APT ACTION ON POVERTY
APT transforms the lives of thousands of poor and vulnerable people by helping them to help themselves. We give them the skills to work in or start up their own small enterprises so that they can generate an income for their basic needs such as food and medicine and education for their children. APT also promotes social change so that disadvantaged people, such as disabled men and women and those affected by HIV/AIDS, can participate fully in society and become useful members of their communities.The impact of our work is long-term, restoring dignity and building self-reliance.
