Video: Watch how two students created change for some people in Uganda

May. 8, 2009, 2:03 PM

Two Vanderbilt students took their dream for social change well beyond the Vanderbilt campus, impacting the lives of people in Uganda in an amazing way.

When Human and Organizational Development students Henry Manice and Wil Keenan were just freshmen, they created an online business to aid and empower families in Uganda. The company, called Enjuba, sold handmade goods created by artisans in the war-torn African country. But Enjuba ended up impacting Wil and Henry and the Ugandan artisans far more than any of them imagined.
