SSC supports Project Artemis — a unique business-skills training program that aims to build the entrepreneurial skills of promising Afghan business women.

Thirty women from Afghanistan have participated in the three sessions of Project Artemis, held in 2005, 2006 and 2008.

Included in the project are two weeks of business and entrepreneurial decision-making training; mentorship by women entrepreneurs; site visits to U.S. businesses; and follow up support and business coaching online. Thunderbird School of Global Management is uniquely positioned to provide the type of training that has made Project Artemis successful.

Many of the Project Artemis participants returned home to either establish or expand a business that has helped others in their country. Some are using their new business knowledge to succeed within civil society. The multiplying effect of Project Artemis can be seen in the jobs created, the knowledge shared, and the new examples set for future generations.
