The ILEA Greater Atlanta Chapter

The ILEA Greater Atlanta chapter holds an educational or social meeting once every month, showcasing different event locations and vendors around the metro Atlanta area. In addition to monthly meetings, the chapter also hosts networking and educational events outside the monthly meeting that include: Breakfast Club, Happy Hour and special seminars.

The ILEA Greater Atlanta chapter is run entirely by volunteers and guided by a member-elected Board of Directors, which reports to ILEA International.

Donate to a specific project need, for example to “ 20 euros for a wheelbarrow ”, or else to a project generally e.g. “Building a school in Mombasa, Kenya”. You can always donate anonymously. Rather than a one-off donation, you can become a monthly donor. Also a possibility with many projects: donations in kind or donating your time as a volunteer.

Rate it if you happen to know the project manager or if you know more about the project for some other reason. Post your opinion on the project-site, ideally including photos or videos from when you visited the project on-site. You can also ask the project manager questions at any time. Others can use their answers to help them decide whether to donate.
