The Champion Team from United Kingdom – the University of Southampton Enactus Team presented three community outreach projects. The team coached local women in Kenya to make sanitization towels from recycled materials which provided new job opportunities and solved the problem of the shortage of sanitation towels for women in the target villages. The team also helped residents in a number of villages in Kenya to set up school lavatories made from recyled materials. The team taught the villagers how to build the lavatories and manage them. Additionally, the team educated the community people to produce soap bars made with plentiful avocadoes and bananas. The result of these projects led the people in a number of Kenyan communities to enjoy greater economic opportunities and to also better understand some key health and sanitization issues. 



The team from United States - Brigham Young University (Hawaii Campus) was awarded the First Runner-Up Prize of the 2015 Enactus World Cup. The team empowered over 50 women in Cote d"Ivoire to create small businesses with micro-finance support and financial literacy training. Moreover, the team helped 40 Cocoa farmers to improve their production and also provided them with education for them to raise bees which could ecologically pollinate their plants, The team also built a school to improve the education of cocoa farmers’ children which kept the children in school instead of working in cocoa farms.
