Microsoft Gulf has generously donated licenses expected to impact over 250 women and children for its various products to the EWA’A Shelters for Women and Children through Injazat Data Systems as part of its ongoing Software Donation Program to NGOs.
Injazat Data Systems seized on its long-standing affiliation with Microsoft to suggest the idea of giving out licenses to help out the charitable organization, which the latter willingly acceded to. Both IT companies are known for their impactful corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives across the country.
EWA’A is a non-profit organization providing assistance and care for women and children victims of human trafficking. The generous contribution will help over 100 EWA’A employees enhance their digital literacy and efficiency and thus lead to better management of the non-profit’s three shelters across the UAE.
“EWA’A Shelters needs all the support it can get to continue its mission of bringing hope to vulnerable members of society. The license donations we were able to request from Microsoft will go a long way in enabling the Shelter’s employees to harness technology to broaden the reach and efficiency of their organization. Injazat will continue to back EWA’A’s efforts to improve its work efficiency, sustainability, and confidentiality of information through the help of our IT expertise and partnerships,”
The EWA’A team comprises wardens, social workers and multi-lingual employees who can speak Arabic, English, Russian, Urdu, Filipino and Bengali. They work in shifts to provide 24/7 assistance to victims or report their issues to the police. The main Shelter in Abu Dhabi can accommodate over 60 women and children at a time; there are two additional centers in Ras Al Khaimah and Sharjah, with plans to open up more centers in the future.
