Thunderbird for Good, part of the Thunderbird School of Global Management started in 2004 with an idea to provide learning opportunities for Afghan businesswomen. Today they educate students from emerging markets around the world through a range of specific programmes that focus in on female entrepreneurs in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Peru and Central America in collaboration with various local partners. All the programs focus on interactive business training, practical skills such as planning, negotiation, marketing and employee management. They also provide assistance in accessing capital (through their various partners) as well as on-on-one business advising and mentorship and access to a network of like-minded women. More than 30,000 participants have attended programmes at their campus in the USA.
