Our Newsletter #5 is out!

In 2014 ALG welcomed a record number of new supporters in the UK and launched exciting new projects in Mozambique, consolidating our six hubs of local and direct intervention. Mostly centred on the vibrant SLM School, new projects include a full rollout of a school-feeding programme for over 800 students and a new HIV centre for up to 50 infected children. We even started our very first crowdfunding campaign for one of our young entrepreneurs. 
It is amazing how much you helped us grow. See how and where your contribution was used – and how you can help in 2015! Read more here

RPHM 2014 - Why Manuel is running again in 2015!

"ALG does a great job at the Royal Parks Half Marathon every year, bringing first time and expert runners together to form a nice group.  

It starts with a warm welcome as you arrive at their well organised base, continues with their encouraging screams of support as you run around, and ends with their attentive care as you return to base (including a great relieving recovery massage).  

And whilst we are all having fun, pushing ourselves to the limit to beat our personal best times, it feels good to know that in the meantime we are sponsoring a worthy cause supporting underprivileged children in Mozambique; managed by a super dedicated ALG team of nice people; that ensure a super efficient system where 95p for every £1 donated goes to the children”. 

We were very proud to welcome Manuel and his friends at RPHM 2014. See more pics of the event here

Manuel's enthusiasm with our work became such that he is now one one of our very first ALG Ambassadors!

RPHM 2014 generated c.£15’463 to date net of costs and with anticipated Gift Aid and matching. This will be applied in full in our School Feeding and HIV day Centre projects in the SLM school in Mozambique.

Our 2014 runners have already requested slots for RPHM 2015. Do you want to join our team also? Slots available December 2014, contact us on
