Seetaramaiah G, deputy manager, Vodafone AP & Telangana Circle, has taken a break from his regular job for eight weeks to help city-based NGO Voice 4 Girls to raise funds. Another Vodafone employee Yesudas Antony is working with the Health Management and Research Institute as a knowledge management specialist.

Both Seetaramaiah and Yesudas are amongst the four Vodafone employees working with two NGOs in Hyderabad as part of the fourth edition of World of Difference programme. World of Difference (WOD) is Vodafone Foundation’s flagship programme that takes corporate giving beyond the traditional ‘cheque book’ approach.

This year, WOD has 50 qualified Vodafone India employees, drawn from different work streams, working with 25 diverse NGOs for a period of 8 weeks to enhance capacities, address technology gaps and resolve issues impairing women empowerment. All stakeholders, including senior management, HR and business teams come together to collaborate for the programme’s success.

As a part of the WOD programme, Rohit Tandon, business head, AP & Telangana, Vodafone India, visited the Voice 4 Girls NGO to understand the projects undertaken by employees. Since 2011, 78 skilled employees have donated over 38,500 man-hours working on 73 different social projects with diverse NGOs on defined projects. While working with NGOs, the employees continued to receive their salary and all related benefits from Vodafone India and came back richer with the experience gained of working first hand with communities, trying to address real social issues and challenges.
