Action Through Enterprise - ATE

It's #smallcharityweek2021 - from14th-19th June!
As a super small but mighty and impactful charity, we're proud to have supported 2,000+ children to access education, 100+ small business owners, and hundreds of disabled children and families, as well as many members of the wider community in Lawra, Ghana.

Small Charity Week celebrates and raises awareness of the vital work of small charities, like ours, which make an invaluable contribution to communities in the UK and around the world.

Amid the pressures of the pandemic and cuts to UK Aid, it has never been more vital to stand up for the small charity sector. On the Working Group for the Small International Development Charities Network (SIDCN) is ATE's Programme and Development Manager, Leela Shanti. SIDCN is a coalition of small charities working overseas, which have come together to amplify the voice of our sector and the communities we serve.
