  • 15. CGICE Finance and Administration Advisor (Volunteer) I am a fifty-year-old woman who has worked for the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) in the Finance Department at the Zimbabwe Location for seventeen years. The ICRSAT Headquarters are in Hyderabad, India. The success of any donor dependant organization rests heavily on having the right staff with lots of integrity and relevant experience in place at the right time. The continued renewal of my annual contracts at ICRISAT for the past seventeen years bears witness to my honesty, dedication, cumulated knowledge of and apt compliance with different donor requirements. My association with ICRISAT has cultivated in me a strong passion to work with organizations that expound and stand for preservation of humanity. I am a self-motivated person who has gone through informal education to acquire the skills and knowledge that have enabled me to work in the Finance and Purchasing Department of ICRISAT-Bulawayo, an international, agricultural research organization based in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe with Head Offices in Patancheru, India for seventeen years now. In 1996, I became head of the Finance Division and in 1999 the location grew in size from five scientists to twelve without a reciprocal growth in the service department but I have managed to hold the fort. With total responsibility for the financial accounting, fulfilment of donor requirements and observing host government laws, my position at ICRISAT has exposed me to handling big projects under donors like USAID, GTZ, CIDA and DFID. My years at ICRISAT involved me in the running and the successful winding up of the Sorghum and Millet Improvement Programme (SMIP) a huge programme which ran for almost twenty years with the following donor commitments:- USAID - US$40,910,000 CIDA - C$6,781,745 GTZ - DM1, 700,000 DFID - GBP641, 266. ICRISAT still has on going projects under the same donors including the EU and FAO. Founding Director & Trust Chairman: Mr G. Murena (LLM, MBA, LLB (Hons) Law, ACIArb) Trustees: Mr J.
