A former office manager of a global architectural charity organization has pleaded guilty to charges of fraud and false accounting.

Article 25 has ongoing projects in Nepal, a country devastated by an earthquake in April 2015.

Golding admitted on Monday (Nov. 2) in Thames Magistrates’ Court, London, to taking the funds, Architects Journal reported.

His sentencing is set for Dec. 17. Case documents were not immediately available for review Tuesday (Nov. 3)

Article 25 Emergency Campaign

Golding served as Article 25’s office manager and bookkeeper.

Based in the U.K., Article 25, provides architectural, engineering and construction services to areas affected by disaster as well as vulnerable communities. Current projects include work in Haiti, Nepal and Myanmar.

The organization faced insolvency in the wake of the financial discovery. However, after an emergency funding campaign, the organization raised £130,000 ($200,189 USD) to replace some of the missing funds.
