We are right in the middle of summer and the sun is definitely shining on the ALMT. We have five new partners, new co-funders and some exciting event news.

Mtaala Foundation - Sponsorships in Uganda

After a full year working with Mtaala on their mission and strategy, the ALMT are very happy to provide the organisation with the funds to cover 15 educational sponsorships. These sponsorships provide a crucial foundation for vulnerable children and at-risk youth who have endured war, the loss of their parents, the HIV epidemic, neglect and extreme poverty. The cost of an education for one year will also benefit the whole school with contributions towards the teachers, food for staff and pupils and accommodation which will create a stronger learning and nurturing environment.

Fred Foundation - ABA Therapy for autistic children in the UK

The Fred Foundation is built on the principle of allowing children with autism to reach their potential. Too many autistic children are being denied the one thing that would make the most profound difference to their lives and to the lives of their families – an individual specialised education programme. The Foundation was therefore set up to help fund education programmes for children with autism and the ALMT have jumped on board to support 10 families over the Christmas period.

Street Child Africa - Football and support in Zambia

With the help of an ALMT co-funder, we will be supporting the provision of football coaching and equipment to deter 450 at risk children from drifting to the streets in Lusaka, Zambia. Typically these children live in slums, are victims of physical and sexual abuse, are orphans and do not have a loving family to provide for them. The sessions will also be used as an opportunity to talk to children about issues that affect them and to discuss their feelings and concern to staff who can sign post children to other relevant services run by local partners, such as skills training or informal and formal education.

S.A.U.C.E - Vocational sewing and training in Cambodia

S.A.U.C.E. is a Spanish NGO which stands for Solidarity, Help, Hope Joy and Belief. Their goal is to try to answer to the lack of education and health facilities in Cambodia, to support people with disability, to help rebuild infrastructures and to assist the vulnerable, especially youth and women. The ALMT have made a commitment to support 18 girls to be trained in using a sewing machine enhancing their vocational skills. The grant will also provide a sewing machine and a micro loan to enable an income for the girls.
All ears Cambodia - Treatment and prevention in Cambodia

Fifty percent of hearing loss is preventable. In Cambodia, chronic ear infection is a leading cause, particularly in children. Management of infection is commonly overlooked leading to needless hearing loss and life-threatening complications. All Ears Cambodia combines cost effective primary ear healthcare to prevent hearing loss, with rehabilitative hearing aid fittings for those with a hearing impairment. The ALMT are supporting paediatric clinics that will be delivered daily to detect hearing loss early, provide rehabilitation, and to tackle pre-cursor infection to prevent hearing loss.

Case study - Facing the World

This year has been a big one for the ALMT skill sharing services. After a year of hard work, Facing the World finally has a database that is working with the organisation instead of against it. When we began the project, it was a daunting prospect with 10,000 contacts to cleanse and format and a database to re-design and streamline. With team work and a concentrated effort by all, Facing the World have now 'created a system that accurately captures all the relevant information about their donors and supporters.'

After a year-long partnership, the ALMT were very happy to provide the Mtaala Foundation with a grant following the work undertaken with the ALMT skills sharing services on their structure, mission and website. Learn more.

Partnerships worth sharing

We must be doing something right as the ALMT co-funding scheme has more than doubled this year. Our latest co-funded projects above feature a blue pin and the ALMT website will soon showcase all of our co-funded projects.

Co-funding opens the door to your own, individual project where you can see each penny of your donation in action. Let us do the hard work in researching, monitoring and managing the partnerships while you sit back and enjoy watching your money change children's lives. More info

Burns Night 2015

Burns Night 2015 is booked in and we're gearing up for a big one. We're going back to our favourite venue, Cafe de Paris, in Soho, London.

It's too soon to share any of the plans for the evening but we are on the hunt for auction prizes, ideas and gifts to help us raise loads of money on the night.

If you would like to put your name down to receive advance notice when tickets go on sale of have a prize to donate, please contact

Corney and Barrow bars

Our favourite team of fabulous folk Corney and Barrow bars have been working their socks off again running the Bupa 10k to raise money for ALMT charity partner, Footsteps Foundation. They raised over £1200 and there are grand plans to host more events this year.

The Footsteps Foundation provides financial assistance to families in need of support, enabling children with cerebral palsy and other neuromotor disorders to access the Footsteps therapy programme and benefit from specialist equipment whilst at home.

London Marathon 2015

It's the biggest and the best, the London Marathon will take place on 26th April 2015 and we have some places up for grabs.

We ask for a minimum fundraising target and offer runners the opportunity to direct their fundraising through the ALMT co-funding scheme, meaning you can support a specific project with the money you raise.

If you're interested, or know someone who is, please get in touch.

Our challengers

Spring and Summer always bring with them a host of amazing challengers who take on admirable events and challenge themselves to raise money for the ALMT. Our thanks this year go to Danny Carr, Alex and Claire Hickman, the team at Corney and Barrow, and Jan and Garry who very kindly asked guests at their wedding to make a donation to the ALMT.

If you're looking for a new challenge, have an idea or want some suggestions, we can help so get in touch

The Danger Age - an educational video

The ALMT is providing funding and support for the production of an educational video to raise awareness of the dangers of water and young children. The video is in partnership with the ALMT grief support service and Simon Martyn who lost his son Conwy three years ago. The video and its message will feature on Good Morning Britain and ITV news on August 6th. You can support the film by making a donation towards its production here.
