It is a pleasure to reach out to you again and share a round-up of this month’s activities. One of my highlights for the last month was meeting with our Country Champions. I am always inspired by their energy and creativity, and I know their invaluable local knowledge and networks will help the project succeed.
We host free online events tailored to your time zone and language. These events aim to create awareness about the IFR4NPO project and highlight the important role that our international stakeholders play in achieving consistent reporting in the sector. As well as registering for upcoming events, you can access the recordings and resources from past events.
If you are keen to follow the technical details, you can! The meetings of the technical and practitioner advisory groups (TAG and PAG) are fully transparent. You can see agendas, meeting papers, discussion summaries and a recording.
Recently, Humentum IFR4NPO Project Director, Samantha Musoke, shared her personal view on the issue of key figures in NPO financial statements. Her opinion is shaped by 21 years of experience in engaging with stakeholders in Uganda and across Africa.
She said: ‘Financial statements have evolved to meet the needs of investors and the for-profit world. As Humentum and CIPFA develop guidance for non-profit organisations through the IFR4NPO project, we have an amazing opportunity to rethink what are the ‘important numbers’ for our sector.’

As you continue your own vital contribution to the work of the sector, we’ll be busy preparing the first tranche of the Exposure Draft for release in November.
I look forward to connecting with you next month!
