Congratulations to Qandi Amaki (Jan), who was just elected as the Afghan Chamber of Commerce Industry’s Director of Membership. Amaki, a 2007 inaugural PTB graduate, made history when she was first elected to this body because she was the only women ever allowed in. Now, she holds a higher position and credits IEEW’s work. “All of this success is a result of the PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS training …that provided me knowledge of professional consultation and public policy advocating,” said Amaki. “Before PTB training, I only had an interest in advocating for women but no one knew who I was.” Amaki says this position will allow her to actively encourage women to participate in micro-business actions in their society.
