American CyberSystems and the Sardanas Adopt YWCA’s TGI Tech Program

September 2006
American CyberSystems and the Sardanas Adopt YWCA’s TGI Tech Program

In a unique and celebratory fashion, Raj Sardana has created history. For the first time since the inception of the YWCA of Greater Atlanta back in 1902, Raj, along with his family and his employees at American CyberSystems (ACS), have adopted the youth empowerment initiative created by the YWCA of Greater Atlanta. It's called the Teen Girls in Technology (TGI Tech) Program. Raj and Nita Sardana celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary on August 16th by honoring a tradition set by Raj's father in India – giving back to celebrate the blessings of life. The TGI Tech Adoption Gala was attended by over 200 corporate executives, educators and community champions. Ms. Becky Blalock, senior vice president and chief information officer of Southern Company, facilitated the adoption ceremony.

The Sardanas commemorated their special day by donating $50,000 to the YWCA for the purchase of computers, equipment and supplies for the day-to-day operation of the program, along with scholarships for the TGI Tech participants. Additionally, the company employees will serve as mentors and provide job-shadowing opportunities to the students.
