Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Enactus Exeter is a student-led society focused on social enterprise and using entrepreneurship in order to improve society and sustainability all over the world. We currently have 3 projects being run:
- BioSmart: this projects involved the designing and building of special furnaces that burn food-waste to produce Biochar, a nutrient rich fuel for growing plants and food. Currently, this project is being advanced in Kenya, where we are helping women employ themselves by recycling and growing food with these furnaces.
- Lighthouse: this project aims to empower homeless people locally by providing training/mentoring and skills that can be used to run a social enterprise and make them more employable. By getting homeless people into work, we aim to remove the stigma associated with being homeless and through education and mentoring, allow the homeless to feel a part of community once again.
- Recyclist: the project aims to use the Deliveroo cyclist network to redistribute excess food from supermarkets and restaurants to charities so it doesn't go to waste. An app to enable this is currently under development.
We are hoping to add projects to this portfolio this coming year.
Kealan and Chantal will be cycling from London to Paris in 48 hours this year to help raise money for Enactus Exeter. Please donate to give us some motivation for those 250 kilometres! We are so grateful for every contribution, big or small! <3
