A local NGO focused on Women’s economic empowerment received funding to skill underprivileged women in the areas of fashion designs, computer skills and arts and crafts among others. BLEGSCOPE was contracted to support the management in the initial stages of programs’ implementation.
From the onset, BLEGSCOPE were involved in setting up the systems for management accounting and reporting and procurement. The key role was hand-holding the management team thorough their duties. An implementation plan was conducted for six months when the management team was comfortable to conduct their duties diligently with minimal external support.
This helped the NGO focus on their main objective of promoting other self-help activities amongst the community in which it operated through offering of training on tailoring, book-keeping and accounting, and computer training for school leavers.
