  2. This is marvelous to see that Cisco is on the ground helping women in Afghanistan with entrepreneurship. I recently became friends with Sonia Ziaee who worked as an IT instructor to women and girls in Kabul thanks to Cisco Systems. She is now in college in Australia and credits Cisco Systems for all the help they give Afghan women. Thank you Cisco for your assistance with women and girls being educated in Afghanistan.
