Mango, 13 May 2005
Who Counts? is an initiative by Mango, a UK registered charity. Mango exists to help NGOs strengthen their financial management by providing training, carefully selected finance staff and guides to good practice.
Mango is encouraging NGO staff to provide financial reports to their beneficiaries. Evidence shows that it increases NGOs' impact, because beneficiaries can use this information to make sure that funds are spent on their real priorities. It can be really fundamental, transforming achievements on the ground.
Please have a look at Who Counts. It's very short, providing notes on: case studies, background information and notes on how to put it into practice. Mango recommends that all NGOs consider providing financial reports to their beneficiaries.
Mango hopes to build the campaign, and provide more support to NGO staff - as well aspotentially working with donors on this, which could be an important step forwards. But to do more, they need to show that it is something that people support. So if you support what they are doing, please sign-up on the website and send this email on to your contacts.
