About this case study

Vodafone’s purpose is to “connect for a better future” enabling an inclusive and sustainable digital society. Its know-how and scale – with over 315 million mobile customers in Europe and across Africa – gives it a unique opportunity to drive positive change for society. Vodafone’s networks connect family, friends, businesses and governments and play a vital role in keeping economies running, including critical sectors like education and healthcare. With such scale, Vodafone recognises not only the positive impacts on people’s rights from digital technology, but also the potential that its operations could impact human rights – including children’s rights, even though Vodafone’s services are not marketed to them.

Based on this insight, the company has been working actively to strengthen children’s rights across their business in the several ways, elaborated in this case study:

  • Contributing to the wellbeing of families by supporting employees as parents and caregivers
  • Understanding the potential impact on children across the marketplace
  • Using commercial product design to support inclusion for all
  • Assessing its impact on children’s rights.
