Accounting for International Development is working with a small progressive organisation which uses football as a tool for social change. Whilst its primary programme has been the delivery of interactive activities that allow youths to explore issues around HIV/AIDS, TB and other health concerns, it recently initiated a programme increasing awareness of corruption among local youths involving teaching them effective methods and skills to prevent corruption. This initiative was well-received and got significant exposure in local media.
As the first AfID volunteer at the organisation your role would be akin to conducting an internal audit. You will need to gain an understanding of the organisation and its structure, assessing its existing financial procedures and controls, and making recommendations / implementing changes that you deem necessary. This is of vital importance because not only will you help the organisation during your assignment but your assessment and reports will form the basis for future assignments.
Additionally, they have requested support in identifying a suitable accounting system for them to use (currently all accounts are recorded on Excel), and with managing the reporting requirements of their donors.
April onwards 3-4 weeks

Accounting for International Development (A f I D) arranges customisable voluntary placements tailor-made to fit your availability, skills and preferences.  We are now supporting more than 150 NGOs and charities across 28 countries and we desperately need the assistance of more volunteer accountants to coach and mentor some amazing local people.

Candidates from all age ranges, levels of experience and specialisms are needed.

Volunteer assignments between 2 weeks and 12 months in length form part of an on-going strategy to build the financial management capacity and long term sustainability of development organisations across Africa and Asia. These organisations,  which include street kid centres, health clinics, international charities, social enterprises and microfinance institutes, are doing amazing work to tackle extreme poverty in their communities but sadly have little or no access to vital accounting skills and services.
