Empowering people through social entrepreneurship
ENACTUS SUSSEX AT A GLANCE.
Enactus Sussex aims to tackle various social and environmental issues in a sustainable way using good business practice.
Students who take entrepreneurial action for others create a better world for us all. You can become one of them by joining Enactus Sussex.
Aligning Profit with Purpose
At Enactus Sussex we have four main projects running.
Revive is a social enterprise that aims to primarily tackle two issues: the global disparity in access to quality education and tech waste. We tackle these two issues by downloading educational software onto old laptops and sending them out to schools in need around the world in a carbon-leveraged way. So far, Revive has made a positive and direct impact on the lives of over 400 students.
Revive isn't just a project for the tech-savvy; we need people that will help market it, reach out to potential donors, and handle the logistics of delivering the laptops to schools as well! There is a place for everyone in Revive. Are you ready to help improve the education that children across the globe receive?
Jifunza’ is the Kiswahili word for ‘Learn’. The Jifunza project is an international entrepreneurship initiative teaching social enterprise skills to English and Kenyan students, teaching waste management, climate change and other environmental issues affecting their future.
We aim to create a bridge of cultural understanding and social equality between the UK and Africa. We want to set up a sustainable student-run social enterprise club in Brighton and Kenyan schools.
Students who join the club will take part in workshops with the Jifunza team, who will be supported by our Enactus University Advisor.
The commercial project aims to raise funding for our other projects, through various business ventures which aim to be sustainable in practice, but with a primary motive of making a profit.
