 Our partner works to empower children, families and communities - and supports the government - to provide the best environment for children to develop to their fullest potential.  

 They grew out of the work of a UK-based charity. Initially programmes were providing direct aid to families in need; over time, the focus has shifted towards development. More recently, they are looking at supporting children in the most vulnerable situations – helping reintegrate orphans and vulnerable children with their own or foster families; supporting children exposed to or at risk of violence; and providing education and support around sexual rights, responsibilities and sexually transmitted infections.  

In 2011, our partner made a decision to stop working directly through the UK-based Charity in line with a change in its strategy. Since then, the organisation has been working toward autonomy and establishing itself as an independent entity. You can imagine this has had its own challenges, specifically around fundraising.   You will be the first volunteer on assignment at our new partner and as such your role will be akin to conducting an internal audit, understanding the structure of the organisation, assessing its existing financial procedures and controls, and making recommendations/ implementing changes as deemed necessary. In light of their changing structure, they want to ensure that they are well placed to attract and manage donor funds. Specifically, they have recently received institutional funding, and would like support in managing the grant. They would also like the programme staff to be trained on creating and managing their budgets, such that they are able to take more responsibility of their own budget lines.  

This assignment will begin between June and August or November onwards. It will last for 4-8 weeks. AfID is looking for someone experienced and able to adapt to change.
