Youth driven sustainable development NGO [112]
Pro bono


2-4 weeks 
Our partner is a young Tanzanian NGO with a vision to transform poor children’s dreams into reality through education, to break the cycle of poverty, and to create a generation with creative and independent minds. 
Currently day-to-day accounting and finance activities are undertaken by a full-time volunteer with support from the Founding Director, neither of whom have an accounting background. They are fortunate to have a Board member, who is a Certified Accountant, who provides oversight and guidance on the organisation’s financial management, visiting the office once or twice a week.
As the first AfID to support this partner you will undertake an initial review of their accounting processes, procedures and controls before making recommendations on how these can be strengthened, streamlined and improved and starting to implement these changes. 
Broadly, they are requiring support in the following areas:
  • Improving their financial reporting
  • Improving their expenditure record keeping 
  • Reviewing their use of QuickBooks 
  • Providing guidance on financial strategy 
The organisation does have written policies and procedures and these should be reviewed and updated based on changes implemented as per the above.
