Not-for-profit organization empowering women and girls

Visa covered

Siem Reap, Cambodia

2-8 weeks

Our partner is a Cambodian NGO advocating for a fair and equal society for all. They aim to empower women and girls to gain equal access to education, respect and the ability to make decisions about their own lives.

They run a drop-in centre providing free information, support and signposting to further services for women and their families. Women can access one to one counselling and attend workshops on topics such as reproductive and sexual health, maternal care, hygiene and nutrition, financial and business management, parenting skills and challenging gender stereotypes. Our partner's outreach programmes visit girls in schools and families at home. Their target beneficiaries are often living in low income families, have low levels of education and literacy and often informal employment. They also focus their support on victims of domestic violence. They are working to stop the cycle of violence both in and out of the household.

You will be starting with an internal review of their current accounting procedures, systems and controls, and will be making recommendations for best practice within the context of their current resources and capacity. You will be reviewing and updating the financial procedures manual, introducing new procedures and providing staff training and coaching. The current manual was provided by a donor as a template and has not been modified to accurately reflect their systems. They would like your assistance meeting compliance and adhering to donor reporting and expenditure requirements. The project reporting is complicated and they are finding it hard to account for central costs. They would also like training on budget creation and monitoring.
