Outback Accounting by iniPax is a program designed for
communities with limited access to educational technologies -
It calls for nothing more than a teacher's script
and a Workbook
for each participant.
For the moment, the teacher's script is in English. The Workbook is
being progressively translated into the languages of
developing nations. The first of these is Khmer, the language of
Cambodia, where the program has already been delivered
to villagers around the ountryside ... the Cambodian Outback.
Far beyond simple book-keeping, the program deals with Profit & Loss, Balance Sheets and Cash Flow statements. Participants then view their work as business analysts to understand the things that give confidence to investors.
Building on these accounting skills, the program moves on to a
template-based business plan: how to tell the Story and
build the Financial Plan.
