ILO (International Labour Organization) works for global employment and social challenges, development cooperation and basic labour rights and AWCCI is one of the ILO stakeholders. ILO started its cooperation with AWCCI in 2018. One of the programs that AWCCI with financial support of ILO conducted was Start and Improve Your Business (SIYB) Training Program for the very first time for females in Kabul from March 3 to March 11, 2019. The program consists of 2 parts: Generate Your Business Idea (GYBI) and Start Your Business (SYB). The program lasted for 8 days with the participation of 45 women where they worked on their business plans. The objectives of this training were to enable the SIYB training participants (potential and existing entrepreneurs) to generate business idea and start sustainable business for better income and employment generation.
At the certificate distribution ceremony on last day, Ms. Manizha Wafeq, the President of AWCCI asked the participants to change their ideas to real business and refer to AWCCI for any kind guidance and support while starting and running their business. She added that Afghan women have their own Chamber now. So become a part of women business community and AWCCI. Mr. Fareed-ud-Din Noori from ILO said that it’s not the end but start of your work, implementing what you have learned and also share it with other women. The participants were happy with this program and proposed conducting programs as such.
Thank you @International Labour Organization #ILO Kabul Afghanistan
