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. Our “Orange Digital Center” project is designed to exactly meet this need. It is a place built around a new concept, entirely dedicated to innovation. Set-up as a center to support startups, it delivers a wide range of services, from training young people in coding (through Coding Schools as Sonatel Academy) to more direct guidance in ICT related manual trainings (Solidary FabLab), startup acceleration (Orange Fab) to investment in early-stage companies (Orange Digital Ventures Africa). These new sites are dedicated to all kinds of different people, regardless of their level. Orange has already opened 6 Orange Digital Centers and will be establishing similar systems in the rest of its footprint in the Middle East and Africa region, as well as in Europe.
