Dogs in Swaziland.pngDon’t miss Saswato Das’s account of his SAP Social Sabbatical in Pretoria, South Africa, where a team of 11 SAP colleagues are bringing their expertise to Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs). “We will learn from them and, hopefully, contribute something in return,” writes Saswato.

 

Saswato is working with the NGO Solutions for People with Disabilities. You can read about the challenges of being disabled in South Africa, as well as the dignity of labor that comes with having a meaningful job that such an organization can provide.

 

“We want to achieve, we want to help ourselves and survive. We want to get more skills.”

 

Read how SAP volunteers traveled to the village of Ndlangeni to visit children who have been orphaned by AIDS. “Even though it was not far, it took us a good while to get to the village that was our destination ... For those of us who went to Swaziland, it opened a window to the real scourge of AIDS in an oft-forgotten part of the world.”

 

In his Pretoria Diary, Saswato chronicles this social sabbatical. You’ll find insights, photos, and facts that you didn’t know about the stray dogs of Swaziland.
