Friends of Ngong Road’s operating principles emphasize a strong focus on ensuring that donor investment and trust is well placed and drives measurable outcomes. Given the concern about corruption in Africa, financial accountability has received a great deal of focus from the organization’s U.S. Board members.
2016 Annual Report: I Can!
We are pleased to publish this 2016 Annual Report for Friends of Ngong Road. It is remarkable to realize that January 2017 marked a whole decade of truly satisfying and sometimes quite challenging work that has directly and positively had a profound effect on the lives of more than 400 children and their families. It could not have happened without the faithful and generous support of our sponsors and donors.
Historical Annual Reports:
Each year since 2009, the firm Clifton Larson Allan has audited financial results of Friends of Ngong Road.
Ngong Road Children Association’s (Kenya) financial processes and controls were developed in 2007 by the U.S. co-founder in consultation with a Kenyan audit professional. Those processes have been reviewed by an independent auditor each year in Kenya and in 2011, the U.S. CFO spent a week in Kenya examining our financial processes and making minor modifications. The sister organizations continue to refine their controls and operate with strong financial infrastructure, including sophisticated modeling and forecasting tools that allow leaders to deeply understand the financial levers that drive operations.
