Educating and empowering women around the world economically, socially, and politically

What We Do

IEEW exists to educate and empower women around the world economically, socially and politically. We do this through our PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS ® program, which uses a four-pronged approach focused on in-country education, US-based leadership development, mentorship with American women, 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.
