Can you believe it?!? YWSE is in Afghanistan!
The preliminary launch is being co-hosted by Fatima Popal, Rebecca Miller, and Rachel Zedeck (co-founder of YWSE Nairobi)!
The common goal between them? To build a network which boosts women, whether local or international, to accomplish their professional goals and share both their struggles and successes!
How amazing and necessary is that!
YWSE Kabul is being launched this Saturday on May 4th, 2013.
Rachel, Rebecca, and Fatima are hosting a simple but tasty event - including tea, coffee, and cake. For two hours this Saturday, a handful of women will meet at a restaurant. They will all be looking forward to connecting to women in Afghanistan, who are committed to a better future for all women - through a commitment to doing "good" business.
The social and security-related implications of a group of women meeting over tea and cake may not seem mighty to us here in the United States. But in Kabul, it is a major achievement that can only be followed up by more boldness and strength among the women there.
Rachel says, "We'll start with baby steps, but are reaching out to Afghan women working in local government, as well as programs targeting women in business."
Well said, Rachel.
