This year Enactus has partnered with the UMC Lions and Rotaract Clubs to help raise money for clean water for the residents of Flint, Michigan. The clubs felt passionate about helping out with a water crisis in our own country is where we wanted to focus our efforts this year.  The Flint water crisis was a result of water contamination, which lead to toxic drinking water, lead contamination, and a health crisis for many of its residents.
