Youth-led Movement Aiming to end unemployment in West Africa

Accommodation & Visa


2 Months

Our partner is a youth-led movement to end unemployment in West Africa through investing in the entrepreneurial ecosystem to ignite social change. They offer training, investment, and support to West African youth. At the core of their work are the principles of local ownership, innovation, cross-sector collaboration, and financial sustainability.

You will be introducing accruals accounting, training staff on the main principles, creating their first balance sheet and updating documentation. You will be improving their project accounting, introducing better filing and coding systems.

You will be helping our partner switch to an international version of QuickBooks which will allow them to use it in French: this unfortunately will require manually transferring all the data over to have everything in one place going forward. Our partner are aware that our volunteers do not have prior fundraising or proposal writing experience but volunteers often help by creating budgets and presenting financial information.

You will be working closely with the Operations Manager, other management and finance staff.
