Review for Business Council For Peace, Inc. (Bpeace), Southampton, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It was overwhelmingly inspiring to visit and work with women in Rwanda who have experienced so much loss, pain and hardship. We were there to help them with business issues and they gave us more hope and inspiration than imaginable. These entrepreneurs want to strengthen their capabilities and move forward. We assisted in that goal by our training seminars, our ability to convey our experience and learned lessons in business and by our networking skills and global connections.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing women in Rwanda expand their businesses, teach others their skills that we have helped improve, seeing the pride in our associates as they profit, can feed their families and improve the lives of others.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing how the women in Rwanda take advantage of the programs and opportunities they have been offered. I saw this as well with our associates from Afganistan who came to NYC and showed their products (mostly textiles) to NYC buyers

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

experienced in business, sharp, leaders in their field and amazing brainstormers!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand to other countries, slowly and change the lives of many in a positive way.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
