Orange Foundation Digital Schools, supporting education for the underprivileged

To combat educational inequalities around the world, the Orange Foundation has come up with a scheme to help schools in need of books and digital equipment. The aim? To provide digital access to education for children who do not have access to books or the Internet, to ensure real equality of opportunities.

In concrete terms, with the Digital Schools program, we equip schools with digital kits comprising tablets, computers, video projectors and educational content (lessons, educational games, videos, digital books, etc.) that can be accessed even without an Internet connection. Today, 1,200 schools are equipped and over 500,000 students are supported every year in 18 countries.
