Charity providing opportunities through education and sport [113]
Pro bono 
Zambia 
Up to 4 weeks
Our partner uses the love of football to reach over 2,200 children through their community projects, including 120 who receive daily support through their football academy, with programmes covering education, sexual health and HIV awareness.
They have grown considerably over the last few years from a team of 8 in 2019 to 16 in 2022. They now manage multiple grants to deliver new projects. As they have grown, they have realised the need for an improvement in their financial systems to be able to effectively manage and report on the external funding they have received.
Having received a AfID in-person in early 2023, they now require a follow up placement where a volunteer will provide support in the following areas:

  • Review their use of Quickbooks, supporting them in making any accounting corrections, and also in making the most of the software.
  • Coach them in undertaking bank reconciliations, and in undertaking old bank reconciliations, bringing these up to date.
  • They have requested support in taking the lead on consolidating the accounts of the three entities so that management can get a complete picture of the finances and financial health of the whole organisation. Part of your work will also be to develop templates/tools to help them manage this process themselves going forward.
  • They are looking to decentralise finance responsibilities, and are keen on more involvement from Project Officers. They would like coaching for them to understand the importance of proper record keeping, project budgeting and reporting.
  • Undertake a review of their grant systems and support improvements to improve accuracy of grant reporting.
