Three Enactus IÉSEG Lille projects win Enactus Hauts-de-France “Coup de Pouce” awards
An international organization present in 33 countries, Enactus aims to support student entrepreneurial projects with a positive social and environmental impact. The Enactus office on the IÉSEG campus in Lille is made up of a dozen students who work every day to address these issues and serve causes that are close to their hearts. The Enactus network, which is present throughout the world, helps students carry out their entrepreneurial projects by providing financial support and accompanying them through workshops, seminars, meetings, etc.
In November 2022, Enactus Hauts-de-France launched a call for projects to win “Coup de Pouce” prizes of between €1,000 and €3,000.
Enactus IÉSEG Lille chose to present three projects:
SANCO: this project allows immigrants to better integrate into society through cooking workshops. About ten people take part in the workshops which take place every Wednesday, led by members of the association. These are moments of sharing and emotions mixing several cultures. These events are realized in partnership with the association Singa which proposes workshops for all with the objective of promoting social integration.
HEROCAP: this project allows people with motor disabilities to practice handisport by offering wheelchair basketball classes. The workshop is run every Wednesday by a professional. In the near future, HEROCAP will be extended to several Institutes of Motor Education to reach a larger number of people with disabilities. HEROCAP won a “Coup de Pouce” prize worth €3,000 thanks to partners Goodeed and Lipton Ice Tea, as well as €1,000 from the Harmonie Mutuelle Foundation.
FRIP’HELP : this project allows students of the Catholic University of Lille to sell their clothes or to buy them from other students. This system contributes to the development of the circular economy between students. FRIP’HELP also won the “Coup de Pouce” prize worth €1,000 thanks to partners Goodeed and Lipton Ice Tea.
Through these three impact projects, Enactus IÉSEG LILLE is perfectly aligned with the Vision of IÉSEG, which advocates diversity and inclusion. By developing such projects, today’s students learn to build a better future for tomorrow.
