The Fatima Bint Mohamed Bin Zayed Initiative was founded in 2010. It is a joint venture between HH Sheikah Fatima Bint Mohamed Bin Zayed of Abu Dhabi and Tanweer Investments in Afghanistan. The social enterprise was originally established to initiate a change in the stark realities of Afghanistan’s women and children. FBMI invests locally in healthcare, education, numerous social and economic reforms; and provides employment in the ancient art of hand-knotted carpet making. About 70% of FBMI employees are women & widows who work from home. Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.
