Admittedly, we cannot offer paid full-time positions. Our budget is too small for this, as every euro donated should benefit the children who are cared for by Children Safe Uganda.
On the other hand, we also have tasks to perform that cost time and energy. And there are fewer and fewer employees who are regularly committed to these tasks and have to carry more and more burdens. If it is to be possible to continue running the association in the future, we need practical support.
If you are interested in joining, please contact the board members.
Here are the areas of responsibility where we need help the most:
Chief Financial Officer (CFO)
For all matters concerning the finances of the association, we need a person with basic knowledge of accounting.
The treasurer is a member of the executive board. Willingness to communicate with the association on an ongoing basis through mandatory attendance at board meetings, general meetings, association birthdays and other events, as well as regular email contact with the other board members is the most important requirement.
In addition, the CFO is the liaison person to external partners such as banking institution, tax advisor, tax office, etc. that are necessary for the operational handling of financial tasks.
Apart from a few monthly tasks, bookkeeping is basically carried out at quarterly intervals. This includes posting the bank statements, carrying out direct debits and transfers to the Ugandan partner organization Children Safe Uganda as well as other creditors. At the beginning of each year, the treasurer should have sufficient time capacity to prepare the annual financial statements, have them audited and send out the donation receipts. Knowledge of English would be desirable.
Future for Bweya's Children e.V. has its own software as well as staff to assist with routine tasks.
The secretary is responsible for invitations to and taking notes of general meetings as well as board meetings. In the board he has the status of an assessor without executive responsibility.
The tasks also include the formulation of fundamental documents such as changes in the statutes, guidelines, contracts.
Willingness to communicate with the association on an ongoing basis through mandatory attendance at board meetings, general meetings, association birthdays and other events, as well as regular email contact with other board members is the most important requirement.
