Bio of members of ASEC Committee:

Farzana Sultana Clara (Chapter President)

Farzana has been involved with Agami Central in California since 2006 as a volunteer for nearly 9 years. In 2007 she took over the position as the Director of Fundraising and simultaneously got selected to be a member of the Board. Professionally she belongs to the Financial Services industry, working as a financial advisor with Ameriprise, as she built her career with Citigroup for 7 years prior to joining Ameriprise in 2010. She is an advocate for women’s rights, gender equality, animal rights and compulsory education for children irrespective of race, color, gender, or religious affiliation, Farzana considers herself as an activist in these matters. While her personal and professional life rarely give her the satisfaction of making a difference for a destitute soul, her charity work certainly gives her the motivation to keep on going and helping others in need. So after relocating to Virginia a few years ago and working remotely for Agami Central for several years, she decided to work with a few enthusiastic new faces in the locality and build her team for Agami Southeast Chapter (ASEC).


Mustafijur Rahman Parvez (Director of Operations)

Mustafijur Rahman Parvez is currently serving as the Director of Operations Agami Southeast Chapter. He has previously served as Project Coordinator of solar lantern project for Agami Central from 2011 to 2013 in the state of California. Professionally, he is working as a Sr. Software Engineer in Test in Maryland, USA. He has an extensive background of working in journalism and especially with Bengali News Papers "Bangla Patrika" in New York and DREAM Project under School of Medicine, NYC.  He published the commencement of Agami Southeast Chapter announcement in various news mediums.

Sajjad Husain is a native of Dhaka and has lived in Charlotte, North Carolina since 1996. Since 1997, Sajjad has been in the financial industry and currently working for a leading retirement fund management company TIAA-CREF as a relationship manager. His bi-cultural background and focus on community collaboration has led him to a number of volunteer opportunities and community leadership roles. His passion to help others began at an early age. Some of the institution he volunteered for is united way, Salvation Army, Agami and Shaestabad education development trust.  


Mustafizul Shakir (Director of Finance)

Mustafizul H Shakir has a background in international development. He has worked in the area of trade, private sector development, capacity building, and investment policy for the World Bank Group for several years. He has worked in Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, and Afghanistan. Before joining the Bank he worked in public health sector and also as a lecturer in a university in Bangladesh. He has masters from Melbourne University and Dhaka University. He is currently the Director of Finance at Agami South East Chapter but will be taking over the Grant Writing position due to relocating outside of State.


Shariful Islam Romel (Director of Technology)

Shariful Islam (Romel) professionally is working as a Sr. Software Test Engineer in Maryland. He relocated from CA and became aware of Agami through an old friend Parvez. He simultaneously got involved in the launching of the Agami Southeast Chapter with three other recently relocated friends. Being an immigrant in the United States, and leaving his beloved country that gave him the education he needed to be where he is today, Romel strongly believes in giving back to the country he is so indebted, by providing education to the children in need.



Farhana Zaman (Director of Marketing)

Farhana Zaman has joined Agami as the Director of Marketing for the Southeast Chapter. She has relocated in 2015 from Dubai and has been actively involved in volunteering work since 2005. She was the co-founder of Amra Notun club in University of Wollongong Dubai which worked to raise cultural awareness in Bangladeshi students throughout the university establishments in Dubai.

She's a huge advocate about education and development in girls and has written about it in Student Express until 2013. She believes Agami and her goal envisages one belief - 'Education can nourish a better generation and nurture better humans.'


Afsan Khan (Director of Fundraising)

Afsan considers himself immensely fortunate to have joined Agami as a volunteer in 2016, trying to make a difference, however small, for the underprivileged children in Bangladesh. Having gone through the grind of studying at different Bangladesh based schools and universities of mixed reputation and standing with fellow students from diverse social background - some whose parents apparently had enough wealth to buy island nations and others who came from very modest circumstances - Afsan fancies himself to possess the minimum intelligence to recognize the importance of a decent education and its long term impact on a nation’s trajectory of development – although his wife might have the last word on his level of intelligence.  Afsan earns his bread and butter by working as an analyst, crunching numbers and attempting to identify fantastic investment opportunities in pharmaceutical and biotech stocks.



Sadat Khan (Director of Program)

Sadat Khan works as an Accounts Manager at LCOR and has vast experience in the field of Fixed Asset accounting and Corporate/Residential Property Management . He completed his Bachelors of Business Administration (BBA) in Marketing/Accounting from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania (EUP) and Masters of Business Administration in Corporate Finance from Frostburg State University of Maryland (FSU). After schooling he joined CGI in 2006 as a Business Analyst and worked there for two years. In 2008, he joined LCOR and is in his ninth year of service with the company.  He was the Asst. Dir of Outreach for Agami Southeast Chapter since 2016 and will be working as a Director of Program from 2017. He is a devoted, loving and proud husband who has two beautiful children, whose main belief that one does not need a reason to help people.
