Our partner has two programmes aimed at empowering women in Siem Reap through a drop-in and referral centre, aimed at offering women information on issues such as family and domestic violence, mental illness, child abuse/neglect, poverty and job insecurity, and a free referral if they decide to take action based on information offered. More recently, in response to inadequate, inaccessible or highly-priced services, our partner launched a closed eight-week parenting group.  


AfID is looking for a second volunteer on assignment with its partner. The first volunteer spent three-weeks with them over Christmas late last year. There are three full-time employees. Our past volunteer’s brief was to help them set up accounting processes and controls, ensuring they were well-set to apply for funding from trusts and foundations. She created Excel-based templates, including pivot tables, for our partner and trained the Centre Manager, in their use.  


Our partner has asked for help from a volunteer to further build the Centre Manager’s confidence in using the templates, and refreshing her memory in the use of some templates. She is not a qualified accountant, and given her other responsibilities would benefit from further training.  

Additionally, they would really appreciate support in simplifying and linking various other templates that they use to collect information on their programmes and beneficiaries. For example, they currently use Excel for their referral database (a list of organisations they refer women to); monitoring and evaluation (where they compare their beneficiaries’ pre- and post-knowledge after attending workshops); attendance lists; and registration form for all workshop participants. They would like to see this information linked and better presented so that they can use it to better inform themselves of the background of their beneficiaries and the success of their programmes.  


Ideally, a volunteer will be with the organisation by the end of October for four weeks.
