Our partner works to raise awareness of the needs of people with disabilities in Ghana, providing information on access to healthcare, welfare, education and employment opportunities and advocating for the rights of people with disabilities. 

The charity requires a volunteer Systems Accountant to provide coaching and support for a two to three week period.

You will be the third volunteer on placement here. The last volunteer strengthened financial processes and controls at the organisation, built the confidence of the accountant around completing bank reconciliations and using Excel, and supported the Finance Sub-Committee of the Board in understanding its role and duties. Your role will include building the confidence of the accountant at completing daily accounting tasks, and providing support to the Finance Sub-Committee in implementing previous recommendations. 

The organisation is based near a number of waterfalls famed for their beauty, a monkey sanctuary, the highest mountain in Ghana, and many natural beauty spots. There are also local markets and a sports stadium nearby.

For more information please contact us on  +44 (0) 207 559 1422 or email info@afid.org.uk.  Please forward our details to any accountants in your network that you think would be interested in our work.

If you are interested in volunteering but find yourself unavailable for this specific role, please do get in touch, as we offer a range of volunteering opportunities that can be customised and tailored to your skills and availability.
