Taking the Fear out of NGO Finance:self-study pack

There is very little local affordable, good quality, tailored NGO financial management training available in developing countries. Access to Mango training is often limited by cost and geography. Mango's Big Idea is to develop free self-study packs to assist those unable to attend our courses.

Situation

Small NGOs often lack the financial skills to work in an efficient, effective, sustainable and accountable way. There is very little affordable, good quality, tailored NGO financial management training available in developing countries and access to Mango training is often limited by cost and geography. Mango's free plain language self-study packs will assist staff in small NGOs to develop key financial management skills at their own pace that they can apply confidently in their organisations.

Solution

By making Mango's financial management resources more easily accessible to many more thousands of NGO staff, we will achieve real results in building their skills and confidence. This has a direct impact in improving efficiency, effectiveness and accountability and ultimately enables NGOs to do more with every pound they are given. They can support more communities, dig more wells and – in the extreme case – save more lives.
