ATE Chandra Foundation (ATECF) works closely with nonprofits and governments to design and scale solutions that impact the most marginalised populations. They focus on two key areas: (i) social sector capacity building (building the capacity of professionals, organisations, and the ecosystem to create a stronger and more resilient nonprofit sector) and (ii) sustainable rural development (addressing key rural issues and investing in rejuvenation of water bodies and natural farming activities).
