Sabrina Quaraishi, a Bangladeshi national, joined Grameen Foundation in 2007. She is the Director for Bankers without Borders, Grameen Foundation's global skills-based volunteer initiative that connects top volunteer talent with social enterprises, using market-based solutions tailored to the needs of the world's poorest people.

In her role, she provides the strategic direction of the program, manages global operations, oversees all corporate collaborations and a global staff and represents the program with key stakeholders within the corporate and social sector. Sabrina’s interest in international development started in 2000 where she had the opportunity to study the empowerment of village phone operators at Grameen Bank in Bangladesh. She completed her Master’s in international affairs from The New School in New York in 2007 and her Bachelors in management and economics from Hood College in Maryland in 2001.
