Charity supporting Project-Based Learning in Brazilian schools

Accommodation & Visa

Recife, Brazil

6 weeks

Our partner aims to create the environment by which children can meet their full potential, supporting their teachers and wider society to achieve key educational goals.

They are small in size and while they have complete financial records, their system is still basic. They are currently seeking legal advice on tax requirements and are taking steps to make sure they are meeting compliance.

You will begin with a review of their current financial procedures, controls and system. You will be reviewing staff capacity and resources and making recommendations for best practice that increase efficiency and are appropriate to their need. They would need support developing the following procedures:

  • Creating, monitoring and analysing budgets
  • Financial controls
  • Creating financial statements
  • Preparing for external audit
  • Chart of Accounts

You may also identify further gaps in your review. You will be determining a priority list which can be continued by a second volunteer if time does not permit during your placement. You will provide training and documentation on any new procedures introduced.
