WALLDORF, Germany, June 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  SAP NEWSBYTE -- In line with its ongoing commitment to improving the lives of underserved children in the communities in which it operates, SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) announced today a new partnership with Inter Campus, the corporate social responsibility program developed by F.C. Internazionale Milano. The initiative uses the international game of football as an educational tool to restore the right to play to needy children worldwide.

"As a global leader in information technology, SAP recognizes and embraces our commitment to the communities in which we work and we're extremely proud to support Inter Campus Brasil in this effort to improve the lives of underserved children," said Gustavo Amorim, marketing vice-president,  SAP Latin America. "With the world's attention focused on Brazil this summer, we aim to work with Inter Campus to create a level playing field for these amazing kids."

As the first of many special initiatives, SAP and Inter Campus Brasil will host an event during the 2014 World Cup in one of the favelas in Rio de Janeiro in order to highlight the extraordinary work of the organization. Hosted by an Inter player, the event will include a coaching session for the children and the presentation of an Inter shirt to every child.

Since 1997, Inter Campus has implemented a flexible and long-term social and cooperation program in 29 countries.  A dedicated task force of managers and coaches from Inter Campus coordinate the ongoing activities at the various centers around the world where the focus is not only on teaching the skills of "the beautiful game", but also on providing valuable educational and recreational projects for over 10,000 children from impoverished communities.  The coaches work closely with two hundred locally-selected instructors and countless volunteers that work in the countries which are officially part of the Inter Campus Worldwide circuit.
