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.

INCLUDED teach and work with slum and migrant children in China, India and Nepal who would otherwise be denied an education. Most migrant children who live in slums do not have access to age-appropriate and stimulating reading materials, often relying on the one textbook they might get at school to develop their skills. Guests at the annual ALMT Burns Night gala dinner pledged their support to help establish a library in one of INCLUDED’s community centres, providing a safe and fun place for children to access relevant and engaging books and explore their reading and learning potential.
