My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Business Council For Peace, Inc. (Bpeace), Southampton, NY, USA
My life's work has been the empowerment of other women. Although I worked internationally I had no experience in post-conflict countries. My former congressman who was involved in creating the Afghan-American Chamber of Commerce, invited me to a meeting in Washington, where I met Bpeace founder, Toni Maloney. Six months later I was on the ground in Afghanistan as a Bpeace volunteer. For whatever impact I may have had on the Afghan "Fast Runners" of Bpeace, it could not have been more profound than the impact they and Bpeace have had on me. The organized, structured, no-nonsense approach Bpeace takes to building capacity, creating jobs, and truly empowering women within thier own culture makes Bpeace a stand-out in the NGO commuity.
