VODACOM’S new initiative, “Change the World”, will give 10 people the chance to work for 10 South African-based charity organisations for six months next year and get paid for it.

The volunteers will be selected through a carefully adjudicated procedure and receive a monthly allowance, a laptop, cellphone and pre-paid credit. Each of the 10 charities will receive R240 000.

Applicants should be South African citizens older than 18 and apply by December 8. Successful applicants will start work on April 4, 2011. For more information, visit http://changetheworld.vodacom.co.za or SMS ‘change’ to 31118.
