Since its inception in 2017, Enactus ARSD has worked towards uplifting the underprivileged and guiding them towards self-reliance through entrepreneurial action and empowerment. It was formed by a group of 5 students who were passionate to become social entrepreneurs with a vision and a mission to bring about a change and do their bit for the planet and its people. We, at Enactus ARSD, continue to carry that vision forward.
Our society has been growing ever since with highly motivated and determined students. Today, our team has dedicated future leaders who are focused on becoming better human beings. Through our projects, we aim to share this spirit of entrepreneurship with the world, tackle issues that matter and achieve UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
With little steps, we have earned recognition not only within our nation’s boundaries but also at an international level. Even times as harsh and depressing as the pandemic couldn’t hold our feet back from making an impact. We are also very proud to be collaborating with other Enactus societies so that together we all join hands and unleash the benevolence we have within to impact the human race for the better so that #weallwin.

Enactus ARSD, which was once a mere thought, has become a prominent society of the College over the years. Since its inception, the Society has made enormous strides. Driven by the idea to engineer social change through entrepreneurship, it has indeed helped underprivileged communities become self-sufficient. The members of the Society not only provide viable business ideas to the needy, but also help them gain the necessary skills to achieve their objectives. Social Entrepreneurship, which is the foundation of Enactus, has become an integral part of the business world, involving as it does both the welfare of the society along with economic factors of running a business. The team has effectively achieved this goal by allowing partner NGOs to take over completely and manage businesses they were initially part owners of.
Enactus ARSD aims to pursue the 17 Sustainable Development Goals envisioned by the United Nations, spreading awareness as well as aiding the growth of environmentally and socially responsible citizens. The creative projects or entrepreneurial ideas, collaborations with various NGOs, as well as the events organized by the Society ensure the fulfillment of these goals. Additionally, by inculcating in students qualities such as leadership, teamwork, analytical skills as well as creative thinking, the Society also promotes the holistic development of stakeholders—the philosophical keystone of the College. I wish the very best to the team for their future endeavors, and place my confidence in their efforts and will to take the College and the Society to greater heights.

Convenor, Enactus ARSD
Enactus is a team of young visionaries who believe that a sense of empathy, a spirit of empowerment and resultant ecstasy can work wonders in creating a better world. Since its inception in 2017, Enactus ARSD has worked tirelessly towards uplifting the underprivileged sections of the society and guiding them towards dignity through entrepreneurial enrichment. With 4 projects under its wings currently, undeterred focus on SDGs and having hosted, participated and chaired in many competitions and events, at national and international levels, the progress and growth of Enactus ARSD has been phenomenal making it one of the fastest growing Enactus societies in Delhi NCR. We are committed to our beneficiaries to continually grow and make a greater impact in the years to come.
As the Convener of the society, I take immense pride in leading a team of highly motivated future leaders fully dedicated to bring about positive and sustainable changes to the lives of the lesser privileged sections of the society be they homeless, jobless or destitute. These endeavours have also helped the students in polishing their personalities to the best along with becoming better and sensitized humans.
We truly believe in creating an opportunity instead of waiting for one. Hence, we recently launched our website in the auspicious presence of the Chairman Sir, the Treasurer Sir and the Principal Sir. The Enactus ARSD Website has provided a significant impetus to our efforts to upgrade, upscale, integrate and intensify our operations.
To sum it all, I would like to quote these lines by an anonymous poet to highlight Enactus ARSD’s zeal and commitment towards creating a better version of itself with its every little step:
“कुछ ज्यादा ख्वाहिशें नहीं ए ज़िन्दगी तुझसे, बस मेरा अगला कदम पिछले से बेहतरीन हो!!”
Hopeful of a making this world a better place to live.
In the formative year of Enactus India ARSD Chapter, I inadvertently voted for "Empathy. Empowerment. Ecstasy." be our motto. However, it was many empathy-induced welfare projects later that I realized, the Enactus Family is often associated with and held together by, the feeling of ecstasy - through the empowerment of marginalized yet meticulously skilled people, through the gratification from working hard to make a difference, through the motivation to wield our resources, opportunities and privilege that culminates to a positive impact on the society. Serving as the President of this society has been an enriching, transformative experience.
