Business Council For Peace, Inc.
March 23, 2014

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

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.
