In 2020, SAP committed to mentoring 50 LGBTQ refugees in Atlanta, Boston, Minneapolis, New York City, San Francisco, Seattle, Mexico City and Toronto over three years.
SAP committed to empowering 60,000 young refugees between the ages of 8 and 24 over the period of four years with coding skills through yearly ‘Code Weeks’ in nine countries around the world. First announced at the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016, Refugee Code Week supports the United Nations New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, which aims to strengthen the economic and social contribution of migrants to their local communities and host countries. As a pillar of the SAP / UNHCR Refugee Aid Program, Refugee Code Week is a regional digital literacy initiative to empower youth across top host and transit countries with the critical coding skills they need to build for a better future and thrive in the 21st century. SAP works in partnership with UNHCR and ReBootKamp to turn coding literacy into expertise and job placements as a result. SAP has trained 10,500 young people since its launch in 2016.
