“In June of 2014 we were very fortunate to welcome an accounting specialist volunteer from AFID UK . This is the 2nd time that KCDI has the privilege of receiving an AFID accounting specialist.
Coming all the way from England she helped train our staff (Mr Sambo, Mrs Sun Saymom and Mr Sothy) in accounting procedures and book-keeping.
Training KCDI staff using simple and efficient computer programs to be autonomous, transparent and efficient in day to day accounting and budgeting, our AFID volunteer has laid the ground for strengthening KCDI and making it into a more professional organization and empowering our Cambodian staff.
Our volunteer from AFID also helped check and put in order KCDI accounting from 2013 until June 2014. Assisting our AFID volunteer, one of our Board members and her husband also helped train our staff. Our Board treasurer also approved the new developments within KCDI.
KCDI staff feel very fulfilled at learning new skills and we are very grateful to our AFID volunteer for coming so far away to assist our school.”
“Our residential children will be visiting their villages for the summer break from 13th July until 10th August. Our school will be closed to performances and to visitors until 11th August.”
