Management Accounting for Non-Governmental Organisations (MANGO)
The Management Accounting for Non-Governmental Organisations (MANGO) is a United Kingdom-based non-governmental organisation (NGO) that helps aid agencies, NGOs and nonprofits to work more effectively. MANGO’s mission is to strengthen the financial management and accountability of NGOs and their partners. MANGO has established a reputation for delivering high quality training, staff recruitment, consultancy and best-practice guides.
MANGO is conducting an online course on ‘Planning for Financial Sustainability’ from 24 October 2016 to 9 December 2016.
This online course focuses on building a financing strategy so that you can achieve your mission and objectives now and in the future. During the eWorkshop, you will discover many useful tools and techniques including:
- The recipe for building a financially secure future for your NGO;
- How to assess and manage the everyday financial risks facing NGOs;
- How to become less dependent on external donors;
- Tips for building a safety net of reserves;
- Ideas on how to finance your central support costs;
- How to create a financing strategy for the next three years.
The course is run over six weeks (2 x 3-week modules), built around a series of themed topics with readings, individual activities and group activities. The activities must be completed within the specified time frame and you can then move on to the next week when you are ready.
Who is it for?
- Senior managers (eg CEOs, programme directors, finance managers) of national NGOs;
- INGO Programme managers who support local partner NGOs;
- INGO country programme managers who are responsible for developing a financing strategy for their programmes;
- May also be suitable for members of local board of trustees (eg Chair and Treasurer).
The training is especially effective is a programme manager and a finance manager from same organisation attend together.
The eWorkshop format is great for fitting the training into busy schedules but you will need to be disciplined to keep up with the work. MANGO estimates that the course work will take you between 5 to 7 hours a week, depending on your pace of learning and your language skills. Participants also need to make sure that they have access to a computer, a printer and the internet during the course.
