Affordable Accommodation

Kasungu, Malawi

2 - 4 Weeks

Our partner is a youth-based CBO operating in the Kasungu district in Malawi. They strive to include youth in meaningful development activities at the district level, ages 10-35. Their projects range from computer skills training to leadership and life skills for youth clubs to be able to fight the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

You will begin with an internal review of their existing accounting procedures, systems and controls. You will be assessing staff capacity and making recommendations for best practice. The Project Accountant and Admin Officer have limited experience and have been learning as they go. You will be identifying any gaps in procedures and knowledge, making improvements and providing training.

The Executive Director has requested that you review the following:

  • Payment and cash request vouchers
  • Audit preparation – they have only had project audits from individual donors before
  • Budget creation and analysis
  • Internal controls
  • Annual reports and budgets – they are currently producing quarterly reports for donors but do not produce one for the whole organisation
  • Monthly management reporting
