Our Rwandan partner supports children’s education through the provision of school fees, school materials and medical care. They are looking for an experienced Accountant to provide further training and strategic support to their team.

Their support also extends to the children’s families through income generating projects such as a farming cooperative, which supports widows, young mothers and those who have been in prison and have been released because either they were suspected of the genocide or completed their sentence.

You will be reviewing their progress, checking the accounts and continue provide training as necessary, especially to prepare the financial statements at the end of the year and donor reporting. This will be a good point in their financial year to help them closing the books for year-end, as well as making sure they are well set for the next year.

Additionally, our partner is expecting to be inspected by the local government (department of NGOs) in January 2020. Therefor they have asked for a volunteer to perform an internal audit on the organization and work together with Joseph to make sure that all accounts and procedures are in place and compliant.

Affordable accommodation provided.
