Building Capacity through Financial Management
Who would find this resource useful?
It is written for non-government organisations (NGOs), larger community-based organisations (CBOs), and charities. For organisations with established systems, it provides challenging questions, both for their
own organisation and for the way in which they work with others. It is hoped that the book will be used by chairs and members of management committees, leaders, directors, managers, programme staff, administrators, and finance staff. It is a tool for large NGOs and donors working with their partner CBOs and NGOs. The content can also be used in training courses.
