AfID offers accountants from around the world the opportunity to use their skills to support a broad range of non-profit organisations globally. Volunteer assignments of between 2 weeks and 12 months, or longer permanent placements, form part of an ongoing strategy to build the financial management and reporting capacity of charities in over 35 countries.
Our partners, which are a blend of international charities and grassroot community based organisations such as street child centres, hospitals, micro-finance organisations, conservation projects, women’s empowerment programmes and schools, are all doing amazing work to tackle extreme poverty and inequality in their communities but due to their limited resources are unable to access vital accounting and financial management training.
The main focus of all AfID assignments is to develop and enhance the skills, confidence and potential of local people, enabling the organisations to ultimately have the financial management capacity they need to deliver more effective and sustainable programmes to their many beneficiaries whilst maintain good relations with their donors. Volunteers could be budgeting with a street child centre in Kampala, coaching a hospital bookkeeper in Kigali or financial reporting for a primary school in Kathmandu.
The advanced technical and professional profile of our volunteers, combined with the specific and universal nature of their objectives, ensures good continuity from one volunteer to the next and means real results can be achieved in a far shorter timeframe than that of traditional voluntary placements. This means volunteering is now a realistic prospect for employed, career minded professionals.
AfID is now supporting over 350 charities and non-profit organisations in 50 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America. Since our inception in 2009 we have placed over 650 volunteer accountants, taking the total hours of pro-bono financial management coaching to over 150,000 which equates to almost £10 Million worth of professional services.
