Our partner offers young people in Laos a chance to meet their potential, learn and develop through education and literacy, by creating and supporting libraries in underdeveloped areas.
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 identified a specific need and challenge in making a better use of their accounting system, which currently is on Excel: it is very time consuming and not efficient, and as they are preparing for a second book-launch next year, they want to make sure they have a better system in place. You will assess, recommend and support in implementing a better system that can integrate accounting, sales and database management, able to automatize the work. They are members of TechSoup and will have access to software at reduced prices, but they need your support in selecting the appropriate software and then receive training to make sure they are utilising it appropriately.
Affordable accommodation and stipend provided.
