ENACTUS is an international organisation dedicated to inspiring students to improve the world through entrepreneurial action. The ENACTUS experience transforms both the lives of the people the projects serve, and in turn, the lives of ENACTUS students as they develop into more effective, values-driven leaders.
Though the competition, eWorld Technology was offered a space at the Innovation Hub in Kwaluseni to incubate their idea. In 2015, eFarm Traders T/A eWorld technology was selected to represent Swaziland in Durban at the Unlocking Agri Business Opportunities For Youth in Southern Africa Hackathon, which awards individuals for coming up with agricultural solutions for the Southern African region.
When asked about his experience at Enactus one of the partners Mr Scelo Ndlandla said that “at ENACTUS I was able to learn to be patient, to embrace diversity, to trust a team and work as a team.” He said before ENACTUS he preferred to work independently, but ENACTUS helped him learn to work with others towards achieving a common goal. He said he was also inspired to give back to others, and he is currently working on a project in his community of Ntondozi near Bushfire to promote tourism through the development of a cultural village. “Business has helped me to speak up for myself and voice out my opinions, and to believe that I can make a difference wherever I am with whatever resources I have,”
