Impacting the lives of underprivileged sections of society by setting up sustainable businesses for them
Inspiring students to bring about a positive change in the society through entrepreneurial action
Enactus is an international non-profit organization that provides students with a platform to create community development projects, which put people’s own ingenuity and talents at the center of improving their livelihoods. At Enactus – IMT Ghaziabad, we provide a means to sustainable income for a section of women in rural areas of Ghaziabad. We are working in collaboration with an NGO based out of Ghaziabad – Gram Niyojan Kendra.
We currently have two projects:
Umeed ki Udaan: This project was started 2 years ago (2014). It involves collecting waste papers from the IMT campus and recycling them. The recycled paper is then made into notebooks by the women and these notebooks are finally sold to students in the college. The profit from this operation goes to the women working on it.
Project Roshni: This project was started in 2015. It involves sourcing of raw materials for bean bags. These raw materials are then provided to the women who stitch them into bean bags. These bags are then sold to students in college.
