It has felt like a very long winter, but Spring finally feels like it's here and with it comes new ALMT partnerships and exciting challenge opportunities in 2018.

Ace Africa - Kenya - Nutrition in schools

Increasing the nutritional capacity and economic security of children, their households, and the local community.

All Ears - Cambodia - The Auris Minor Project

Free specialist ear and hearing services for high-at-risk, disadvantaged children at the AEC clinic in Phnom Penh.

The children benefitting from this project represent some of the most vulnerable and disadvantage children in Cambodia. Cases are derived from current partner organisations or from public hospitals, new partner organisations or walk-in cases. All cases are high-at-risk of ear disease and resulting deafness. They include Down's syndrome, cleft palate and lip and other cranio-facial disorders, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism, traumatic brain injury, polio and paraplegia as well children with HIV/AIDS. 2100 cases are expected to be seen in one year.

Siblings Together - UK - Monthly Activity Days (MADS)

There are over 40,000 Looked After children in the UK living separated from at least one sibling. These children have a fundamental right to choose to have contact with their brothers or sisters. However, in many cases this does not happen, and when it does, the quality of contact is often poor.

Monthly Activity Days (MADS) provide on-going monthly opportunities for separated siblings to meet and enjoy creative activities supported by sessional leaders and skilled volunteers. The children attending enjoy fun outdoor activities, and arts and creative workshops. They are supported by professional, qualified staff and volunteers.

St Ann's and Sneinton FC - UK - Girls team sponsorship

After over seven years of partnership between the ALMT and SAS FC, it is with great pride that the girls team have achieved sponsorship from ALMT corporate partners, RenaissanceRe. The girls will be proudly wearing their sponsors logo on their team strip.

The girls team train once and week and are becoming an integral part of the clubs infrastructure. The ALMT and RenaissanceRe will be visiting the team later this month to meet the young women and watch their football skills in action.

The ALMT look forward to updating you with their progress.

Village Water - Zambia - Safe water and hygiene

Water borne illnesses in Zambia are common including diarrhoea, worms, eye, skin and chest infections. This means that children are often too ill to attend school. Girls are more likely to miss school or drop out completely when they reach puberty if their school has no dignified facilities. Our solutions are simple, cost effective and lasting.

This project will focus on a school in rural Zambia with more than 500 pupils with no safe water or sanitation facilities. At least five feeder villages of around 150 people each will also benefit from training & water. The district council & education department will help us identify the school & take part in training & monitoring of impacts, so they can continue to do this in the future.

'I have been to watch the London Marathon every year since I moved to London 10 years ago now. I thought to myself I'd love to actually take part in this one day. I could only imagine the sense of achievement you must get when you cross that finish line, after 26.2 gruelling  miles...I contacted Nick Lawson, and by midday on Monday I was already confirmed to run the 2018 London Marathon on behalf of the ALMT!'

St Albans 5k - Ayla Meredith - 10th June 2018

Money raised by Ayla will be going towards the support of Jenni Thomas and the ALMT's bereavement support service.
