Human Rights NGO Supporting Indigenous Communities
Accommodation provided (Spanish required)
Based in Peru’s ancient capital, Lima, this human rights organization is dedicated to defending and promoting justice on behalf of communities affected by different forms of injustice in Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia. They are seeking a volunteer to review their accounting systems and provide training support to their local team.
Their work includes support to indigenous communities of the Amazon and the Andean regions of Peru, children affected by various forms of violence and trafficking and families affected by the internal armed conflict. The organisation has requested the support of an AfID volunteer to support the Farm in Huánuco. The income from the farm is reinvested in the women’s shelter, which provides support to girls and women who were victims of sexual violence.
You will be undertaking an assessment of their current systems processes and controls and making & implementing recommendations for best practice; visiting establishments in the city that sell similar products to review and update the farm’s business plan; projecting farm income for up to three years and the investment needed; developing a work plan with priority activities for the first year and economic proposals of the highest priority and providing training to the administrator to improve accountability.
