___________________________________

Based in the luscious tea country hills of central Sri Lanka, our partner supports disadvantaged young people from the tea estates with access to education and training. They are seeking a volunteer to review their progress implementing new accounting software and provide further training to local staff.

The communities in the tea estates live in impoverished, overcrowded and unsafe conditions and are at risk of malnutrition, violence, high mortality rates and limited access to basic education. The organisation believe that young people should have equal opportunities to develop and succeed, regardless of where they are born, their ethnicity or who their family is and strive to use education as a tool for social change through their education centres and social enterprises.

You will be reviewing their progress with the new systems and procedures, supporting them with any additional training and guidance as needed and ensuring they have the capacity and understanding to maintain this.
