Orange Digital Centre has officially inaugurated its 12th centre in Botswana, a one stop place entirely dedicated to the development of digital skills and innovation.
Spread over 390 sq. m, it brings together four strategic programs of the Orange group, namely, a coding school, a solidarity FabLab – one of the Orange Foundation’s digital manufacturing workshops, and an Orange Fab start-up accelerator, supported by Orange Ventures Middle East and Africa, the investment fund of Orange Group.
All programs offered are free and are open for everyone.
They range from digital training for young people, 90% of which are practical, guidance for project bearers, start-up acceleration, and investment in these.
Orange Botswana, in partnership with universities, will train students for free and roll out Orange Digital Center Clubs, extensions of the Orange Digital Center within some universities in the regions.
Following the footsteps of Tunisia, Senegal, Ethiopia, Mali, Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Egypt, Jordan, Madagascar, Morocco, Liberia, Botswana becomes the most recent of all.
