Who are we?
Enactus is a worldwide programme run by university students who strive to make this world a better place through entrepreneurial action. We work with the underpriviledged within our local communites and empower them through our projects in an economically, enviornmentally and socially sustainable way.
At Enactus, we believe that if students work together and unleash their full potential, they can certainly change the world. That's why we go with the motto 'if you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day but if you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime'. Our volunteer programmes and projects revolve around students transforming the lives of others by transfering their skills and knowledge to help others, all of which contribute to changing their lives in the longer run.

What do we do?
At Enactus, we run various projects that are making a difference in the lives of others every single day. These projects are designed and managed by students just like you from the University of Hertfordshire and are changing the lives of people from Hatfield to beyond. Some of our projects include:
Glasscycle: A project that upcycles used alcohol bottles from the university campus and converts them into candles, drinking glasses and vases. The project employs homeless people to run its day to day operation, thus allowing these individually not only a source of employment but a work experience to add on their CV as well.
Helping Hands: Helping domestically abused victims in Kenya become more financially independent through creating and selling traditional African jewlery in the UK.
Project Aloud!: A programme which helps young individuals suffering from self-esteem issues to become more confident through the power of radio.
Modushelter: Designing a safe and portable shelter made with plastic bottles for refugees in Calais.
Comets Consultancy: Working alongside various charities and small businesses by providing them consultancy services on how they could become more enterprising in their actions.
Motiv-8: Assisting students in primary and secondary schools suffering from social anxiety to become more confident through a mentoring scheme.
....and there are many more. Plus, the best part about Enactus is that you can start up your own volunteer project or social enterprise as well! Our dedicated team of experts will provide you guidance on how to go about with it and soon you'll be on the road to success.
