RsA Asia - Accounting for International Development

Aware of and willing to contribute to the socially-oriented goals of Accounting for International Development (AfID), RsA Asia now joins AfID to help the provision of accounting services for communities that face economic struggles and need advise from certified accountants.

AfID ( is an organisation that offers accountants from around the world the opportunity to use their skills to globally support a broad range of non-profit organisations. Their ongoing strategy is to build the financial management capacity of charities and this guides the operations of AfID in all 50 countries in which it operates. This area mainly includes South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, where the percentage of the population which lives in extreme poverty reaches 41% and 57%, respectively (World Bank).

AfID’s partners are international NGOs, hospitals, micro-finance organisations, conservation projects, women’s empowerment programmes and schools. These partners fight against extreme poverty and inequality in their communities but due to their limited resources are unable to access vital accounting and financial management training.

The main focus of all AfID assignments is to develop and enhance the skills, confidence and potential of local people. This will enable organisations to ultimately have the financial management capacity they need to deliver more effective and sustainable programmes to their many beneficiaries while maintaining good relations with their donors.

RsA ( will contribute to the promotion of AfID jobs in the countries where it operates. This will be achieved through the network of accounting companies and periodical events where the achievements and projects of AfID will be shared.
