A birthday gift for freelance writer Alley L. Biniarz turned out to be more than a scarf — it inspired her to write an article about a UWindsor student’s social enterprise, which helps to fund schooling for children in India.
Dylan Verburg, a master’s candidate in environmental engineering, founded INpact Collective, a social enterprise importing artisan products from India to sell in Canada. Biniarz interviewed him for an article in the local lifestyle magazine, the Drive.
“The scarf wasn’t just a gift for me,” she wrote. “It was a gift for a child in India who wanted to attend school but whose family didn’t have the finances to send them. With the purchase of this scarf, they would receive necessary supplies and funding for after-school activities such as dance, sports, or arts.”
Read her entire piece, “The Promise of Education,” in the spring 2019 edition of the Drive.
