Our Philosophy
This is what we believe in

Anyone with an entrepreneurial spirit should have access to networks, resources and knowledge in order create a social impact for communities!

how it all started

the story of impact

In the aftermath of a series of severe attacks in Afghanistan; especially the one in Kabul on the German Embassy on the 31st of May 2017, Ahmad Fahim Didar, Nicole Bogott and Matiullah Rahmaty came together to discuss opportunities to start a new narrative on Afghanistan; inside and outside of the country. This is how impACT was first created.

Afghanistan is a county that has continuously been portrayed very negatively in the media with one-sided stories on war, violence and hardship. And yes, it is part of the story of Afghanistan. But Afghanistan also has another side to it, which is equally real, and impACT is telling that story. We want to change the narrative by highlighting entrepreneurial approaches that address societal challenges.

Our Methodology

The Power Triangle

The Power Triangle Model illustrates the foundations of having an impact. The model enables actors in different contexts to assess their own scope of action and gain a deeper understanding of and control over their own level of influence.
