The Orange Foundation is launching a new edition of the “World through Colour and Sound” call for projects. The financing fund supports the initiatives proposed by non-profit organizations that want to implement, particularly with the help of digital technologies, projects that benefit persons that have hearing, visual and associated impairments. The Orange Foundation continues to finance, for the fifth consecutive year, projects that contribute to improving the quality of life and social integration of persons with hearing and/or sight impairments by facilitating their access to education, health and culture.
The total value of the financing offered to winning projects stands at EUR 300,000 for 2016. The financial support offered by the Orange Foundation to each project can vary from EUR 20,000 to EUR 50,000. The Orange Foundation invites public institutions and non-profit organizations (associations, foundations or federations, educational, medial and cultural institutions) to file their projects on www.finantare.fundatiaorange.ro by January 21, 2016. The winning projects will be selected by a jury consisting of members of Orange Foundation’s Board of Directors.
The organizations that won funding at the previous edition were Audiosofia Association, Romania’s National Library, Sense International (Romania), ‘St. Mary’ Special School for the Hearing Impaired in Bucharest, the National Association of Authorized Sign Language Interpreters, “Asculta Viata” Association and Lions Club Arad.
Orange Romania Foundation is a non-profit organization that gets involved in the community by offering support to charitable projects meant to bring positive change in the lives of disadvantaged persons. Through the “World through Colour and Sound” fund, the Orange Romania Foundation offers, on annual basis, grants to NGOs that implement projects in the health, education, culture and social integration domains for persons with hearing and/or visual impairments.
