Puerto Rico Annual  Report  2012-­‐2013

A message  from                                      our  Chairperson    

Thinking about  the  beginnings  of  this  organization  in  Puerto   Rico  and,  seeing,  its  development  and  rapid  growth  today,  makes   positive   proof   that   the   call   to   serve   and   the   application   of   knowledge,   are   the   key   elements   in   building   a   better   country.     Enactus   invites   creativity,   determination,   courage   and   action   to   work   together.   This   invitation   comes   at   a   difficult   time   with   challenges   and   obstacles   that   are   only   exceeded   by   the   fearless   efforts  of  our  students  and  faculty. efforts  of  our  students  and  facult     We  as  entrepreneurs,  see  in  this  organization  the  best  tool   for  progress  and  social  justice  with  an  entrepreneurial  vision  that   goes  beyond  the  traditional  schemes.  It  is  also  a  perpetual  source   of   development   of   the   individual,   their   environment   and   their   most   cherished   values;   to   build   a   sustainable   future.     Our   students,  guided  by  their  faculty,  have  thrived  in  the  past  years  to   raise   new   possibilities   for   hundreds   of   individuals   and   families   whose  future  was  uncertain.       It  would  be  unsubstantial  to  say  that  this  is  just  what  we  do.   We  have  also  managed  to  raise  the  name  of  our  Island  held  high.     The  result  of  the  students,  faculty  and  communities’  efforts  had   raised  globally  the  economic,  social  and  environmental  impact  in   our  Puerto  Rico.  Enactus  Puerto  Rico,  with  only  seven  years  in  the   organization,   have   positioned   Puerto   Rico   among   the   finalists;  

competing with  more  than  30  countries.    Last  year,  our  Champion   Team,   returned   to   share   the   world   stage   with   countries   like   Germany,   Britain   and   Nigeria   at   the   final   round   of   competition.   There,  before  the  world,  they  gave  voice  to  those  less  fortunate   and  the  world  shuddered.     Thanks   to   the   continuous   support   of   leading   businesses,   today  Enactus  in  Puerto  Rico  has  14  universities  and  more  than  30   business  projects  that  continuously  inject  millions  of  dollars  into   the  economy.     I  hope  you  can  see,  in  this  annual  report,  what  we  all  have   seen;   Enactus   is   passion,   dedication,   commitment,   knowledge   and  opportunity.  It  is  the  best  investment  in  the  development  of   the  future  leaders  of  our  country  and  a  graceful  way  out  for  those   in  need.    Because  another  future  is  possible;  we  don’t  talk;  we  act.

Patricia Lugo Enactus  UPR-­‐Mayaguez  Alumni “My  experience  with  Enactus  has  been   rewarding,  as  a  team  we  were  passionate  and   unique  in  the  strategic  development  of  our   projects  and  communities.  Without  doubts,   Enactus  has  been  a  cornerstone  in  my  personal   and  professional  growth.”

Our Alumni   “Enactus,  former  SIFE,  has  been  a   life-­‐changing  experience  for  me.  It  gave   me  the  professionalism  and  the   sensibility  to  work  towards  the  wellness   of  the  communities.  Enactus   challenged  me  to  become  a  better   human  being.  Enactus  will  be  a   baggage  that  I  will  keep  close  to  my   baggage  that  I  will   heart  for  all  the  experience  that  I   learned  from  this  amazing  journey.”

i Experience

Lyssette Vázquez Enactus  UPR-­‐Bayamon  Alumni

I’m very  grateful  of  my  experience  in   Enactus,  because  I  learned  not  to  focus  on   a  problem,  but  rather  on  a  solution.  I   helped  people  learn  things  that  otherwise   they  wouldn’t  have  been  able  to  learn  on   their  own.    Now  that  I  reflect  about  my   experience  in  Enactus  I  can  say  that  the   most  important  thing  that  I  discovered  is   that  you  will  never  find  happiness  unless   you  are  doing  what  you  love.
