Enactus Stenden South Africa

About us

Enactus Stenden South Africa is a student organisation of the Stenden University in Port Alfred (Eastern Cape) in South Africa. It aims to support local people, projects and small businesses through entrepreneurial action and business approaches. Enactus SSA incorportes the principle of "capacity building" - offering help for self-help.

The team is involved in various initiatives, such as:

1. Phakama high school in Alexandria, 50km from Port Alfred, where they are working with youths to develop their talent and also register their business of events and entertainment.

2. Robert Veentra Entrepreneurship Centre, students support the facilitator of the 6-week Basic Computer Training Course that teaches the participants programs such as Microsoft Word, Office and Powerpoint to equip participants with needed skills for the job market.

3. Charity work for schools in and around Port Alfred. The students aim to plant over 30 trees at Nomzamo high school and also paint Phakama high school in Alexandria.

Enactus SSA is part of the Enactus organisation, which was established in 1975 in the USA. 37 different national subsidiaries work as independent organisations, but are part of the international Enactus network. Thus, Enactus SSA is responsible for their own project developments and for finding their own ways of funding.

Students learn along the way as they have to think strategically, work in a team, implement and develop project ideas and work with different stakeholders. Most important perhaps, they learn that they can make a difference in the lives of others, including the people in their local communities such as Port Alfred/Ndlambe.
