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 Salvation Army has a drop-in centre for vulnerable children at Mchinji town close to the Zambian border. The project involves a community-based rehabilitation programme for young girls and boys involved in trafficking as well as other vulnerable children. In addition, the project conducts sensitisation meetings in partnership with the district social welfare office and other agencies involved in combatting child trafficking.


The centre provides temporary accommodation for a maximum of 20 children at a time, including meals, counselling services, psychosocial support, spiritual counselling, sports and skills training (such as sewing, gardening and poultry keeping) which aims to help participants contribute to their household income. The overall aim is to support, care for and restore hope to the victims of child trafficking as well as their parents and guardians and to establish a sustainable coping mechanism in Mchinji District. The ALMT funding is supporting the running costs of the centre.
