What is #ICreateTomorrow all about?

It is a reminder that we are all responsible for shaping our own future. It’s a call to action to encourage the youth of Uganda to go out and create a future they are proud of.

The philosophy at Vodafone is that we all have the potential to do incredible things. With our network and technology we aim to make the journey to success a little easier.

To prove the seriousness about this, Vodafone has taken three lucky competition winners to London for a once in a lifetime experience. During their trip they are going to meet leaders and influencers in their fields, people who are using technology and creativity to change the future of their industry.

The trip is designed to inspire and enable the winners to create their own tomorrows, to build their own futures and strive to make Uganda a shining light of entrepreneurialism.

What’s Vodafone all about…

It’s hard to imagine a time when we weren’t connected. Now we are connected in many ways and Vodafone has been at the forefront of making this happen. Connectivity has now become essential like water or oxygen. And life with connectivity is better in so many ways.

In the super-connected digital world the real power is not what we do for people but what they can do as a result i.e. people communicating with their loved ones using multimedia, remote communities having access to education and building a better future, happy families enjoying their favorite content at home, businesses improving productivity and planning ahead, or just friends sharing a moment.

We connect people communities and businesses so they can live better every day and inspire them to capture the opportunities of the digital future and build a better tomorrow. This is going to be more important as technology and human behavior feed each other’s progress.
