TESTIMONIALS

Saja has made a significant impression on me through all aspects of his work as an efficient administrator, his execution of a programme of workshops for humanitarian agencies in the north of Sri Lanka, and as a creative and committed student. He is conscientious in all the activities he has undertaken, and he definitely has the potential to take on further responsibilities.

Bryan Walker

Saja is super efficient and detail oriented in every activity. He is also very supportive and takes time to listen to the team. Saja enjoys studying a broad area of subjects. He is particularly fond of numbers and the magic of Excel.

Fathema Mansoorallly

Saja is a very competent, capable and talented employee. He is very adaptable and supporting in many different roles and has proven himself capable of managing the most demanding of situations during his time with ECHO Sri Lanka. Aslam is very conscientious person and has the clear potential to be a leader in different roles.
