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 ALMT sponsored the Philippines Street Child World Cup team organised by a network of NGOs in Manila. The grant enabled a team of young people, all of whom with experience of living on the streets, to represent their peers in Durban. As well as competing on the football field, the team of street children worked with seven similar teams from around the world to lead an innovative conference, identifying issues in their lives that they want to see changed. “The Street Child World Cup provides a platform for the rights of street children to be heard.” Hon Gordon Brown MP, Prime Minister. “The Street Child World Cup demonstrates the tremendous potential of every single child, and especially street children, who are so often treated as less than human. I urge all governments to guarantee the rights of this most marginalised group of their citizens to lives in which their promise is fulfilled.” Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
