eNett selects Nepal as the next beneficiary of ‘Repay the eNett Way’ 2018

March 27, 2018

eNett International, a leading provider of business-to-business payment solutions to the travel industry, has chosen Nepal as the next country of focus for its annual CSR programme ‘Repay the eNett Way’. Partnering with THISWORLDEXISTS, a travel not-for-profit organisation, eNett employees will be fundraising throughout the year, before several of them get a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel to Nepal to participate in a number of activities and projects to help the local communities there.

‘Repay the eNett Way’ aims to improve the education and career opportunities for underprivileged communities in high tourism growth countries. Nepal’s travel industry contributes US$1.6B to its GDP1, with tourism one of Nepal's biggest earners of foreign income. Yet it still ranks as one of the poorest countries in the world. This was made worse by the devastating earthquake in 2015, which impacted more than 8 million people2. Infrastructure and housing is still recovering today.

To draw attention to the continuing problems in Nepal and get truly hands-on, eNett has partnered with THISWORLDEXISTS. The volunteer run organisation uses all profits to implement sustainable education projects in underprivileged communities, which travellers can then have direct involvement via volunteer opportunities. The eNett team globally will be carrying a range of fundraising activities including bake sales and team activities to raise money that will be used to construct a school building. Following an application process, a group of eNett employees will get the opportunity to experience the Nepalese way of life first-hand, and help make a difference in the local communities there.

Anthony Hynes, MD and CEO of eNett International, said “Supporting South Africa in 2017 and Cambodia the year prior, we saw first-hand the big difference CSR programmes like ours can make to the lives of people in underprivileged regions. Through our collective fundraising activities, we were able help break the cycle of poverty for some families and communities. This year the eNett team will go even further, raising money to build a school in Phokara, Nepal. And with this, leaving a lasting legacy.

Ryan Gray Founder and Director of THISWORLDEXISTS, said “I started the charity with the ambitious aim to change the world. Partnering with a global company like eNett will mean we will be able to change the world for hundreds of children in Nepal. I look forward to working with eNett and taking the team on an adventure to discover the true Nepal. The experience will not only impact the lives of the people they meet there, but also have a lasting impact on the volunteers.”
