SAP and UNICEF partner for skills

SAP and UNICEF have embarked on a partnership to provide quality education, life skills and job skills training to young people in disadvantaged communities.

The three-year partnership will bring together businesses, governments and non-governmental organisations to build sustainable education models. It forms part of Generation Unlimited, a global partnership working to prepare young people to become engaged and productive citizens. The collaboration will help reach young people across Africa, Asia and Europe, with initial efforts focused on India, Turkey and Vietnam.

“People are anxious about the opportunity gap in this new economy,” said SAP CEO Bill McDermott. “Businesses need to take meaningful steps to upskill the current and future workforce, regardless of their age or where they live in the world. Together with UNICEF, SAP will focus on starting in the classroom where the foundation for every career is built. We will increase collaboration with the public sector and focus on the best possible curriculum to prepare future workers. This is another example where doing what’s right and doing what’s right for business are in perfect harmony.”
