What is Co-Funding?

Co-funding with the ALMT allows individuals, other Trusts and Foundations, and Companies to contribute funds directly to individual, vetted and approved, project partnerships. With fifteen years of experience awarding grants and working in partnership with children’s organisations around the world, the ALMT is best placed to support you in your philanthropy.

The rains hadn’t come and Eswatini was experiencing its worst drought since 1991/2. Rivers are drying up; cattle are dying and soon people will be too. African Village School Fund (AVSF) have stockpiled food and water but there is a real and urgent need for a water tank.


Guests at the annual ALMT Burns Night gala dinner pledged their support to ensure a reliable source of water in the future.
