For accountants and Board Members who need to monitor the NGO's finances.

And for stakeholders from the community who also want to learn how to monitor the finances. These individuals, it is assumed, have a few year's schooling and are basically competent with finances – they have managed household budgets; they would start saving if they could; they may have participated in traditional ways of raising small amounts of money such as merry-gorounds (tontines). However, much of the content of this Manual will be new to them.

  • Basic Concepts around Financial Capacity
  • Plans and Budgets
  • Financial Management in detail
  • Includes glossary and bookkeeping tools
