Our partner is a youth-founded and youth-led organisation, providing health and leadership education to increase school attendance, decrease early pregnancy and improve health outcomes.
Your role, as the third AfID volunteer, will be to focus on strengthening the Executive Director’s financial oversight and analysis as they grow as an organisation. She has self-taught and has advanced her management skills but would benefit from the support of an experienced financial professional to guide her and mentor her in the following areas:
- Financial oversight skills and understanding of internal control mechanisms. You will understand the Executive Director’s current challenges with financial oversight and identify opportunities for improvement.
- You will identify with the Executive Director the type of financial metrics and information that she needs to have for different stakeholders (board members, donors, partners) and brainstorm different ways that this information could be presented.
- Finance & accounting terminology, methods, and systems; for example in the questions asked by donors/partners in grant applications & reports.
- Develop metrics to track efficiency in the context of making a case on the “value for money” of its comprehensive sexuality education program.
