The Orange Foundation and Orange Business Services have committed to a partnership with the Shankara Special School (a school founded by NGO Sri Sharada Peetham) to support he Sunshine programme. The aim is to improve the quality of life of 70 disadvantaged women ages 15-22, 30 of whom have autism, by providing them with professional training. For the past 15 years, the school has been helping care for vulnerable people, especially women, in the Noida district near New Delhi. The Orange foundation has also supported the "Living with dignity" programme run by NGO Tamana, which facilitates access to professional training for 100 young people with autism. These young people are trained in regional cooking and the most committed of them are offered additional support as they search for jobs.
