Recognising and motivating excellence in education amongst People Living with Disability

Orange Foundation continues to award top achieving students in the Special Needs Category at the Annual Botswana Examination Council (BEC) Awards and has been supporting these awards since inception in 2010.

Orange Foundation recognises outstanding performance for students with visual and hearing impairment. The awards are held each year in recognition of the student’s hard work and excellence in their final examinations, despite the situation they find themselves in.

The award prizes include among others laptops equipped with JAWS software, which makes learning for the visually impaired easier by converting written text into voice and reading out the information through speakers or headphones.

As part of our strategy, Orange Foundation will continue to support education at different levels throughout the different communities.
