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

Rating: 5 stars  

I joined Bpeace in April 09 and have worked directly on their Race to Innovation project in Afghanistan and Rwanda, am an advocate in direct communication with an amazing entrepreneur in Afghanistan, did customer service training for a collaborative project to open the first ice cream store in Rwanda, hosted a group of Rwandan businesswomen in Pa for a week in 2011. The CEO of Bpeace has been an inspiration and I have learned a tremendous amount from her. I do believe that more jobs mean less violence. Members are encouraged to experience their philanthropy, and I have appreciated the direct connection to where my money goes.

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

creating jobs with locals in post conflict countries
