I'm always in doubt when writing something like

I currently make part of the Xyz project.

Is it grammatically correct?

It's a little awkward.

"I am currently making part of the XYZ project" means "at this moment I am producing something that is part of the XYZ project" -- but it might be better to just say "I am currently making part of XYZ".

"I make up part of the XYZ project team" means "I am a member of the XYZ team" (and I would use the latter phrasing).

If your intended meaning isn't one of those two, please clarify.
