World of Difference programme

The World of Difference programme is all about supporting social innovators to answer their true calling by providing a full salary to work for the charity of their choice for a year.

What is social innovation?

It’s simply the act of using your creativity to do good just like the Vodafone 2013 winners did for

  • Soar Foundation
  • Irish Men’s Sheds
  • St John of God Menni Services
  • Le Cheile


Who can apply?

Anyone who is over 18 years old, a resident of the Republic of Ireland and who feels they have a true calling to work for a charity that is helping the young people of Ireland.

Are you a social innovator?

If the answer is yes, then:

  1. Choose the charity and project you want to work with
  2. Work with them to create the perfect role
  3. Make an application for the programme
