Lambton College is a world champion.

A local team of students won the Enactus World Cup in San Jose, California, beating out over 30 other teams from colleges and universities from around the globe.

Lambton College President Judith Morris said their six-year “One Seed” project in Zambia helped get them to the world stage.

“The Enactus Canada group, and certainly the world Enactus team, are always talking about how it’s a power of one and that anybody can make a difference, and that’s what this One Seed project is about,” said Morris. “It allows our students to see that they have power, and they can help one person Zambia and then that becomes one more, and then it becomes the power of “we”, and that is what Enactus is all about — business helping people.”

Lambton is the first Canadian college to ever take home the top prize.

Enactus is an international non-profit organization that brings together student leaders to create a better, more sustainable world through the positive power of business. It operates in 36 countries with the involvement of 1,700 college and university campuses.

In May, Lambton College won the national Enactus Canada championship with its six-year “One Seed” project in Zambia.
