Organization preserving indigenous culture, history and heritage


Dangriga, Belize

8 weeks

Our partner preserves the culture, history and heritage of the Garifuna people (Garinagu), indigenous to Belize and Central America. They advocate for their rights and opportunities and promote inter-racial harmony within Belize.

You will begin with an internal review of their existing financial procedures, systems and controls. You will be making recommendations for best practice that are appropriate to the resources and capacity of the team, starting to implement some of these and providing training so staff can maintain the changes. You will also be creating a financial procedures manual to accurately document their new system. They are submitting their documents for the 2018 audit at the end of May and have outstanding changes to implement form the 2017 audit report.

Their Office Manager is keeping basic records on excel and QuickBooks which are sent to an external accountant for preparation. The President has an accounting background but does not have the time to spend on finance, she has given some training to the Office Manager but he will benefit from further coaching to build his capacity. You will also be working with the Treasurer who works part time.
