Some people stand still in front of challenges, others turn their challenges into opportunities to succeed and to go places. Socially responsible as always, Orange Egypt raises awareness of one of the most overlooked disorders, autism, and sheds the light on heroes and successful models, who leave nothing standing in the way of carving a great career. The leading network operator seizes every opportunity to celebrate these models and share their stories with the community.
In line with World Autism Awareness Day, which was declared by the United Nations General Assembly on April 2 every year, Orange Egypt honors Mohamed Khaled, Public Relations and Social Responsibility at Orange Egypt, who demonstrated a heroic example of willpower and persistence in combating the challenges of autism. Khaled, instead of allowing autism to stand in his way of building a great career, has worked on resisting its symptoms and its impact on his life. With a lot of grit and determination, Khaled has made tremendous progress and achieved good results both on a personal and professional level. Honoring Khaled and other successful models emphasizes Orange’s core values and its social responsibility not only within the organization but also outside of it.
On a similar note, and on the occasion of Mother’s Day and World Autism Awareness Day, Orange Egypt organized a joyful event felt with love and good vibes at its headquarters inviting mothers and their autistic kids to raise awareness of autism and how to deal with it. As a token of love, the mothers and gifts the mothers and their kids were given tablets with preinstalled applications especially designed for autistic children to develop their abilities. Among these applications is BabNoor, the number 1 application in Arabic that serves children with autism and other special needs groups by establishing a new alternative and assistive channel of communication, according to the best international practices of assistive technology, and in line with the Arabian culture and tradition.
The event, with its exceptional and heartwarming atmosphere, was designed to shed light on mothers of autistic children and the heroic role they play in their upbringing and helping them become effective members of the community. Both the event and honoring their outstanding employee, Mohamed Khaled, reflect Orange’s support for several causes and its keenness to present successful models in the community and to show its appreciation to every hero in every different story.
