Profits With Purpose - Afghanistan The Global Good Podcast

    • Places & Travel

There’s nothing a terrorist fears more than an educated girl. But right now, only 37% of adolescent girls in Afghanistan are literate. And of the 3.5 million children out of school, 85% are girls. This week we’re joined by one of the guys from an incredible company called Combat Flip Flops, co-founded by U.S. special forces members who met in Afghanistan, now creating jobs in war zones - and then turning business proceeds into community good and education in Afghanistan. Meet the Unarmed Forces.

Intro music by Siddhartha Corsus - Sita's Song

Episode music by Taomito – Desert Dream

Produced by WillPower Productions

Images & Video provided by Combat Flip Flops, Anthony Bolante of the Puget Sound Business Journal, AFN Afghanistan, USAID Afghanistan, U.S. Marines, U.S. Navy.
