Sherzai says: “The money raised by your vote will help me buy a minibus and some other automatic cleaning machinery for the first cleaning team.”
Sherzai will receive 100% of the funds raised on his behalf. Bpeace will disburse the funds in conjunction with the ongoing technical assistance we are providing as we guide him through his business expansion process.
Your vote for Sherzai will join with hundreds of others to place much needed capital in the hands of this inspiring Afghan entrepreneur. Sherzai has a vision to help his community by creating jobs and a bridge to better education, improved health, and less violence in the homes and on the streets.
HOW BPEACE SELECTED SHERZAI
Bpeace's Race to Innovation encourages entrepreneurs with bold ideas in conflict-affected countries by providing them with technical assistance from Bpeace experts and seed capital from donors like you.
Sherzai was selected from more than 250 applicants. Bpeace personally interviewed him, and he has been working with a team of U.S. volunteer advisors since December 2009.
Bpeace believes the path to peace is lined with jobs. We work with entrepreneurs in conflict-affected countries to scale their businesses, create significant employment and expand the economic power of women. More jobs mean less violence.®
In the wake of conflict, Bpeace helps entrepreneurs run quicker and bolder. We assist entrepreneurs who share a common vision with us—that employment for women and men is the bridge to education, poverty reduction, improved health, and ultimately less violence; and that jobs for women are vital to women’s advancement and to elevating their peaceful influence on society.
Bpeace is a non-profit organization of business people. We volunteer our expertise, technical assistance, networks and proven methodologies to help Fast Runners expand their businesses, increase profitability, create new employment, retain and attract customers, and access markets and capital. Bpeace tailors a two to three year investment in each entrepreneur—a mix of consulting, training, mentoring, out-of-country apprenticeships and business site visits, employee technical training, equipment, technology, branding and marketing, and networking opportunities.
