Orange Foundation: taking action for underprivileged people
Fully philanthropic, the Orange Group Foundation’s actions support equal opportunities in a constantly changing world that involves both opportunities and unfair conditions.
Giving people who face major difficulties the means to access education, employment, culture, health: this is the goal for the Foundation, with its 500 partner charities and its dedicated employee volunteers. 30 years of taking action to combat exclusion, focusing in the last few years on supporting professional integration for young people and empowering women to gain more independence through digital technology.
The Foundation for digital solidarity covers the various countries where the Orange Group is present.
1.8 million underprivileged young people and women are able to benefit from our actions each year in all the countries where Orange is present
Society's digital transformation and the issues this is raising in terms of economic aspects and integration are not only opening up opportunities, but also creating risks of divides for people who are excluded from these changes. In all the countries where Orange is present, we are rolling out digital education programs focused in priority on helping young people affected by social exclusion and women in precarious situations. We also adapt specific programs in line with local realities. Our actions are characterized by providing equipment, as well as support in the field through our dedicated employees.
