The Great Generation spolight ESCP Europe student

The Great Generation is a charity organisation that aims to fulfill the United Nation's Millennium Development Goals, ranging from tackling poverty to reducing the spread of HIV/AIDS.

In July of last year, nine students from ESCP Europe went to Uganda for a fortnight's work on a capacity building project. One of those, Alvaro Perez, was spotlighted by the organisation in March. 

"I can honestly say that my decision to participate on this project was one of the best I've made! I enjoyed every single minute that I committed to fundraising and planning for the project. I cannot think about any other time in my life where I have gotten so much in such a short amount of time.

We had the opportunity to develop and share some of the business skills that we had learnt at ESCP. We did this through teaching, brainstorming and preparing documentation for the expert partner in Uganda to help them leverage their skills and grow as an organisation. We also had the opportunity to get to know them more deeply and learn from their stories of success.

It was an all-around overwhelming experience, one worth repeating."
