Kanniga is the team leader for SIF’s ECE Mumbai and ECE Jakarta projects. She readily took on the additional responsibility to find an institutional partner in Singapore for the ECE Jakarta project.
Her strong endorsement of SIF as a credible partner to her management paved the way for SIF’s first partnership with Presbyterian Community Services (PCS). In addition to the responsibilities of a project lead, Kanniga brings in suitable and qualified SIVs to deliver each learning domain of ECE and for different components of the projects.
