The first video shows the SAP Social Sabbatical in action. The social sabbatical is a one month volunteer assignment for top employees who work in international, cross-functional teams to empower organizations in emerging economies. These organizations are in the education and entrepreneurship sectors. Ekua Odoi from Germany came to Shanghai to work together with international colleagues for social fashion label 'NuoMi'. This After four weeks, CEO Bonita Lim called the team and their results "heaven sent". NuoMi is just one of 16 organization that benefited from SAP's know-how and expertise in 2013.

Good Future and Hope Foundation was set up in 2011 with financial and volunteer support from SAP. The group helps children and orphans in great need across the world, providing them with safe and long-term accommodation, sufficient food, and basic medical care and schooling.

This video features 33 children living in the Good Future and Hope orphanage in Uganda who were brought from the streets and extreme misery and provided with education thanks to SAP's support. SAP's involvement in this project gives future to those who would otherwise be abandoned.
