NGO using sport and play to educate and empower children

Affordable accommodation

Jinja, Uganda

2-6 weeks

Our partner tackles poverty, conflict and disease by using sport and play to educate and empower young people. They require strategic guidance as they look to build the capacity of their finance function.

The use of sport for peace and development is well founded in the sector and our partner uses this powerful tool to affect positive social change and gender balance. You will be the first AfID volunteer to support them and as such will begin with an internal review of their current accounting procedures, systems and controls, taking into consideration the resources and capacity of the team.

You will be working primarily with the Executive Director and Finance & Admin Manager, as well as the Project Coordinators to review and improve their financial management processes. They require particular support in improving the communication between finance, management and programmes teams.

This assignment requires a volunteer comfortable providing 1:1 coaching to management teams, and advising on best practice.
