It’s first edition was tried and tested in Kabul in January 2015 by the world’s largest youth-lead organisation AIESEC, Afghanistan’s chapter. Gathering together 200 girls and the positive feedback from all project’s stakeholders the program turned out to be a success which allowed it to continue till today while changing the lives of hundred girls with each of its edition. Now, Inspired By Her re-branded into “Inspired by Her” Academy is an independent international organisation which is gradually expanding further and going global one country at a time, while setting its foot and establishing training grounds, beginning with Lahore, Pakistan. IBH Academy is ready to build the capacity of out of youth in Pakistan, by developing their leadership and entrepreneurship skills, helping them to become economically independent as well as geared towards active service in their community. What makes the project unique is the concept, business model, international platform, mentoring program and the set of opportunities with the academy is providing. “Inspired by Her” Academy activates in partnership with AIESEC, which brings to the delegates the opportunity to benefit from its International Exchange Program – the best way to discover new cultures, break stereotypes and learn the best from each for becoming a better version of ourselves.
