About Us

AfID offers accountants from around the world the opportunity to use their skills to support a broad range of non-profit organisations globally. Volunteer assignments of between 2 weeks and 12 months, or longer permanent placements, form part of an ongoing strategy to build the financial management and reporting capacity of charities in over 50 countries.

AfID have now arranged volunteer assignments for over 1200 accountants, who have given over 250,000 hours of one to one support to more than 500 non-profit partners.

These organisations, which include street kid centres, health clinics and rural schools are doing amazing work to tackle extreme poverty and inequality but are unable to access to these vital skills and services.

Our volunteers provide impartial, non-judgemental one to one support; coaching local people on all matters relating to the organisations finances. This may include budget preparation and analysis, the review and implementation of controls, internal and external reporting, the creation of financial procedures manuals and audit preparation.

The advanced technical and professional profile of our volunteers combined with the specific and universal nature of their objectives means real results can be achieved in a far shorter timeframe than that of traditional voluntary placements. This means volunteering is now a realistic prospect for employed, career minded accountants.
