What is Co-Funding?

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.

Having someone on the ground is vital to running a successful project. Street Child United have Elisa, she leads on their initiatives with local street child NGOs in Rio de Janeiro and across Brazil and is committed to finding opportunities for street children to have their voices heard.


In March 2015, a group of former street children will be attending a summit in Brasilia, at which the government will be moving forward on the first national policy for street children. This is one of many ground-breaking projects that Elisa has been instrumental in delivering. Guests at the annual ALMT Burns Night gala dinner pledged their support to help Elisa continue her critical work, championing the rights of street children.
