Organization helping families affected by HIV/AIDS and poverty

Accommodation & Visa

Bagamoyo, Tanzania

4-6 weeks

Our partner helps children and families affected by HIV/AIDS and poverty, providing educational, social and psychosocial support and through it changing lives.

You will begin with an internal review of their accounting procedures, systems and controls, making recommendations for best practice while taking into account the local context, needs, capacity and resources of the local team. You will start implementing the recommendations, in order of priority as decided together with the team, while also providing training to staff.

There are 2 sets of accounts - one for the farm and children’s home and another for the school - both managed by the same person, who is using Excel and would benefit from the review, training and further recommendations of a qualified and experienced accountant, to streamline the processes and make it more efficient. Our partner has also requested your support on budgeting.

You will also be working with their bookkeeper who has been helping our partner remotely by managing the QuickBooks account. Her current activities throughout the year cover: reconciling Bank Statements, reconciling Accounts Receivable, updating sponsorship records, preparing the Annual Budget for 2019, communication and following up on outstanding payments. She would benefit from your support in streamlining the accounts and further training in QuickBooks and budgeting.
