ABE is a not-for-profit skills development specialist and awarding organization providing internationally recognized learning and credentials, and quality assurance. ABE focuses on business and entrepreneurship skills, and makes a difference to the lives of people in some of the world’s poorest countries including fragile and conflict contexts.  We work with a network of national/ international partners to develop skills that empower individuals, reduce gender inequality and tackle extreme poverty. ABE has a strong footprint in Sub-Saharan Africa, West Africa, CARICOM and South East Asia. Our expertise in operating on a transnational scale, and in some of the world’s most challenging environments, makes us the partner of choice to support governments and INGOs in the deployment of economic capacity building projects.

We are a strategic partner of the Commonwealth Enterprise & Investment Council and a member of the Federation of Awarding Bodies.
