The National Federation of Business and Professional Women’s Clubs has begun outreach and support to welcome the displaced women refugees of Afghanistan by implementing the Afghan Women Project. The immediate goal of this support project is providing needed clothing and fundraising.
NFBPWC learned of the needs of these women from our New York City Affiliate Chapter which works closely with the United Nations as a UN recognized NGO. Following this initiative, we plan to continue to address all issues of advocacy with help in adjusting to new environments and daily life.
NFBPWC will open paths to professional business resources, providing practical assistance, and mentoring to those who seek career and business advice through a mentoring program. Outreach has already begun on the National level with NFBPWC members across the country.
Our Federation is proud to be able to take our collective skills and use them to ease the stress of migration, and form a bridge between the courageous, driven women in Afghanistan to the women ready to excel here. Our practical intervention is aimed to fill a gap in government resettlement services.
NFBPWC's national network has the reach to augment the abilities of the Afghan women to navigate skills and resources in the United States. We want to continue their dreams of personal liberty as they sought careers and entrepreneurship in Afghanistan, to create elevated work and opportunity here in America.
