In 2017, We Kick Off Our Second Decade of Global Impact
PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS(r) has 10 years of educating and empowering women in Afghanistan and Rwanda under our belts. We are excited to continue our efforts with this year’s class in January 2017. Classes in Kabul and Kigali will meet for 10 weeks to study basic business principles, take part in lectures, discussions, and break-out sessions under the direction of In-Country Facilitators, Manizha Wafeq and Chantal Munanayire.
In-country classes will cover many different subjects including accounting, marketing, and finance to women who have dreams of entrepreneurship. In addition, each student will have the opportunity to be matched with an American eMentor in a like-industry to assist in developing a business plan for her future.
To qualify for PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS(r), you must meet the criteria set by the Institute for Economic Empowerment of Women:
- have an established business for at least one year
- own at least 51% of their business
- and provide an official business/trade license registered with their government or Ministry
The application for 2017 launches on September 12, 2016. Applications are due November 28, 2016.
