Co Founders Afghan Women Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AWCCI) LEAD:
Third street of Ansari Square
AWCCI is supported and sponsored by USA based Institute for Educating and Empowering Women Worldwide IEEW and other Organizations.
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 was registered with the Afghan Chamber of Commerce and Industries as a Businesswomen’s Union. LEAD presented a proposal to the High Economic Council chaired by the President Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai to change name to Afghan Women Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AWCCI). LEAD’s name change to AWCCI was approved by the High Economic Council of the Afghan government on March 12, 2017.
