Enactus Nottingham team's prize-winning Aquor water technology
Enactus Nottingham were crowned UK national champions in 2016 for their work to establish sustainable, not-for-profit, social enterprises both at home and in a rural town in Cameroon.
Enactus Nottingham's Aquor Water Technology enterprise uses their own filter design to provide clean water to thousands of people in Bambui, a town of 30,000 in northwest Cameroon.
The majority of families in Bambui use contaminated river or lake water as their primary source, which causes serious illnesses in the community.
Enactus are working with the community to set up water kiosks that incorporate biosand filtration technology to purify water in an affordable way.
In September 2016, the Nottingham team will go on to represent Enactus UK in the Enactus World Cup in Toronto, competing against 35 other countries.
Enactus Nottingham director, Andy Stride, studied a BSc Management at Nottingham University Business School and said: "Through the course and the School's support, I have been able to start up my own company using the knowledge from many different modules."
