Overview: 

In the course of the project world, we have learnt or experienced several projects that get abandoned prior to their completion. In most cases, this is due to misuse of funds, fraud or generally lacking knowledge of managing donor funds. Communities intended to benefit from such projects continue to suffer whereas funds for their wellbeing have already been disbursed. Knowledge of financial principles and procedures in line with legislation and ethical issues are the panacea to the financial mismanagement problems    associated with donor funded projects. This program is tailor made to further enhance the knowledge of individuals involved in managing or handling of finances of various donor funded projects. Reference will be made to some of the donors such as World Bank, AfDB, BADEA, ADB, IDB, UNDP,GIZ, etc.
