In the world of internet and new technologies, many things become easier. However, new challenges arise as well. That is why we made it our mission to teach others how to use new technologies safely, wisely and creatively. We will help you become a safe internet user. What do we do?
The first digital education programme for after school clubs in Poland. Children at the age of 6-10 learn the principles of safe internet use while playing and working in groups. They learn the basics of netiquette, privacy protection, copyright, roles of distinguishing truth from falsehood online, as well as creating simple graphics, sounds and videos. The whole programme is based on a cartoon story. Teachers are provided with complete sets of didactic materials. A total of 600 schools and almost 15,000 children participate in our MegaMission.
The workshops are organised into themes tailored to the Polish school curriculum: natural sciences, mathematics and technology, music, Polish language and media. Children learn the basics of coding and expand their knowledge in the given field. We offer comprehensive training to teachers and provide schools with grants to purchase needed equipment. #SuperCoders is a head start towards a bright future in the digital age!
Orange Studios are multimedia common rooms in small towns and villages, which we create and help to manage. We have equipped them with free internet access, computers, TV, printers and furniture. The purpose is to provide members of local communities with access to new technologies, courses and workshops in modern meeting places. So far we have created 100 across the country until now.
Safety Here and There
Children are going online at an increasingly young age. They use the internet to play, learn and build relationships. But they do not always know how to do it safely. This is why, within the Safety Here and There programme, we provide and support education in schools and kindergartens. Together with hundreds of volunteers, we teach children the principles of online safety. We also have something for parents and guardians: an interactive guide teaching how to protect their children online and better understand their digital fascination: www.fundacja.orange.pl/kurs
Orange Corporate Volunteering
Volunteers are the heart of our Foundation. Even when they are away from their offices, employees of Orange Polska can still do amazing things: they teach the principles of online safety to children, help the elderly learn to use computers, renovate children’s common rooms in hospitals as well as implement their own ideas for aid projects. They work both as digital guides and skilled helpers. There are more than 3,000 volunteers a year working with our Foundation.
The Orange Foundation in Poland shares the potential of human energy and creativity to change the world for the better.
