Accounting for International Development offers every type of accountant, from anywhere in the world, the opportunity to use their skills to support a broad range of non-profit organisations globally.

Our partner is a social enterprise that supports rural Cambodian artisan women to develop a stable, fair and sustainable income. The artisans develop high quality rattan products such as baskets, bags, lamps, and small furniture, being carefully trained and mentored  in order to empower their creativity and knowledge, thus sharing this ancient craft by adapting it to the demands of the modern market.

You will begin with an internal review, similar to an internal audit. You will then make and start to implement your recommendations for best practice, developing financial procedures, internal controls and systems, based on the complexity of the organisation’s accounting, the resources available to them and skillset of local staff.

They have requested our support to help develop a robust and basic finance management system in light of financial growth in the last year, with focus on budget preparation, forecasting, financial planning and analysis.

As a social enterprise, they do not have institutional donors or grants and at the moment will benefit from guidance on business development as well as compliance, creating a simple structure for bookkeeping and financial management, to make sure they are well set-up and prepared for further growth.

Affordable accommodation provided.
