This Online Financial Sustainability and Resilience Training is part of IMA International's Online Sustainable Finance course, which is a 6-module online programme designed for managers and other staff who need to use financial skills in their work, but are not trained accountants. They may be working internationally in NGOs, government, UN agencies or private sector.
The course comprises of 6 modules which can be taken individually, or grouped together. Each module starts with the basics, and together they build a thorough working knowledge of financial management in international development organisations.
These uncertain times are challenging for all of us working in the international development sector. It may be because of a sharp decline in donations, restrictions on our fundraising, or donors who no longer have enough funds available to help us. We cannot predict the overall impact that these global events will have on our organisations, or indeed our own colleagues and communities, but there are tools available to maximise the resources we still have. Many of the issues we are facing require us to have accurate and up-to-date financial information, and to use it in our decision-making to make the best use of current and future funding.
We use a mixture of interactive approaches. The online guided learning includes audio and video recordings with facilitator input, pair discussions (optional), group work (optional) and individual activities. Each module provides you with the practical skills not only to know how the numbers are calculated, but also how to use financial information and systems in decision-making.
You will learn to use the techniques in your own organisation and with partners, and so see better decision-making and programme impact. Each module includes a range of tools and materials to use in your organisation’s activities. When you complete 3 or more modules you will receive the book Building Financial Management Capacity for NGOs and Community Organisations, written by John Cammack.
IMA International facilitators will guide and mentor your learning process, providing you with:
