Amazing Women 2020 Call for Proposals

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.
