The Solutions for Good Program


The Solutions for Good initiative is in response to the challenges faced by non-profit organisations that are unable to create a transformational impact due to the lack of the skills and resources required to build on their technology solutions.

Vodafone Foundation, along with principal partner NASSCOM Foundation, will seek to address this challenge by building technology solutions for selected not-for-profit organisations in India and empower them to create large scale social impact. It can be in various sectors like health, education, women’s empowerment etc.

It is looking for NGOs to apply to this program and if selected, we will build a tech solution for them to help them scale & build capacity.
