YEP Role

As of January 2017, I have been working as Business Development and Partnerships Manager for Max Foundation’s Bangladesh office. This means that I contribute to fundraising by identifying new opportunities for funding and translating our goals and methods in Bangladesh to fight child mortality and increase child health into well-designed proposals. Moreover, to support all fundraising initiatives and increase the effectivity and efficiency of our programs, I maintain and develop good working relationships with partners and potential partners.

In my efforts, I work closely with our Country Director in Bangladesh, as well as the Max Foundation business development department in the Netherlands.
