Congratulations to Enactus Warwick society on their recent success at the Nationals Competition for Enactus, a global hub of ambition and entreneurship which spans 37 countries and 72,000 students seeking to change the world for the better!
Enactus Warwick tackles some of the most pressing needs in our society through social enterprises and consulting on issues ranging from food waste reduction to empowering refugees and tackling menstrual health issues in Africa. 10,000 lives have been improved through the work they have done in recent years, which was recently recognised at the Nationals Competition 2019 where universities across the country compete in front of over 100 judges from Amazon, EY, Asda, HSBC, Unilever and many more.
Reaching the finals for the first time in their history, their entry showcased 20 projects including the society's largest social enterprise, The Gateway. With 590 Syrian refugees in Coventry alone, The Gateway tackles the stigma and inequality surrounding some of the most vulnerable people in our society. Enactus Warwick help to transform lives through weekly workshops to build language, technology and interview skills, providing participants with mentorship to build their confidence in an unknown, foreign land. They also work with asylum seekers from across the globe, hearing inspirational stories of power and courage which pushes them to succeed in the mission of integrating refugees into society.
