Spain

The Fundación Orange España was established in 1998. It promotes communication and links between people, with a particular focus on people facing barriers to communication and inclusion. In order to achieve this objective, using the concept of social integration through technology, it runs, collaborates on and encourages various social activities and projects, many of which are based on the possibilities for communication offered through the use of new technologies.
