About AWCCI:

Since 2002, many non-profit organizations started working for Afghan women’s empowerment and rights achievement. Almost all focused their activities and advocacy work on women’s political, social, and cultural participation and rights. None has taken on women’s economic participation or businesswomen’s concerns so far. The need for an entity to organize businesswomen’s voice and advocate for their interests is emphasized in the report; Women’s Economic Empowerment, Information mapping, 2002-2012, Afghan Research and Evaluation Unit (AREU): At the national level, an umbrella Afghan women’s organization is needed.

A group of businesswomen realized this need and lack of existence of a platform so they collaborated and established Leading Entrepreneurs for Afghanistan’s Development (LEAD). LEAD was established in 2013 and officially launched on January 22, 2014. It is registered with the Afghan Chamber of Commerce and Industries as a businesswomen’s association.

Leading Entrepreneurs for Afghanistan’s Development (LEAD) that got approval from the High Economic Council of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan presided by President Ashraf Ghani to become Afghanistan’s Women’s Chamber of Commerce and Industries on March 12th, 2017.

Vision: Afghan Women and Female Entrepreneurs have national and international recognition for their contribution to the sustainable economic development of Afghanistan.

Mission: To meaningfully represent and support women’s concerns and interests in the economic sector.
