IMT Enactus raised funds through revenue from a number of events to empower the impoverished and the needy in securing a sustainable lifestyle and a source of income for themselves.
Following are the initiatives taken up by Enactus IMT
Project Mithaas 2.0: Last year, due to COVID, many small businesses, especially the street vendors lost their businesses. Enactus IMT saw an opportunity to help some of these local vendors and started “Mithaas, a celebration of sweetness delivered to you at your doorstep”, where we manufactured home made choclates and sold them during Diwali. The profits where shared to vendors to restore their businesses. This year, we came up with Mithaas 2.0 to change lives of some more people
Project Kaagaz Katha: Enactus IMT did the technology transfer to self-help groups to craft handicrafts from newspapers as part of this project. This project provided sustainable income for 25 women in the marginalized areas by connecting them with retailers.
Project Aashna: As part of Project Aashna, members of a self-help group were guided towards crafting environment-friendly cloth bags. These bags were sold to retailers and pharmacies, which provided the members with a sustainable income and protected the environment.
Project Saathi: This project was aimed to help women of self-help groups by promoting hand-knitted woolen items such as sweaters, mufflers, gloves, and socks woven by them. These products were made by women in Raispur and were sold in and around the campus.
