The Capacity Building Unit of the AWDF has recently developed a series of technical support programmes in response to the various organisational development needs of grantees and women’s rights organisations in Africa.
The first in the series was a ‘Financial Management Training for Finance Managers and Officers,’ held in February 2014 in Nairobi, Kenya. In collaboration with Orwa & Company Associates, an accounting firm in Nairobi who currently provide pro-bono financial support services to selected AWDF’s grantees in Kenya, AWDF co-designed a programme seeking to enhance the financial management capacity of grantee organizations.
The 3 day training event brought together 17 finance managers and officers from 17 grantee organisations in Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda. Issues highlighted included budget and cash flow projections, financial management in context, grant management, internal controls and internal checks, compliance to statutory requirements, and financial reporting among others.
