India is a nation on the rise. Its ascension into the international technology scene since the 1990s has helped to bolster a sizeable middle class. But in the midst of that, there are still many in need. The reality is that there are many in need all over the world. You don’t have to work in India to find those who could use the help of their community. A group that is often forgotten throughout the world, is one of the most vulnerable: orphaned children.

Throughout the year, the community of Olive Technology pulls together our resources and we raise money to help those around us. Recently, the team had the blessing of helping to support a local orphanage in Hyderabad, Sneha Sadan Orphanage. It’s always hard to gauge who gets more out of these sorts of visits – the kids, or the adults. Regardless, everyone had fun that day.

Something that’s been true about Olive technology since the beginning is that being a community is about more than just having fun at work – it’s about making a difference in the world around us.
