Team Motto: To develop ourselves while lifting our communities.
Enactus in one word: Development
Active project: 3
The team’s biggest challenge from this year: Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the team had to put some of their plans on hold until the lockdown eased.
The team’s proudest moment of the year: It was when they advanced to stage 2 of the 2019-2020 Unilever Enactus Plastic Waste & Packaging Challenge, and selected to compete in the very first Virtual National Competition.
