Vodafone offers free connectivity to help not for profit organisations tackle digital exclusion

Vodafone unveiled a new initiative charities.connected to help charities that need support for digital inclusion programmes. Any registered charity in the UK can apply for free connectivity to provide households with internet access and improve digital capacities. Vodafone provides support in the form of SIM cards with 20GB of data, plus free calls and texts every month for six months. The SIM cards will work in any SIM-enabled device (phone, tablet, laptop, or Mifi dongle). ‘We hope that by giving free connectivity to charities across the UK, we can enable them to better support their local communities, particularly those that are digitally excluded. We want to support projects big and small – please help us share this offer so we can reach as many charities as possible,’ said Vodafone UK General Counsel and External Affairs Director Helen Lamprell.
