Pragmatic Woman Building Future of Afghanistan - Page 2
Beyond her work at AIL, Yacoobi co-founded and sits on the board of a Michigan based non-profit - Creating Hope International (CHI) - a fiscal partner of AIL. For her efforts over the years, Yacoobi has been granted several awards, the most recent being her induction into the Enterprising Women Hall of Fame in March of this year.
While Yacoobi's goal could be considered educating all of Afghanistan, this pragmatic woman realizes that simply may not be attainable. But, she continues her work, with or without a tangible goal beyond educating as many people as she can. She and her employees are poorly paid in comparison to their peers from other international aid organizations, but that is how Yacoobi manages to help as many as she does. It also leaves her with a highly dedicated staff that is there for the cause - not the cash.
