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.

Babies and children in Pakistan are incarcerated in prison with their mothers. In these prisons, there are no provisions whatsoever for the children. Due to harsh weather and unhygienic conditions, these children are highly susceptible to respiratory infections, gastrointestinal disorders, skin infections and malnutrition. DOST and the ALMT are working with these prisons to ensure the children are not suffering for mistakes they did not make. Guests at the annual Burns Night Gala Dinner made pledges to ensure proper medical care for 100 children per month for one year which includes medicines, vaccination, antiseptic, dressing, thermometers and other medical items.
