Our proudest moment of the past year:
“We believe that it was the willpower to improve, not only in the competition but in the effective progress of our communities, it showed how much our team is united and that together we do not measure effort to generate impact. Making our team bi national champion of Enactus Brazil.”

Biggest challenge from the past year:
“It was that we needed to move many partnerships to continue our work, and in a small city was difficult, but I think our differential is that we tell progress stories, effective growth of people, today they are more educated and this reflects on the quality of life of all our beneficiaries.”

Team described in one word:
Overcoming.

Four years ago, Kevin met with regional program managers at his university and knew Enactus was the right organization for him. “I was so enchanted with the sea of possibilities. I had never seen something so real that changed people’s lives and that has impacted my life,” says Kevin. “Enactus has taught me to be a better human being.” Kevin says that even though his team comes across challenges, they can never give up. This year, Kevin hopes to bring the best of Brazil with him for his second Enactus World Cup.
