What we do

ATIA’s priority is to sustainably increase the vulnerable families’ income. As the difficulties that these families face tend to be interdependent, ATIA follows a holistic approach. It is implemented through individual guidance and integrated activities encouraging access to employment, through three main sectors:

Autonomy, improvement of family revenue and access to employment

Contribute to the beneficiaries’ autonomy by encouraging:

> employment (access to training and work placement),

> self-employment (creation and development of income-generating activities through productive loans and business coaching),

> financial-literacy training and savings services.


Disease prevention and access to care to prevent economic development from being hindered by health issues:

> Health mutual funds (facilitate access to care for families through a micro health-insurance scheme with social health services),

> Referrals to a network of selected health providers, to ensure quality and cut costs for patients,

> Prevention of common diseases through IEC activities (Information, Education and Communication).

Overcome the isolation of marginalised families

Start the socio-economic progress of the poorest families by building their capacities and reinforcing their access to basic social services (health, education, legal documents, family planning…).

Support the psychomotor development of very young children to address early specific needs and avoid development delays

Durably alleviate poverty through early childhood-development activities for children from underprivileged neighbourhoods.

Target a particular issue with specific activities when justified

> Tuberculosis control in Mumbai (India)

> Preschool and primary school support activities in Antananarivo (Madagascar)

Intervention criteria

We base our decision of intervention on three main criteria:

  1. Need intensity (poverty)
  2. Population density
  3. Favourable context
  • No competition from equivalent services
  • Stability allowing a long term action (no wars…)
