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 first ever Street Child World Cup (SCWC) held in Durban, South Africa, in March 2010 and it was so successful that we partnered with them again at the 2014 annual Burns Night dinner to support the Philippines team for a second time.


The Street Child World Cup places street children centre stage. The event celebrates potential and provides a platform for street children to tell their stories to policymakers and the worldwide media. They kicked off a global call for street children’s rights to be recognised and upheld.
