11 October 2011: The deadline for applying to Vodafone Qatar's 2nd "World of Difference" programme is quickly approaching the 22 October deadline, with tens of applications already received.
World of Difference', an initiative part of ‘Better World', Vodafone Qatar's corporate social responsibility strategy, is a unique flagship project and a first in Qatar in which Vodafone Qatar gives 4 people the opportunity to receive funding for 12 months to undertake projects to help the community in Qatar. This could include helping a specific group of people, ways to protect the environment or making an impact on the local animal life
"The programme has clearly generated a great deal of interest. We have received several interesting proposals that show how much people naturally are passionate about making a difference in the lives of others," said Luisa Gentile, Head of Corporate Social Responsibility, Vodafone Qatar.
In its first year in Qatar, the ‘World of Difference' programme provided funding for 4 people in Qatar that undertook projects such as teaching young girls fitness, teaching labourers English and bringing attention to an impoverished area of Qatar.
"I am particularly keen in supporting this programme as it allows people to make a real difference in Qatar. For this purpose, we have created a dedicated section on our web site http://www.vodafone.com.qa/, and opened a World of Difference tab on our Facebook page where hundreds of people have left their comments," said Khalifa Saleh Haroon
Head of Interactive at Vodafone Qatar"
