NGO providing quality education and health services to communities

Homestay options

Lusaka, Zambia

2-4 weeks

Our partner has the aim to provide quality education and health services to communities in Zambia, Laos, India and Morocco. They are currently operating mainly in Zambia and Laos. Their key educational projects are delivered through the improvement of infrastructure and provision of teaching aids in schools as well as by sponsoring children and young adults in their schooling.

You will review their processes and controlsin light of their plans to start running a safehouse and learning centre. You will mostly focus on implementing an accounting system.

They are seeking a volunteer to review their implementation of Quickbooks. They have several questions around the coding and classification of entries, and want someone external to review how they have fared with the implementation. They would also like you to support them in streamlining processes (where this is possible), and in regularly analysing their income & expenditure, cashflow and meet their reporting requirements. They would like further guidance with financial planning, budget vs actual and cost analysis.
