Ehsan Naim

Country Director (VOLUNTARY) - Afghanistan

Ehsan Naim is a business development and marketing professional who has worked for nearly two decades in the NGO and commercial sectors, including over 12 years of hands-on experience delivering humanitarian aid with international organizations in Asia, Middle East and Africa.
He is a native Pashto speaker, and is also fluent in Dari/Farsi, Hindi and Uzbek (in addition to English).
During Ehsan’s humanitarian-focused years, he worked with a number of international humanitarian organizations (including well-known German, Italian and Czech organizations). His main focus was Afghanistan and some of its neighboring countries (Pakistan, Uzbekistan, and Iran), where he managed programs related to livelihoods, natural resource management, social reintegration, and vocational training – both in major cities and remote areas.
However, he also spent many years in foreign postings, including holding senior roles implementing local humanitarian efforts in India and Sri Lanka. His work with the largest Czech NGO, People in Need, eventually led to his move to the Czech Republic for 3 years, where he spent time in the commercial sector while working on his Masters degree in International Development and Agriculture Economics. During this time, he cooperated with Czech and European companies as a commercial director and a business development advisor for Middle East and central Asian markets, with an emphasis on the oil & gas, renewable energy, IT and e-government sectors.
Ehsan is now working to bring DOT Glasses to various geographies in the Middle East and Central Asia, where the problem of uncorrected poor vision has a tremendous negative impact on the lives of tens of millions of people.
