"Those who saw the effects of the 1949 earthquake in Tadjikistan, who saw the landslide that was triggered, instantly burying a town of 20,000—we know the problem. But only someone trusted from the outside, like GHI, has been able to bring us together to help us develop and implement a plan for what needs to be done."

"I admire GHI because no one else is doing the independent, objective work they're doing. GHI has the advantage of being non-governmental, which gives them flexibility. They're not constrained by bureaucracy or politics — so they can offer expertise, provide access to a network, bring resources together — and do all those things with integrity."
