Sustainable Empowerment for Women (SEW)

Economics, politics and international relations student Rosa Pellicer from the Enactus Society at Royal Holloway (University of London) won the ‘Outstanding Contribution Award’ for founding and leading a project in Anantapur in India, called Sustainable Empowerment for Women (S.E.W.).

What did S.E.W. team members do to win the award?  The team taught a community of forty impoverished women how to produce and sell incense sticks, including all stages of business from market research and product development, to production and sales.

Now that is entrepreneurship education at its best.  Congratulations to Rosa and her team for such great work!

Read the interview conducted by Royal Holloway with Rosa here.

Excerpt:

What inspired you to set up a project for women in India?

“… I witnessed the harsh realities that many women in India face. Indeed, violence and disrespect was a recurring theme, especially within poor and rural communities. This inspired me to act. I looked to find a local NGO that would help transform my vision into a reality. I’ve always been very proactive, and believe that in order to change something, you must work to make it happen.”
