Lead advisor, Gender-based violence

« Mariam translated several documents from English to French for the gender team at Jhpiego, a global health NGO affiliated with The Johns Hopkins University. She did an excellent job on all products, delivering high quality work with the correct translations for many technical and obscure terms […]. She was responsive and met our deadlines, and I have highly recommended her services to other colleagues. In particular, her knowledge of francophone African French was particularly useful for us[…]. »

Global SRH advisor

« I've had the pleasure of working with Mariam over many years across multiple NGOs. […] She stays so busy and works with many key stakeholders in the global health and development field, but still manages to be responsive to emails and have a quick turnaround on deliverables. The quality of her work is far above other translators I have utilized, and you can also tell she deeply cares about her work and the success of the partner organizations she works with. You will also almost find her at key events and conferences in our field. […] »
