Monna Sitayo

I am the Programs Coordinator at TATO, and I am in charge of the UNDP-funded project ‘Green Growth and Disruptive Innovation for Tourism’. I have strong experience in managing donor-funded projects, which I obtained from my work at the Nelson Mandela African Institute of Science and Technology (Belgian-funded VLIR IUC/NM-AIST) and TAHA (UNDP-funded project ‘Connecting Youth and Women to Sustainable Development).
I have a finance and accounting background from the Institute of Finance Management (IFM), and after working as an accountant for over 5 years at the multi-billion-dollar Gapco.T. Limited Petroleum Company, I developed a passion for managing large projects. umped at the chance to broaden my horizons, and thanks to the continuous hands-on project management training I’ve been receiving, I’ve been sailing along in the project management world so far. Projects are all about delivering and making an impact, and this is undeniably where my heart lies.
When I’m not at work, I’m an artist who enjoys drawing and doing weekly workouts at home to stay in shape physically and mentally. I also enjoy cycling, cooking, and traveling.
