WVV ADP Bookkeeper-Son Tay ADP

Job Description


WVV’s Area Development Programs (ADPs) focus within one administrative district of a province which usually populated by ethnic minority people with very high rates of poverty. ADPs are mainly funded by sponsorship funds, and are a phased approach to development, involving clear and consistent assessment, design, and implementing, reporting, monitoring and evaluation and reflection phases. Each ADP is tailored to the needs of a specific community in alignment with WVV’s strategic priorities. WVV works closely with district and commune local authorities and local partners to implement program activities. A uniqueness of WVV’s ADP approach and structure is that team members are based at district level where the ADP is located, which enables them to work closely with government partners and communities on a daily basis.

The current ADP structure is based on sectoral approach with one staff in charge of one sectoral project. Since FY11, WVV have applied the Development Program Approach and revised its ADP structure. Under each ADP, there are from 6 to 8 staff, including 1 ADP manager, 1 Sponsorship Facilitator, 1 Finance Officer/Bookkeeper, 1 ADP Coordinator and 2-4 Development Facilitators (DFs) who are in charge of all projects and programme activities for around 2 assigned communes/wards in their ADP (from assessment to planning, implementation, monitoring, evaluation and transition). For each cluster (3-5 ADPs), there are 4 technical cluster staff: Health/ WASAN/ HIV/AIDS; Education; Agriculture/ Economic Development; DME/Capacity Building. DFs will be coached by the ADP Manager programmatically and by the technical cluster staff technically. One of the strengths of this structure is to allow better integration of the program toward Child-Well-being Outcomes.
