building global prosperity through

social entrepreneurship




"I believe that prosperity and stability are largely dependent on our ability to make long-term investments in teaching local people the skills necessary to buildentrepreneurial companies.  Through Future Brilliance and Aayenda Jewelry, we are demonstrating just how successful this approach can be. This small company has captured global attention - and admiration - in just a few short years.  By actively helping Afghans develop products that can compete on design, price, and quality with the world’s finest we are helping to put a struggling nation on a path to a peaceful and sustainable future."
