Orange Jordan distributed high-speed internet lines and MiFi devices, in cooperation with the Cultural Forum of the Blind, to support students who are blind or have low vision in continuing their studies.

The support provided comes as formal education continues to be replaced by distance learning in line with official procedures to curb the spread of Covid-19.

The company granted students the lines and MiFi devices to help them utilize the internet in accessing online educational platforms after they received smart devices equipped with screen reading programs.

This support, said Orange Jordan, falls under the “Differently abled, definitely enabled” umbrella launched by the company, as part of its corporate social responsibility, to enhance digital inclusion and enable persons with disabilities in the kingdom by providing digital skills and tools necessary to contribute to socio-economic development.

With the shift to distance learning, Orange Jordan offered free browsing of the “Darsak” platform and supported students to continue studying, as education remains one of the main pillars of its corporate social responsibility and role as a responsible digital leader and the kingdom’s digital partner.
