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.

Epic Arts is an international, inclusive arts organisation based in Cambodia and registered as a charity in the UK. They use the arts as a form of expression and empowerment to bring people with and without disabilities together. They aim to promote the message that every person counts through inclusive education, community, and social enterprise programmes.


Epic Arts had hired one building for their artistic workshops in Cambodia, but it had no wheelchair access to the main workshop and was confining in many ways. Epic Arts therefore approached ALMT as they wanted to establish a purpose-built building for its workshops and for it to act as an outreach to the marginalised and neglected deaf and disabled community in Kampot, southern Cambodia. The ALMT part funded the main construction, and the centre was named Angus Lawson Arts Centre. The centre is a tremendous resource for both able bodied and disabled children in Kampot and is now the mainstay of Epic Arts work in Cambodia. Building started in November/December 2007 with a 12-month construction timeline.
