Business Council For Peace
Well-being, Community, Peace
We help women entrepreneurs in post-conflict countries expand their businesses, create employment, and build a peaceful future for their communities.
In Afghanistan: The strategy of Bpeace in Afghanistan is to focus on fast runners: high potential, literate, business women who demonstrate an intuitive business sense. We believe they are in the best position to create new jobs for other Afghans. We provide them with pro-bono consulting on all aspects of their business.
The Bpeace Apprentice Road Trip (BART) The Bpeace Apprentice Road Trip is an unprecedented opportunity for Afghan businesswomen to gain practical experience in the U.S. in their chosen industries. Bpeace will bring 12 Afghan women entrepreneurs working in non-traditional and non-handicraft industries to the US in 2008 for three-week internships and apprenticeships with different firms.
In Rwanda: 2007 is the 13th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide. Rwandan women, who make up a majority of the population, have a significant role to play in rebuilding and healing their country. Bpeace is helping women in these countries acquire skills to give them financial independence and create jobs in their communities.
