Through Oracle Giving, we support hundreds of excellent nonprofit organizations that advance education across the country. Our grantees are working to solve some of the most pressing challenges, from championing literacy for all to promoting gender equity to expanding access for students from underrepresented communities.
Year round, Oracle Volunteers contribute thousands of volunteer hours to educational causes in India and around the world. During Focus on Education—Oracle’s annual global volunteering initiative—employees give special attention to supporting students, schools, and education-focused nonprofits.
Oracle Academy—a free program that advances computer science education—works with educators across India to drive knowledge, innovation, skills development, and diversity in technology fields. The program fulfilled its commitment to reach half a million students in India annually by 2019.
In 2018, Oracle Academy established key partnerships with information and communications technology (ICT) educational institutions in Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, and Jharkhand to provide free computer science curricula and resources. The program also held 28 training events for educators on Java and database curricula, and engaged more than 10,000 students in the Oracle Academy Virtual Student Day.
