WHAT IS ATAPE?
The Association of Tanzanian Adventist Professionals and Entrepreneurs
The Association of Tanzanian Adventist Professionals and Entrepreneurs (ATAPE) is a faith-based organization within the Seventh – Day Adventist (SDA) Church in Tanzania that brings together all professionals and entrepreneurs. The organization was established in 1998 by a group of Seventh-Day Adventist professionals who found it necessary to not only use their professions for individual benefit but also for the LORD, their fellow church members, and the community at large. Over the years that followed, there was a growing need to incorporate entrepreneurs into the Association. Finally, in 2012, the decision was made, and the name ATAPE was born.
