I am the executive director and chair the board of the Afghan Child Education and Care Organization (AFCECO). AFCECP operates four orphanages in Afghanistan, and two for orphaned Afghan refugees in Pakistan, overseeing the care of over 300 orphans.
I enrolled in the 10,000 Women program to improve my management and leadership skills, such as human resource management.
The 10,000 Women program has helped me to develop a strategic plan for the development of AFCECO and to manage my business. Not only did I learn important management and leadership skills, but I also learned the importance of finance and marketing to the business. I also learned the importance of developing a wide network of contacts.
The plan for AFCECO over the next year is to open a school in Kabul for the children in AFCECO orphanages. I would like to keep the children in a safe environment while they are at school, and ensure that standards for their education are as high as the standard of care we insist upon in the orphanages.
