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.

Partnering with the Egmont Trust and New Beginnings based in Lilongwe, Malawi, this project works to improve the lives of 220 expectant and young mothers, the 180 young children in their care and 100 adolescent girls who are either infected or affected by HIV through the Tiyende Naye psychosocial and vocational training programme.

 

The Tiyende Naye programme offers eight months training in in-demand vocations such as plumbing; construction; hair braiding and cosmetology; and tailoring. Following successful completion of their courses, trainees are organised into 34 business support groups which are supported with start-up materials to begin income generating activities. Each young woman supported is enrols into therapy sessions and receives counselling from New Beginnings trained counsellors. Beneficiaries meet one-to-one with the counsellors at least once a week and individualised wellness plans are drawn up to tackle specific issues.
