Organization supporting visually impaired people
Belize City, Belize
Our partner has been providing support to people who are blind for over 30 years, providing rehabilitation, daily living skills and orientation and mobility services. The organisation also provides education support to blind children in regular school’s system by teaching braille and producing braille texts, computer skills and provision of adaptive aids.
You will support the organization to implement the new software QuickBooks Pro for the entire organization. The partner plans to purchase and install the new software before you arrive, and replace in all their clinics the current QB Point of Sale with an uniform integrated QB Pro. You will support them with creating/updating the Chart of Accounts and implementing the new system to the highest functionality, to include and apply to all departments, as well as training the local team to utilise it correctly. There might be an opportunity to travel to their offices outside Belize City to provide further training in utilizing the new system, which they will confirm depending on the volunteer’s availability.
The partner will also like your support in designing a process that will allow them to understand, capture and analyse all their in kind income, and a system to allow them to cost accurately all their activities and services, in order to better estimate expenses and assign value to contributions.
You will also be reviewing their progress and continue training and provide recommendations as needed: they would benefit from further expert advice on strengthening income generation and sustainability.
