Our activities

Networks

We invest  1 billion euros every year in Africa and Middle East, putting Orange at the forefront of the digital transformation. 4G is now available in 15 countries in Africa and the Middle-East, with 16.7 million customers at the end of 2018.

Financial Services

Long excluded from the banking system, 40 million Africans have opened Orange Money accounts. Our flagship mobile-based money transfer and financial services provides reliable, secure and instantaneous transactions.

Energy

More than 1 in 2 Africans has no access to electricity. The electrification of the continent is a real challenge that we want to address. Orange is already offering a range of Orange Energy solar kits for individuals and professionals in 7 countries. These mobile solutions provide access to electricity for all with a sustainable power supply.

Education

Teaching and vocational training are unquestionably the most strategic digital revolutions for Africa. Digital is the only way to quickly train millions of people, vital for ensuring Africa’s independent and long-lasting development.

Agriculture

Agriculture is a key area in Africa. We advise African farmers thanks to mobile services which enable an increase of their revenues by an average of 10% to 30%.These mobile services provide real innovations for the whole agriculture sector of the continent and are part of the dynamic support of its digital transformation.

Healthcare

Orange partnered with the Ministries of Health of the countries to improve the health through innovative solutions. The "M-Vaccin" project is a prime example of this. The aim is to improve vaccination coverage of regions with the lowest rates by sensibilising the parents and communities.
