'Hands Up' is a shortened version of the World of Difference program created exclusively for our Vodafone employees. ‘Hands Up’ gives them the opportunity to go and work for a charity of their choice for a 3-month secondment to deliver a particular project defined in conjunction with the charity. In 2011 Vodafone and the Vodafone Foundation are pleased to announce that we have three 'Hands Up' participants working with a variety of different charities:
Bernard Thomas from the Vodafone Project Management team in NSW will be supporting Karitane. His goal is to create a DVD to support new mothers and support Karitane's aim of assisting new parents through education and clinical services to ensure every child is safe, healthy and nurtured by confident families and communities.
Sarah Porcaro from the Vodafone South Australian Retail team will be working with ‘Camp Quality’ to develop their volunteer program. She wants to recruit 30 new volunteers and support them to understand how 'Camp Quality' run their signature camps as well as evolving their volunteer communication strategy and networking program.
Jemma Stead from the Vodafone South Australian sales team will be working with the RSPCA. Her goal is to evaluate and analyse the RSPCA’s approach to corporate sponsorship to assist with seeking 5 more corporate supporters for funding and volunteering opportunities as well as acquire 3 new organisations who support work place giving for RSPCA.
