The majority of Orange Romania’s CSR projects focus on education. Last year was the second year when the operator organized, in partnership with Salvati Copiii Romania, a series of workshops on how children can use the internet safely within the Scoala Altfel national program.
Some 840 students from Bucharest, Cluj and Iasi took part. #SuperCoders, a programming workshop for children between 10 and 13 was another educational project. As Stan says, digital education is a strategic direction for the Orange Foundation. Digitaliada is a pilot project rolled out in ten schools in rural areas over 2016-2017, based on applications and digital games intended to complement the traditional methods used at school. In addition, last year the company added a social component to the Orange Film program through which its customers had the opportunity to go to a movie with disadvantaged children. The campaign took place in five cities in partnership with Salvati Copiii Romania. Last but not least, Saptamana Voluntariatului is an initiative that combines three strategic pillars for Orange: volunteering, digital inclusion and education.
