SAP School Sponsorship Program Brings Joy to Kids and Youths

28 November 2015, SAP Malaysia School Sponsorship Program at Mydin USJ

Taking 90 children from poor families shopping — that was how the staff of a multinational software corporation spent their weekend.

Their intention was to ensure that the children had everything they had to be ready for school next year. There was joy and hopefulness on the faces of the children as the 14 SAP Malaysia employees accompanied them to shop for school uniforms, bags and stationery at Mydin in USJ Subang Jaya last Saturday. The SAP workers were joined by their family members and 35 staff from its partner company, NTT Data.

They also taught the children how to work within a budget, important tools they will need later in life. Fully-funded by SAP Malaysia, a total of RM 36,000 was allocated for the programme.


SAP Malaysia managing director Terrence Yong said the company had long placed importance on education, especially of poor children. “Through education we can help the country and people on so many levels. “We want to help narrow the gap that exists between the private sector and charitable organisations such as Hope Worldwide Malaysia,” said Yong.

The families of the children were recipients of welfare aid from Hope, a charitable organisation with extensive knowledge of Sentul and the needs of the poor there.
Hope has been running a free clinic there, giving free treatment and medicines to children from underprivileged families since 2000.


“It is gratifying that these needy children have the support of  the community through caring companies such as SAP Malaysia and Mydin,” said Hope worldwide (Malaysia) executive director Katy Lee.

Mydin co-sponsored the corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative by offering the distributor price for the purchases and sponsoring food for the kids and their parents.

“Money can be raised, even if sometimes with difficulty, but the time they spend with the children today is priceless.”

She added that it had always been important to convince the parents of the need for their children to remain in school.

“It took time for them to understand that with education, their children could have better lives,” Lee said.

For more than 10 years, volunteers have taught and read to children from slums in Sentul, thanks to a reading programme started by Hope.

Madam Jeya is a single mother who raised up three children - Yogavarthine (eldest daughter), Dineshwaran and Maatheeswaran all by herself. Through life is challenging for here, but her self-motivated spirit by not stopping herself to learn new things is very inspiring.


Mentored by the volunteers from HELP University, each student was given 1 hour to do online research for the title they chose. Both volunteer and student together look for information and photos for their topic.

While the students and volunteers were working on their projects, the production team kicks start with their documentation by interviewing the Managing Director of SAP Malaysia, Mr. Terrence Yong and the Program Manager of HOPE worldwide Malaysia, Mr. Caesar Teh.

Mizuho Volunteer Day with 80 volunteers

17 October 2015 Mizuho Bank's "Mizuho Volunteer Day" (MVD 2015)

Total 80 volunteers which is probably the largest group of volunteers HOPE worldwide Malaysia had thus far, participating in 4 community programs - Food Distribution Program, MY Reading Program, Creative Art Program and visiting to the beneficial families' houses.

The Home Visit Program was the highlight of the day as we we had 43 volunteers (out of 80 volunteers) signed up, visited 24 families within 2 hours. The volunteers were all guided by 8 facilitators to visit the families i different housing areas. During the home visit, the volunteers from Mizuho Bank were warmly greeted and welcomed by the families. Each family had their life story to tell which left so much inspiration and impact toward the volunteers. We brought KFC Combo meal and groceries to each family.

We had the second group of volunteers who worked at the Sentul Free Clinic for the Food Distribution Program, which reached out to estimate 80 families, who were here to collect the groceries. Thanks to all fellow volunteers who compassionately helping some of the families to carry their groceries to the bus stop to take the public transport home.

We also had a minimal number of volunteers who stayed back at the centre to be Teachers of the Day in the MY Reading Program and Creative Art Program.







By the end of the MVD, we had the volunteers who did the home visit to share their experiences and the inspirations they gained.

It was indeed an inspiring time as we heard so many volunteers shared about how much they feel for the living condition of low income group families. Some of the famlies, though they didn't have a lot, but they offered their hospitality to thank the volunteers who came to help them. One of the families even do not have mattresses that they have to sleep on the floor. The volunteers from Mizuho who visited the family decided to pool their donations together to buy mattresses for this family. There was an elderly woman from one of the families, who kissed a young volunteer's hands as she expressed her gratitude.



We are indeed very grateful and honored to have hosted the Mizuho Volunteer Day (MVD) at HOPE worldwide Malaysia. We look forward to have more working opportunities to create greater social impact in the future!
