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.

Street Child Africa is a small charity committed to helping street children in the six sub-Saharan African counties in which they work, Ghana, Mozambique, Senegal, Zambia, DR Congo and Uganda.

 

The ALMT supported the provision of football coaching and equipment to deter 450 at risk children from drifting to the streets in Lusaka, Zambia. Typically, these children live in slums, are victims of physical and sexual abuse, are orphans and do not have a loving family to provide for them. The sessions will also be used as an opportunity to talk to children about issues that affect them and to discuss their feelings and concern to staff who can sign post children to other relevant services run by local partners, such as skills training or informal and formal education.
