Community

  • Mobilizing for a healthy future

    In collaboration with Indian Cancer Society, Oracle Volunteers helped promote a healthy and active lifestyle by participating in a 10K run aimed at creating awareness around cancer prevention.

  • Spreading cheer among children in need

    Oracle Volunteers joined Divya Downs Development Trust to spread happiness among children with developmental disabilities by hosting arts and crafts sessions. These sessions helped boost self-esteem and develop vocational skills among children with Down syndrome.

  • Training nonprofits on technical skills

    Oracle Volunteers used their technical skills for training field staff from The Language and Learning Foundation. The trainings included Advanced Microsoft PowerPoint and Excel, focused on enhancing presentation skills and using data for decision-making.

Education

  • Supporting children with disabilities

    Equitable and inclusive learning experiences are essential to meeting the needs of students with disabilities. In collaboration with UNICEF India, Oracle Volunteers facilitated the “Children for Children” project to host Indian sign language sessions for children with hearing disabilities.

  • Teaching students online safety

    To help keep students safe online, Oracle Volunteers engaged more than 2,500 students from 10 schools in the Cyber Bright, Cyber Right project, in which they taught the importance of privacy on social media, ways to prevent cyberbullying and how to navigate the internet safely.

  • Preparing students for successful careers

    In celebration of International Women’s Day, Oracle Volunteers collaborated with the Vi Foundation to engage with underserved girls in activities to inspire their creativity, including arts and storytelling.

Environment

  • Protecting our oceans and waterways

    Every piece of plastic or other litter you pick up is one less piece that ends up in the ocean. During Focus on Environment, Oracle Volunteers across India joined forces with Helping Hands Organisation to clean their local beaches and fresh waterways, as well as cities, neighborhoods and parks.

  • Restoring local ecosystems

    In collaboration with Bhumi, Oracle Volunteers across eight cities prepared more than 16,000 seed balls of indigenous seeds and scattered them in open areas at the onset of monsoons. These efforts help protect and restore local ecosystems.

  • Greening communities

    Teaming up with Seva Charitable Trust, Oracle Volunteers celebrated Earth Day by planting fruit trees in Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Mumbai to enhance the local eco-system. Numerous other plantation drives were conducted across the country.
