Enactus VIPS is an entrepreneurial organisation of Vivekananda Institute of Professional Studies. Its objective is to give the students a platform to exercise and develop their business skills while accomplishing their underlying motive of helping the society/community in innovative, efficient, and sustainable ways which promote growth.
When established in 2019, Enactus VIPS was pretty adamant on their dedication towards the community but as things were coming into shape, 2020 and Covid-19 happened and all dreams and hopes were shattered, especially for the underprivileged communities associated with us.
In 2021, As we were trying to recollect our strength and grow against the odds, The hit was more severe than the last and a breaking point for the families and communities we were trying to help. Covid-19 took away their jobs, means of livelihood and more importantly, their smiles because of all the hardships.
At Enactus, Vivekananda Institute of Professional Studies, We have been helping an underprivileged community of female tailors/sewing community under our Project:’Tahsin’ where they make products showing their ‘कारीगरी’. However, The resurgence of the pandemic has put a great stress on them both financially as well mentally and is leading them towards the path of even more struggle. All the donations we receive will be used to revive their means of livelihood and to acquire materials for their own establishment as well. This is what we aim to achieve from the fundraiser.
About Project Tahsin:
Revolving around the idea of sustainability and reversing the idea of fast fashion and how it takes a toll on the environment. Enactus VIPS structured the idea to help both the cause of sustainability and to ensure that marginalised communities can help to evolve the same. To help sustain both fashion and the lives of the sewing community that is helping our project come to life, Enactus VIPS has partnered with ‘Prabhaav: Foundation’; A NGO. At Prabhaav, the community associated helps in making sustainable clothing products with the help of ‘Katran’ (leftover fabric). From the material to the logistics, It is all managed by Enactus VIPS, whilst taking care of Marketing & Sales as well. The returns however, are given back to the members to help them keep afloat in the testing times.
Given the current scenario and the sheer helplessness it has caused, We would like to raise some funds for the community as well to help them cope up with the financial stress this has put upon them which might strain them psychologically as well. In any case, we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking out time to help our cause.
