Synopsis: Since 2016, the « Amazing Women » initiative of the Orange Foundation has helped dynamic, highly motivated women participating in the Women’s Digital Center program to realize their dreams. To date, 85 « Amazing Women » have been selected in 14 countries. They are implementing projects from creating a small business (manufacturing soap, production and commercialization of organic manioc, restaurant, bookshop café…) to projects that collectively help all of the women in the Women’s Digital Center (for example: in creating and selling traditional arts and crafts…). For this 5th edition of the initiative, the Orange Foundation is launching a call for proposals in the countries where Orange foundations and affiliates are participating in the Women’s Digital Center program. The objective: continue to empower exceptional women who have a project, and need a little more help to succeed.
Eligible women for the prize have completed training in a Women’s Digital Center.
Projects concerning the creation of small businesses have priority over other projects.
Selected « Amazing Women » receive:
- a financial grant contributing to their project
- an individual coaching on implementation of the project : by a member of the Orange foundation team, an Orange volunteer or an the NGO partner.
