Founded in 2009, Accounting for International Development (AfID) is a multi-award winning social enterprise that offers experienced finance professionals the opportunity to use their skills to make a genuine difference as volunteers and gain rewarding hands-on International Development experience at the same time.
Individually tailored assignments lasting from 2 weeks to 12 months, form part of an on-going strategy to build the financial management capacity and long-term sustainability of charities and non-profit community organisations across the world.
Our partners, a blend of international charities and grassroots community based organisations such as street child centres, hospitals, micro-finance organisations, conservation projects, schools and women's empowerment programmes, do amazing work to tackle extreme poverty and inequality but have very little accounting support due to their limited resources.
AfID now supports over 140 partners in more than 28 countries across Africa, Asia and South America. We have placed over 300 volunteer accountants, taking the total hours of pro-bono financial management to over 50 000 which equates to over £5.6 Million of professional financial services.
