Organization promoting and protecting sustainable livelihoods
Situated in rural Mukono, home to Lake Victoria and rich flora and fauna, our NGO partner is promoting and protecting sustainable livelihoods through income and food security, environmental conservation, health and social support. They are seeking a finance professional to review their systems and provide further coaching to their local accounting team.
Their projects include: Sustainable Agriculture, providing disadvantaged families with land to grow crops; Supporting Orphans and Vulnerable Children with educational materials and school fees; Information Technology Café, training children in computer and other vocational skills; and HIV/AIDs Care, including prevention, treatment and other care services.
As the organisation has grown, they have requested support reviewing the accounting systems to help them to meet compliance. You will begin with an internal review of their existing financial procedures, systems and controls. After your assessment, you will be making recommendations for best practice, taking into consideration the resources, capacity and needs of the team.
