Workshop on Good Governance for NGOs: Getting your Activism and Advocacy Right


Today, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) are playing an increasingly important role in crucial areas of our day-to-day lives. From initiating activities to improve our neighbourhoods, to leading initiatives to help disadvantaged sections, even raising the flag about wrongdoings by government departments and business entities, NGOs have made a significant difference in several areas. As the activities and influence of these groups grows, it is crucial that they adopt rules and practices that will help them to be more effective and transparent in their work. Dr Gautam Shah, a practicing Chartered Accountant who has dealt with charitable institutions for several years, will give a financial perspective on accounting, tax, audits and related areas for NGOs at a workshop hosted by Moneylife Foundation.

This will be conducted by Dr Gautam Navin Shah . Gautam Shah is a 46-year-old practising chartered accountant. He also holds a PhD in Business Finance where the topic of his thesis was "Management of Charitable Institutions - a Financial Perspective". He is Managing Partner of Gautam Shah & Associates, Chartered Accountants. His key areas of practice are tax, audits and issues related to charitable NGOs.

This workshop will benefit all NGOs as well as their employees and volunteers. This is our second workshop for NGOs, after the one in July which was a resounding success. You might want to share this invitation with friends in other NGOs so they could benefit from this initiative also.
