He stressed that the company is keen on participating and sponsoring this important event, and noted that Egypt has a full generation of future leaders who need assistance, support and guidance from large companies like Orange. He added that, “if we want to make a better world tomorrow, we have to empower young people- whose world it will be – and create the conditions to allow entrepreneurship and creativity to flourish.”
Orange Youth Foundation
Orange Egypt also launched the “Orange Youth Foundation” in 2008 to support education and youth and contribute to the development of Egyptian society by enhancing young people’s skills, which are essential on the job market, in order to open up better job opportunities for them.
The foundation aims to provide job opportunities for university graduates through summer training programmes in fields that correspond to their studies. The foundation also provides educational activities focused on serving the community by offering financial support to a number of Egyptian universities.
The foundation also seeks to increase the number of young people who have the basic skills for private sector employment, and presents awards to academically distinguished students to encourage them to keep up their efforts. It also supports the research activities of Egyptian universities in fields such as communications.
