Accounting Volunteer Opportunities in Africa




Global Mamas creates sustainable livelihoods for women in Africa by promoting their traditional skills in the production of fair trade products. As our women realize financial security through our programs, they need assistance to develop or improve their accounting skills to manage their growing income. There are many ways in which we could put your accounting skills to use:

  • Teach women entrepreneurs basic accounting skills.
  • Evaluate existing accounting records kept by our more number savvy entrepreneurs and help them improve or simplify their records.
  • Help Global Mamas with various accounting projects that improve the financial management of the organization.
