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
I had my first interface with Enactus in the year 2017 when this organization was carrying a niche for itself across various educational institutions. Back then, I was flabbergasted to be approached by a group of just 5 students who were bubbling with the zeal of becoming budding entrepreneurs with a vision and mission so great
to bring about a change in the lives of the underprivileged and stone broken that we, together; gave birth to Enactus ARSD. Ever since, with every passing day the team worked with sheer diligence and came forward with ideas so bright that touched many lives which molded our society in one of the most finest ones in DU. Countless sleepless nights, churning thoughts and converting them into concrete projects is what gave the team unbreakable pillars to do more and more.
As the Convener of this prestigious society, I take immense pride to be leading a team of future leaders dedicated so well towards polishing their personalities to the best along with becoming better humans that this world has been needing for decades now. The team aims for the limitless and I hope it continues to grow and make a greater impact in the years to come.
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.
