NGO providing contraception in remote communities & urban slums [590]

Flights, Accommodation and Stipend provided

DRC, Africa

3-4 Weeks

Our partner helps women to have children by choice, not chance, by providing contraception and safe abortion to women in urban and rural communities across the world. They require support in preparing their annual financial statements.

Their programme in the DRC is their newest, offering services from late 2018. Almost 90% of Congolese women are unable to access any modern method, of contraception, and those who can are largely restricted to short-term methods such as condoms. Their team of mobile midwives and nurses provide services centred around Kinshasa, and the neighbouring province of Tshopo.

As a long-established INGO they do already have structures, procedures and systems in place, but are in need of a volunteer to provide targeted support in the areas of annual financial statement preparation, balance sheet schedules, and preparing for the annual audit. There is also the opportunity to provide additional training to the local finance team.

This assignment will offer excellent exposure to a volunteer seeking to explore the possibility of changing careers and transitioning into the international not for profit sector.
