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.

Lack of basic facilities in government owned schools in Pakistan is one of the major causes of high dropout in schools at primary level. This has especially afflicted the girl’s education ratio. This includes some beyond the capacity of social sectors like missing boundary walls, lack of classrooms, missing toilets and washrooms, but some can be addressed with little contribution like clean drinking water, electricity supply during summers. Each pledge received of £430 provided a water cooler and filter, a solar panel and benches and chairs.
