    Thank You letter
    By - Joe - Communication Manager

Many of our beneficiaries have undergone the full cycle. Kindly share a rare moment with one of our beneficiaries, Abel, a very creative and talented peer...

      Solomon I would like to congratulate ATM for winning some awards. This goes a long way in cementing their committment in serving their communities. I'm also impressed by the large number of beneficiaries they reached, considering their size. I believe this organization is able to reach more people if it gets the right support.

      Clare I find it very encouraging for non-profits to submit reports of how they are fairing since this creates confidence among their supporters. I'm encouraged that the organization has been able to reach many beneficiaries with so little resources. They have my vote of confidence!
