Review: The CHANGEMAKERS Story


Our first CHANGEMAKERS project took place from February to May 2021 in collaboration with SAP, the largest software group in Europe.

You can find videos about Round 1.0, including information about the refugee participants, coaches, and the companies involved.


In the second round of CHANGEMAKERS, which took place from September to December 2021, we had a strong media campaign. We were joined by Cawa Younosi, Head of Human Resources at SAP Germany, and Zarah Bruhn, CEO of socialbee. Additionally, four participants, Juan, Qasem, Neda and Abdoulfatah shared their life stories. Through their stories, they demonstrated that their backgrounds are more than just their journey as refugees, but also highlight their many successes and strengths.



In our third CHANGEMAKERS round, we provided career opportunities in IT to even more people, expanding to the whole DACH region. As a result, in 2022, people with a refugee or migration background had the chance to apply for positions and secure employment with partner companies not just in Germany but also in Austria and Switzerland.


For the fourth round of CHANGEMAKERS, we will once again use a powerful media campaign to spread the word about this amazing program and inspire other companies to join in.

Be excited for the Round 4.0 campaign!


These companies took part!

The world leader from Walldorf

Without our training partner SAP, the IT qualification program CHANGEMAKERS would not exist. The software group comes from southern Germany and is one of the five largest software companies in the world.

Alongside SAP, several renowned IT companies have participated in previous CHANGEMAKERS rounds aave worked with socialbee to create a positive impact on the future of refugee participants.

Many CHANGEMAKERS graduates have received permanent job offers and have seamlessly integrated into consultant roles within the teams of program partners.
