DescriptionThe mandate of the AWBC is to advocate on behalf of women entrepreneurs throughout the country, thereby facilitating women’s entry into the private sector. Since its inception, the AWBC has worked directly with 23 associations, representing 5,000 registered members from Kabul, Parwan, Kapisa, Laghman, Herat, Ghazni and Mazar-e-Sharif provinces. With the support of these partners, the AWBC has also sent a number of its members to attend training sessions with organizations such as the Centre for International Private Enterprise (CIPE), the AICC and the International Labor Organization (ILO). The AWBC has also expanded operations to the provincial Women's Resource Centres (WRCs), facilitating training programmes in business skills development production for local markets. In the city of Kabul and Kapisa and Parwan provinces, more than 900 women have attended these programmes. Their main areas of work lie with carpet and handicraft.
