Mari is our go-to Afghan interpreter!
This picture was taken the first week our Afghan trainee, Bacha, started at MAKE Projects. Mari shared a plate of mandazis with Anchi and reflected on the conversations she had with Bacha during this first week. Mari had tears in her eyes as she described the pride that Bacha expressed on her first day completing onboarding paperwork with us, Bacha's first time alone in the world. With Mari's interpretation, Bacha has developed a resume and conducted a mock interview with Abigail. Meanwhile, Abigail and Mari just accompanied Bacha's husband to a job interview this past week at the Town and Country Hotel in Mission Valley. He starts his first job in the U.S. on Monday!
