True Heroes: SAP Gives a Helping Hand to Orphans in Swaziland
Swaziland is the last absolute monarchy in Africa, and is surrounded by the neighboring states of South Africa and Mozambique. The country has the world’s highest infection rate of HIV/Aids. Nearly 125,000 children have lost at least one parent, and 15,000 households in Swaziland are headed by orphans. “Young
Heroes” is an aid organization that cares for AIDS orphans throughout the country, provides them with food and clothing, and gives them the chance of a school education. Young Heroes relies on donations from around the world.
SAP didn’t just provide the aid organization with hardware, education programs, and software licenses, SAP employees also equipped the Young Heroes database with real-time updating. People from around the world can now quickly decide whether to sponsor a Young Heroes family. And the Young
Heroes employees can respond to potential donors much faster.
