During her time at PAI, she managed two projects and relationships with grantees in three countries. She also acquired skills in budget monitoring and expenditure tracking, which she just shared in a successful half-day training for PAI staff that she co-organized and facilitated.”

Program implementers with years of experience.
“Asja was invaluable to the organization. As a small nonprofit, Asja quickly became integral to developing and carrying out programs. She was most instrumental in designing and launching our Young Gamechangers program, to which she brought terrific experience from working on a similar project in Bosnia. One of my favorite anecdotes was….Beginning a long drive back to Atlanta through the South Georgia countryside, we were cruising along a back road, tired and silent. Suddenly, a wild turkey flew across the road in a blur, passing within inches of the car’s windshield. It brought much laughter and reminded me how far from home Asja was and yet also how much at home she was as well.”
-Amir Farokhi, GeorgiaForward
