Jean-Christophe is off to New Delhi, where Orange Business Services employee Alpana is expecting him. Alpana volunteers at the Orange Foundation for the Sunshine project. Her objective is to help girls become independent by teaching them a trade.
Sunshine, a project supported by the Orange Foundation in India
In Noida, New Delhi, NGO Shankara runs a special school that provides medical care, diagnostics and treatment, regardless of patients’ social background or the seriousness of their conditions.
Following an employee’s lead, Orange Business Services co-finances, with the Orange Foundation, the Sunshine project run by the school. It supports girls’ education, providing 70 young students with training in pottery, glass painting, candle-making and sewing with embroidery. In addition, between 15 and 20 Orange volunteers teach various disciplines, including basic computer skills, English, sales and marketing.
The objective is to make the girls autonomous through basic skills – and to help them sell their wares by setting up stands.

Since then, the company has transformed itself with the acquisition of Equant by France Telecom in 2000 and the consolidation and rebranding of the group’s business communication services to Orange Business Services in 2006.
Orange Business Services employs 2,300 people in India.
