ATE is a small, dynamic charity fighting poverty in Lawra, a rural community in Upper West Ghana. ATE enables children to access education, sets up sustainable small businesses, and supports marginalised disabled children.
ATE does this through working in partnership with the local community and key stakeholders (such as GES & GHS) on three key programmes of work.
EducATE– to enable children to access and complete a full course of education. BizATE – to create and encourage sustainable income generation for small business owners through grants, training and mentoring. Special Needs Awareness Programme (SNAP) – to challenge discrimination of children with special needs and their families, and to provide emotional, educational, and practical support to enable them to achieve their full potential and to access opportunities and services.
