Event

Increasing the Bandwidth for Social Change in Afghanistan
With only 34 ATMs, cash is king in Afghanistan. But it's not secure. As former managing director of the corporate social responsibility department at Roshan, Afghanistan's leading telecommunications operator, Shainoor Khoja helped launch mobile banking in her country to help address its massive poverty challenges. Recent projects Shainoor also led include developing a telemedicine solution to address shortcomings in Afghanistan's healthcare system, providing e-learning and low-cost computers to women and children, connecting farmers to local markets through mobile money, facilitating women's leadership in building sustainable and profitable businesses, and setting up the first-ever corporate-based insurance system for Afghan workers.
