Have you heard about the VODACOM Change the World programme? Vodacom CtW is a volunteer programme that enables skilled South Africans to work at a non-profit organisation of their choice for one year, and be paid for it.
Rosemary Alexander applied to participate in the programme, and the South African Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind was her non-profit organisation of choice. Rosemary’s application was successful, and Rosemary joined the Association on 1 July as Project Officer for the College of Orientation & Mobility. Her brief for the 2014/2015 year is to raise public awareness of the college, and to raise corporate funding for the training of future Orientation & Mobility practitioners.
