We help women in regions of conflict and post-conflict build businesses to sustain their families and strengthen their abilities to foster peace.
The Business Council for Peace (Bpeace) is a non-profit organization of international businesspeople who volunteer our time to help women in conflict regions like Afghanistan and Afghanistan build sustainable businesses.
Our belief is that when women can begin to heal their families...through greater economic security...they can begin to further peace efforts in their larger communities and on a national level as their country rebuilds. Very simply, more jobs mean less violence.
We have more than 200 businesspeople members who volunteer their time and networks to help mentor and train entrepreneurs in these regions and help them with access to markets and financing.
