Accountants help rebuild Kosovo
Accountants are proving their worth in war-torn Kosovo as they ensure that sound financial management keeps the humanitarian effort rolling, a feature in the British newspaper, The Guardian, explains.
The report looks at the work of those who are willing to give their skills to ensure a brighter future in areas of extreme need.
Accountancy skills are being increasingly recognised as essential to this type of work, so that supplies and wages are delivered in the most effective manner possible.
Finding the right person for the job as pertinent as ever, and this is where MANGO (Management Accounting for Non-Governmental Organisations) comes in, the newspaper reports. This group is helping voluntary organisations achieve the success their efforts deserve by placing the right staff in the right place.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
