Grassroots organisations such as health clinics, street child centres and schools hugely benefit from financial coaching and support: the improvement in financial management allows them to continue their good work, to reach out more in their communities and secure a long term future.
Assignments typically focus on areas such as:
- Conducting a Financial Health Assessment/Internal Audit
- Coaching and developing the accounting skills of local charity staff
- Assisting with the preparation and analysis of financial plans and budgets
- International donor relations reporting
- Implementation of robust and sustainable financial controls and procedures
