I have become a board member this year but have been a volunteer for 10 years. Bpeace continues to punch above its weight in terms of making an impact and doing so with a very limited budget. The women (and men) we work with in Rwanda, Afghanistan, El Salvador and now Guatemala not only get excellent business consulting from the volunteers they also get a chance to spend time in companies in the US learning best practices and making business relationships. I'm proud to be part of this organization and truly believe more jobs means less violence.

This organization is extremely well run so no changes there -- just wish there were an efficient/low cost way to tell more people about what we too and thus recruit more members/volunteers.

BPeace has spent nearly 10 years working to create jobs in some of the worlds toughest places--with a particular focus on employing women and training them to be leaders. A non-profit creating businesses is an amazing idea that doesn't happen often enough. That it's run by business people and has high demands for its own efficiency and measurable results is another notable thing about this organization. Fundraising is important but so are contributions of talent. Check out bpeace.org and consider becoming a volunteer.

I have been a member since 2005 and was inspired to help found their Young Professionals Committee. The enthusiasm among young professionals has been incredible. Bpeace is pioneering a model in which business professionals can volunteer their skills to help entrepreneurs in conflict-affected countries. The result is more jobs, and a reduced incentive locally to fight. Making a difference in an entrepreneur's business can be life-changing for the person volunteering, the entrepreneur, and even their employees. We make a strong impact, and I am now a proud Board Member.

Although a skeptic of many NGOs, when a colleague introduced me to Bpeace in 2005, I instantly knew they were making a difference. A volunteer-run organization, Bpeace empowers people in countries of conflict and post-conflict to provide for themselves, their families, and to build their communities. Bpeace doesn't make handouts or teach in a one-way fashion. Rather, Bpeace is an exchange of business people helping business people, and fosters learning about breaking down barriers in an increasingly global world. We believe business, job creation, vocational training, and access to resources are essential ingredients to fostering stability and peace.

Can-do! Bpeace is a can-do group of people, pooling their experiences, networks and resources together, to share with others. Positive and upbeat. They just do it! Members are very involved with projects that interest them- and Bpeace staff helps enable members to achieve their goals. Bpeace is constantly setting new project goals for the organization to work toward. Bpeace achieves and exceeds expectations each time. Great organization, great energy, connecting expereinces- making a difference and making the world smaller!
