The day spent with the young Orange Poland Foundation team was full of emotion and we loved hearing about the fabulous projects. The busy day started off with a visit to the "Orange Studio" in the village of Ryczywół located 70 km south of Warsaw; the village has 700 residents.
It was a real treat to meet Beata Bogumil - the very enthusiastic coordinator -, the volunteers from the village including Kystyna and Katarzyna, and Karolina Kanar-Kossobudzka who is in charge of the Orange Foundation programme.

The aim of this center, equipped with computers, a TV and furniture funded by the Foundation, is to teach the young people of the village about digital technology.
With the encouragement of Beata and the involvement or an increasing number of volunteers, it has become an inter-generational meeting point with a range of very varied activities exploring all aspects of the digital world (editing images, creating blogs, educational games, etc.).
We were really impressed with the amount of creativity and commitment! A wonderful example to follow...
