Charities, other non-profits and social enterprises can inadvertently be targeted victims of money launderers and terrorist financiers. This risk is heightened in the international development and humanitarian relief sectors. However, with vigilance and through the adoption of appropriate measures these risks can be mitigated.

This training course is designed to raise your awareness of the impact of anti-money laundering (AML) and anti-terrorist financing (ATF) laws and regulations on charities, non-profits and social enterprises to help you mitigate any risks.
