What do you mean by values? Which stats are zero?
 
Could you please share a screenshot? (but crop out your email and customer ID number)
 
Have you connected your Analytics and Google Ads accounts? https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1033961?hl=en

hi, everythign is linked and according to analytics everythign is receiving data. 
My ads must be running as my traffic is increasing. hwowever I have  2 campaigns goign the one for 3 weeks and you can see the clippings here. my data studio which shows traffic for the ads source

Presumably Data Studio is pulling in data from Analytics.

Looks like you are getting visits from referrals (links on other websites) and organic (people searching search engines). But apparently no clicks from paid ads (i.e. the ad grant).

Traffic could be increasing, but that does not necessarily mean your ads are working, it could be traffic from some other channel. For example your organic traffic might be increasing lately.

So go to Google Ads. Not Analytics or Data Studio. How many clicks and impressions have you had in the last 30 days? I see your screenshots, but don't know what time span they represent. If there are some, then I suspect you haven't actually connected Ads and Analytics properly. Double check, using the link I provided. 

But assuming you chose a sensible date range, then it looks like you're not getting an impressions at all. In which case, what bidding strategy did you choose? what keywords? are ads and keywords approved, and since how long ?

You are not forced to use smart campaigns. I never use them, don't personally think they're worthwhile. Go ahead and create standard ad campaigns if you want. There is no rule saying you have to use smart campaigns.

Video's not allowed. You can't use Display either.

You can only create search campaigns.

if you don't mind giving me a bit of advice, can you put together joint budgets with other NPOs? 
We ar ebusy rolling out a national network of free treament centres and would be interesting if we could leverage the whole network

I've seen some strange disapprovals under the abortions policy. To give one example, the word "pro" was used in the ad's first description, the word "choice" in the second. In completely unrelated contexts.
Perhaps there's something similar on your site, some out of context words, that's triggering it.

No, you can't share an Ad Grant with other nonprofits. Each registered nonprofit must apply separately, and only point ads at the domains they're approved for.

Free treatment? What are you treating? What is your website address?

the4one7.com.. We started off just wanting to drive homeless addicts to free treatment facilities, but it has gone a bit balistic. we putting together a network of rehabs country wide which are reforming as NPOs and cooperatives aimed at ensuring you get the same standard of care regardless of how much or little money you have.  With one treatment programme based on international standards so they will get one continuous message regardless of where they go.  Coupled with a skills development programme where we send them back into the communities they came from as contributing members of the community

That's why I asked what kind of treatment. You're working in the area of addiction. There's your problem. You can't use Google Ads to promote addiction and rehab services. That's nothing to do with Ad Grants, it's a Google Ads policy. See https://support.google.com/adspolicy/answer/7683376?hl=en

You probably wouldn't see any kind of warning. Your ads will simply get zero results.

Sorry, there is no way round this, Google Ads just isn't going to work for you. If you were US based there would be a way to pay to get certified via a third party called LegitScript, but it looks like you're not in the US.
