What We Do
The Institute for Economic Empowerment of Women educates and empowers women around the world economically, socially and politically. We do this through our signature PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS® program, which uses a four-pronged approach focused on in-country education in Afghanistan and Rwanda, US-based Leadership Development, mentorship with American women and men, and paying it forward in local communities. For the past 15 years, IEEW has educated and empowered 979 women business owners in Afghanistan and Rwanda.
PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS®
Under the umbrella of IEEW operates the PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS® Program. Our program works to educate and empower women business owners.
PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS® STUDENTS
PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS® students in Afghanistan and Rwanda come from diverse ethnicities within their countries and their businesses reflect that diversity by industry.
PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS® MENTORS
One of the key parts of the PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS® Program is mentorship. Our students are paired with accomplished business owners who work with them in various capacities.
