In Enactus we believe that the power of business can solve the world's toughest social and environmental problems.
We are a community of student, academic and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to transform lives and shape a better, more sustainable world.
We live by the philosophy of ‘feed a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach him how to fish and he will eat for a lifetime’ and implement it throughout our social enterprises.
Enactus Lancaster will be running 6 projects this year - Purifiq, Recyclone, Refillar, Girls Get Diagnosed, Irida and South Korea Project.
Recyclone: Development of a wind-turbine using recycled barrel that generates electricity. Partnered with Lancaster University Ghana.
Girls Get Diagnosed: Development of an online forum to improve the diagnosis of autism among girls who are four times less likely to be diagnosed.
Purifiq: Development of a "tooth tab" that melts in the mouth on contact with water and transforms into a toothpaste, offering their clients a quick alternative to polluting traditions of toothpaste tubes.
Refillar: Development of reusable food boxes with the right proportions to spread awareness about practical ways to reduce food waste produced at homes through cooking.
Irida: Development of a website where people can promote their skills and create a learning forum. We are currently also working on developing a coaching, mentoring and leadership part to this.
South Korea Project: Aiming to improve the quality of life for the elderly population living in poverty in South Korea, through the provision and education of technology usage.
