Mikang has made a great contribution to PAI’s research team and the projects she has worked on. She is a bright, dedicated, and diligent team member. For example, during her time at PAI she has managed two projects, and relationships with grantees in three countries. She also acquired skills in budget monitoring and expenditure tracking, which she just shared in a successful half-day training for PAI staff that she co-organized and facilitated.
