Founded by Roshan Khadivi, ..., 22 Jan 2015 [cached]
Founded by Roshan Khadivi, Citizen Global is based in New York.
Roshan has worked as a spokeswoman, writer, media officer, social media and art exhibitions coordinator, field producer, and special advisor in the United States, Switzerland, Tajikistan, Cameroon, Chad, Ukraine, Uganda, Liberia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, amongst other places. ?
Prior to Citizen Global, Roshan was with the office of the UN Assistant Secretary-General in New York covering the UN Peacebuilding Support. She has also worked with UNICEF and partners on specific sectors focusing on Education, Child Protection, Health and Nutrition, Water and Environmental Sanitation, and Women's issues in New York, Haiti, Afghanistan, Sudan, Tunisia, Libya, Myanmar, and many other places.
Before her UN assignments, Roshan worked in Tajikistan as the Country Director for Internews Network. In this capacity, she coordinated activities to support media outlets in Central Asia. ?
I met Roshan in 2010 in Port-au-Prince. Her enourmous support and inputs were critical in our coverage of Haiti and follow up stories. Roshan is well informed about global issues and a pleasure to work with. To this day, I continue to rely on her for contacts. Roshan is a creative person and a real connector with a wide network. I recommend her highly to any organization.
I worked with Roshan when she was heading up Internews' programming in Tajikistan. Roshan took Internews' programs to a new level of excellence in a challenging environment. She raised the profile of Internews in Tajikistan through extensive promotion and communication, forging new partnerships and collaborations. She worked at a time in which Internews was experiencing rapid growth and she managed it thoughtfully.

I have had the pleasure of working closely with Roshan in her various capacities in Afghanistan (IRIN and UNICEF), Uganda (UNICEF) and New York (UNICEF and PBSO). In every instance, she has produced work of the highest quality, demonstrating both diligence and dedication to the issues concerned. Roshan's natural ability to infuse an affirmative, energetic and people-oriented approach into her work makes her truly exceptional. I am convinced that this quality enables her to bring the working team together, and I hold that in particularly high regard. I recommend Roshan wholeheartedly.

We're moving forward but it's going to take some time; this is a long process," Roshan Khadivi, a spokeswoman for UNICEF in Port-au-Prince, told the UN News Centre.
"For teenagers, it's easy for them to describe where they lived, but for babies it is much more difficult," Ms. Khadivi said.
An older child can speak but babies can become victims," Ms. Khadivi said.
This is an issue raised at the highest level in the Haitian Government, with our partners and with the international community," said Ms. Khadivi.
"We are sending a message to the international community that while some adoptions have already been approved, we are asking everyone to hold off and let us register these children, and - if possible - to connect them with their communities," Ms. Khadivi said.
"There are families who are afraid of sending kids to school because they're afraid there will be another quake," Ms. Khadivi said.
She said that she hoped the return to school, along with an immunization programme UNICEF planned to launch this week against measles, diphtheria and tetanus, would give families a greater sense of normalcy.
"What I find amazing," Ms. Khadivi said, "[is that] people are shaken, but we have come across people who have not lost hope. They are working.

"According to the Ministry of Education's regulations, primary schools should be located no more than 3 km from a village," explains UNICEF External Relations Officer Roshan Khadivi. "However, there are still many areas that do not have schools within [that] radius - and even this specific distance has been identified as too long for a child of primary school age to commute, especially for girls.
"If parents do not think that their children will be safe in or en route to school, they will keep their children at home," adds Ms. Khadivi.   About Internews, 1 Jan 1995 [cached]
(Includes an interview with Internews Tajikistan Country Director Roshan Khadivi)
Roshan Khadivi is the Tajikistan country director for Internews, an international nonprofit organization supporting open media.She said Tajikistan's broadcasters work under extremely difficult conditions.
With almost no legal support for independent broadcasting and the government highly sensitive to outside political influence, Khadivi said the country's television and radio stations are under constant threat of being arbitrarily closed.She cited one such incident involving Radio NIC, the country's first private radio station to receive a broadcasting license.
"For example, Radio NIC wanted to broadcast regularly.However, they were stopped [earlier this year] in the capital, Dushanbe.Their license was not renewed.There is really no reason for that.None of the government officials has provided any sort of reasoning behind that," Khadivi said.
The country's only remaining independent radio station, Radio Tiroz, continues to broadcast, but only in the remote northern regions of Tajikistan.The majority of the country's 15 independent television stations likewise are limited to that relatively secluded area.Khadivi said she believes this system -- which allows the stations to target Tajik-speaking citizens living in neighboring Uzbekistan -- is politically motivated.
Despite such obstacles, however, Khadivi said Tajikistan's independent television stations are becoming an impossible force to ignore.In the runup to the February 2000 parliamentary elections, when state-run television refused to hold debates, candidates turned to nonstate stations instead.
"That was quite significant.For the first time, television stations in the cities of Khodzhent, Isfara, and Kanibadam provided a platform for different political parties to have a political debate. [However], this was not visible in Dushanbe at all.And [the debates were] also done [only with the help] of a few [international] organizations," Khadivi said.
