Our Impact

93% of our partners felt Atma was able to identify and help resolve key challenges that their organisations faced

90% of our partners attributed the development of their key systems and processes to Atma's Accelerator

85% of partner organisations were specifically satisfied or very satisfied with the support of the consultants.

"The biggest impact is the trust we have built. Our first call or e-mail by default, is to Atma. The best part is that in the 3 years of Accelerator support, we didn't feel like Atma was mentoring us. It felt as if Atma was a part of Apni Shala, helping us at every step."

"Atma webinar session on 'Disaster Management' has been one of the best webinars I have attended. It gave us a preventive approach to Disaster Management within NGOs! I am bursting with ideas and possibilities- something that I was facing with dread and uncertainty has become an opportunity for growth and innovative solutions. Thank you immensely!"
