BCom (Hons), BS
Kwetu Training Centre for Sustainable Development
I am the Finance and Resource Mobilisation Officer at Kwetu Training Centre for Sustainable Development (Kwetu).
My primary role is to support the organisation in its long-term strategic planning by: updating their strategic plan; identifying potential donors; and writing proposals for funding. I also have a responsibility to support the accountant in devising a budget tracking tool and ensure the financial procedures are followed and implemented.
Kwetu is well placed as the only NGO in the Kenyan coast that is engaging communities in mangrove conservation and providing training in alternative livelihood methods.
The challenge now for Kwetu is to best position itself to rise to that potential - I hope to help them in that process by providing some of the essential organisational infrastructure and helping them mobilise resources so that their activities are sustainable.
