and health services."

All money raised goes straight to Vodafone Foundation's Girl Fund, a restricted fund dedicated to supporting charitable programmes that use technology to improve girls access to education, informal learning and health services in countries where Vodafone operates.
