We love hearing news of JIS Alumni and so were delighted to read of Yvonne Teng's participation in the UK team for the Enactus World Cup.
Enactus is an international nonprofit organisation with 70,500+ students from 1,700+ universities in 36 countries. London will host its signature global event – Enactus World Cup. From September 26th to 28th, 2017 a select group of 3,500 students, business, academic and government leaders from around the globe will gather in London for this special event that includes three unforgettable days of collaboration, competition and celebration.
The members of Enactus believe that entrepreneurial action can create a better world for us all. Guided by academic professionals and supported by business executives, Enactus students apply their talents and innovative thinking to create community development projects focused on areas such as entrepreneurship, food security, access to water and women’s economic empowerment that empower others to improve their livelihoods.
Like in business, competition in the social sector encourages creativity and rewards results. At the Enactus World Cup, the National Champion team from each of the 36 participating countries have the opportunity to showcase the entrepreneurial action they took to raise the standard of living for others. Top global business executives serve as judges, evaluating the teams’ performance and ultimately select one as the Enactus World Champion.
After completing her A Levels at JIS in July 2015, Yvonne (on the left in the photo) entered Kings College London where she is studying Law. You may read more here about the project the UK team have been involved in here:

Photo by @FransLanting Two orphaned orangutans cling to each other in northern Borneo. Like humans, they need affection and care from their mothers in order to become healthy adults. Orangutans are the last great apes that survive outside of Africa. They live only on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra, and they are endangered due to the massive destruction of their forest habitat. Baby orangs are also victims of the illegal pet trade—captured by poachers who kill their mothers to reach them. It is imperative that we protect the forests orangutans depend upon to insure that our next of kin on the family tree of life will be with us beyond our lifetime. I welcome you to support the organizations that are in the front lines of protecting them, such as the World Wildlife Fund and Wild Aid. I share this image in honor of World Orangutan Day, Saturday August 19. Follow me @FransLanting for more images of endangered animals around the world.

Habéis visto ya nuestro último vídeo?Poder ver a los orangutanes en su habitat natural, ha sido una de las experiencias más bonitas que he vivido y viviré en esta vida, seguro. Se me intentaron cagar y mear encima desde lo alto de una palmera, dejaron sin desayuno a nuestros vecinos del barco de al lado... pero aun así les cogí un cariño tremendo. Una pena que el negocio del aceite de Palma esté a punto de extinguirlos. El ser humano es sin duda la peor bestia de este mundo 🤦🏽♂️
