East & Central Africa Inter-Agency Finance Group
This group was created in August 2011 to facilitate learning and to develop and share good practice in financial management and accountability of NGOs in East and Central Africa. The group has a Steering Committee of NGO professionals who are all living and working in East and Central Africa and who determine the membership criteria, and consult members about key prorities and activities.
Many of Mango's Register members (Finance professionals working in NGOs who get career advice and support from Mango) are also members of this group.
Membership and How to Join
You need to be working for an NGO involved in development or humanitarian work in East or Central Africa and be committed to strengthening the financial management and accountability of NGOs.
The group communicates via a Linked-in group. You can apply to join the Linked-in group here.
A key priority of the group is developing collective action by NGOs to prevent bribery and corruption.
Mango is holding its first ever Confernce in Nairobi with the title NGOs don't pay bribes. This aims to equip delegates with a thorough understanding of anti-bribery principles as well as the practical tools and confidence to implement a zero tolerance strategy in their NGOs. You can find out more information here.
Mango previously held an Anti-bribery workshop in Nairobi on 12 July 2011. Download the report from here. The ideas and determination of the NGOs that participated in that workshop have inspired Mango's subsequent work on anti-bribery.
