My name is Emma Rogan. In September 2012 I entered the Vodafone Foundation Ireland World of Difference competition. This is a programme that gives people the opportunity to work for the charity of their choice for one year. After a seriously well thought application, intensive interviews, big-time dreaming, I won! I am now working with MS Ireland on Advocacy, Policy and Information until November 2013.
The Vodafone Foundation pays the person’s salary as well as providing training and networking opportunities. The benefit for the charity is it gets an employee passionate and capable of doing the work required.
