Treasurer for IREAD: Bringing early learning to children in Uganda and Pakistan
Board terms are 2 years
Imagine your child starting elementary school never having seen a book. Studies show this puts children at a significant disadvantage during the most formative years of their lives. IREAD gives these most vulnerable children the chance to grow and develop through play and activity-based learning and an early start at building a brighter future. For more than a decade, IREAD has partnered with local community leaders and NGOs in rural Uganda and Northern Pakistan to unlock the potential of children aged 3 to 6 most impacted by poverty. IREAD builds early childhood development (ECD) centres, develops curriculum and trains teachers, and supports the community to operate and manage their ECD centre. By the end of 2021, IREAD will have built 29 ECD centres (16 in Uganda and 13 in Northern Pakistan), and donations have been secured to build a further 2 centres. About 3,000 children receive early learning through IREAD each year. We are seeking a director to take on the Secretary/Treasurer role. We would like to hear from people familiar with charity accounting and financial management. As our work is done in other countries, knowledge of Canada Revenue Agency guidelines that impact charities working internationally is desired. The IREAD board is supported by an Executive Director, a professional bookkeeper, and a Uganda-based CPA.
