INGO Capabilities
We at Horwath MAK, with our extensive experience, appreciate the fact that the
International Non Governmental Organizations (INGOs) have unique and special issues
in auditing and reporting. INGOs have to meet the increasing legislative and regulatory
demands in both the UAE and overseas. Working in demanding environments, INGOs

United States Agency for International Development (USAID), United Nations Development
Programme (UNDP), US Department of States and based on that experience we are able
to deploy teams with relevant experience of the operating environment and the issues
that face them.
Our clients work all over the world and we are able to provide coverage in the remote
locations. Our specialist teams work with INGOs across Africa and Asia.
