Work one week with each organization and participate in some of their unique programs.
Extensive experience required in Quick Books (or comparable software program) set up and knowledge of Non Profit or NGO needs for recordkeeping and reporting.
A Typical Need by the NGOs
“As the Founding Trustee, Exceutive Director, Teacher, Administrator, Projects Manager and Treasurer of a medium sized NGO I am more than a little overwhelmed with administrative and finance work. I have no financial training and record the accounts on Excel spreadsheets, which is not ideal. I need an accounts package that is tailor-made for NGOs and can easily handle multiple projects, multiple donors, formulate financial reports and statements etc” Director/Chipembele Wildlife Education
