TATIANA KLIK, PROGRAM DIRECTOR – TKLIK@USABFI.ORG
I know how to make the impossible possible. I have an SEO, Social Psychology, Media, and Big Event Organizing background. I love people, but especially kids because of their kindness, creativity, and love for them are natural.
Master of Journalism at the National University of Uzbekistan; Master of Law, Master of Psychology, & MBA at Lomonosov Moscow State University
I love the coordination and managing all aspects of an ongoing program which includes creating, planning, organizing, staffing, leading, and controlling program activities for the overall success of the Organization. We want today’s children to grow up in a world better than our current one. While headlines often focus on what’s wrong, in many ways, the world is changing for the better. Health is improving, poverty is shrinking, knowledge is growing, people are connecting, and there are technological advances in every field which means life can be drastically better than it is today. We will do our part to make this happen because we have a moral responsibility to all children in the next generation.
