Our local community project delivered in partnership with Enactus Poland has reached over 1,000 beneficiaries!

on 6 Mar 2023

We’re proud to announce that our Futuremakers programme delivered in partnership with Enactus Poland has now supported over 1,000 beneficiaries in Poland.

The project launched in March 2021 with funding from the Standard Chartered Foundation to support young Poles, aged 18-25, who had been economically impacted by the global Covid-19 pandemic. A total of 1,000 young people has been reached since the project’s inception with 87 having received intensive leadership and entrepreneurial skills training and mentorship.

All the initiatives have been supported by the Standard Chartered team in Poland as part of the employee volunteering programme. Many employees have been involved by sharing their skills and expertise through mentorship, participation in training sessions, joining judging panels at the Enactus national competitions as well as the “Bright Your Future” competition for local community projects.

Supporting disadvantaged young people has always been close to my heart. I’m extremely proud of everything we’ve achieved together through our engagement in this project. I’d like to thank everyone for the dedication they have shown, while sharing time and knowledge with young adults, helping them grow and achieve their professional goals. Through Futuremakers, we continued to demonstrate our commitment to deliver our brand promise Here For Good and we will make a further positive impact in our local communities.

Enactus Poland would like to thank Standard Chartered for their continuous support provided over the last two years. Together we have helped over 1000 young people living in Poland who have been economically affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and this wouldn’t be possible without the commitment shown by everyone involved.

The programme was part of Futuremakers by Standard Chartered, the Bank’s global initiative to tackle economic inequality. It was funded by the Standard Chartered Foundation, the lead delivery partner for Futuremakers. While our partnership with Enactus Poland has ended, we would like to express our gratitude for the two years of successful cooperation which resulted in a successful delivery of the project’s goals.

We continue to support the delivery of BEST (Business Employability Skills Training) project in partnership with Youth Business International and Youth Business Poland. We aim to assist 10,000 young people from Ukraine affected by the war who are looking for jobs or want to set their business in Poland.
