    » Encourage local partners to drive the work. Use our experience and links with other partners and organisations to strengthen their ability to do this

    What success will look like

    Success will be by building partnerships through monitoring and evaluation procedures

  • Impact


    Thousands of people will improve their lives by setting up their own small enterprises or increased opportunities for employment, empowering them to provide for their families.

    Enabling capacity to be built with local partners to sustain impact, whether as NGOs or within the private sector, is incorporate as a key element of our work


    When grants from Comic Relief or The Big Lottery for specific projects have ended, it is difficult to raise unrestricted funds to continue to develop and expand the projects to help many more people.

    APT is developing its fundraising to secure unrestricted donations to enable projects to be further developed


    Through emails, newsletters and mailings and by giving news of development on our website and through social media
