Local Charity Wins Silver Global Good Award!
ATE, a local charity carrying out fantastic poverty reduction work in rural Ghana, is delighted have won a Global Good Award!
The award is in the category of Community Partnerships, for their innovative BizATE work carried out in partnership with Commercial Education Trust.
Since 2012, BizATE has supported 99 small businesses with seed grants and essential business skills training, the vast majority of whom struggled to survive on subsistence farming and had no income at all prior to participating in the programme. This work aims to end poverty by enabling entrepreneurs of small enterprises to thrive, to generate income, and increase profits and savings in order to provide for themselves and their families, now and sustainably into the future. This project focuses on developing skills in commercial education, to ensure the businesses have every chance of success.
ATE is excited and proud to have been recognised so publicly for this area of poverty reduction work. To find out more about ATE, or to get involved, see http://www.ateghana.org.
