Introducing the Afghan Women Project Guidebook -- a document created by business and professional women, many of whom were themselves immigrants to the United States.
A living document, it is intended to provide a starting point for your journey towards success in your new lives, and a repository for your experiences as you balance yourself between your past and your future.
As President of the National Federation of Business and Professional Women's Clubs in the United States, it has been invigorating to welcome displaced Afghan Business and Professional women and to share our advocacy, support, and training while you settle down all over this beautiful country.
I view this guidebook as an opportunity for our organization to live our mission to develop the professional, business, and leadership potential of women at all levels in a direct and compassionate manner.
We look forward to welcoming you into our organization, and we humbly hope that you will find our guidebook and our networks helpful as you begin your journey in the United States of America.
Since 1919 NFBPWC has been a resource and its members have been Allies to women such as you.

This handbook is oriented to be used anywhere, which is why we close it with a compendium of resources available locally, which we invite you to add to!
Please contact Program Chair, Nermin Ahmad with suggestions, additions, or changes for inclusion on a rolling basis in the guidebook.
