Environmental NGO aimed at improving quality of life through natural resources

Accommodation provided

Honduras

4-6 weeks

Our partner is an environmental NGO aimed at improving the quality of life in the communities through the protection and sustainable management of natural resources, citizen participation and interinstitutional strategic partnerships.

You will begin with an internal review of their existing financial procedures, systems and controls and making recommendations for best practice, according to their resources and capacity, providing training to the local staff as needed. They have been using QuickBooks since 2017 and feel they are not yet making the most of the system, and requested your support in improving the functionality of the system and provide further training.

As of February 2019 our partner entered into a process aimed at exploring the establishment of social enterprises whose profits - as established by Honduran law - must be transferred to the NGO to cover its fixed costs, programs and projects. This process requires the modernization of the organization's accounting system, specifically in aspects of bookkeeping and reconciliation, preparation of budgets and financial planning, assistance with implementation procedures, cash flow forecasting and cash management, and review and development of local income-generating activities, among others. They would need more support in adjusting and setting up their financial structure and system to meet this initiative.

Fluent Spanish is required.
