Under the leadership of Blossom Hill Foundation fellows, Furogh Mirdad and Ahmad Wali Rostami, Ms. Hussaini, along with 48 young women in Afghanistan, are receiving instruction in entrepreneurship and business management to learn how to run a small business and become financially self-sufficient. Ms. Hussaini remarked, "My trip to Shahrara Garden -- a women's garden and marketplace in Kabul -- was a very inspiring experience. I found it a window of opportunity for a start up." Our 2016 fellows are providing young women with skills and the knowledge to shape their economic futures.
