This year, A Little Gesture raised around £122k with UPG Portugal to apply directly in local intervention Projects in Xai-Xai, Chokwé and Chongoene. These programmes support the work done by our sister-charity over 11 years, in the Sponsoring area, with over £80k raised in 2015.
Your support represented over £560k for Sponsoring and over £280k for the Projects area funds applied on the ground since 2004 – at £850k and growing, almost one MILLION little gestures of help bringing joy to Mozambique!
Since January, your donations focused mainly on the two new projects: School Meals in Santa Luísa de Marillac School (29%) and HIV Day Care Centre (18%), followed by a favourite for the ALG friends for several years – Preschools (14%). Together, we have helped 2390 beneficiaries in 2015, mainly underprivileged children, many of them orphans and vulnerable.
We continue to grow mainly through volunteer work and minimum administrative costs. We rely on the word of mouth and fund raising campaigns between ALG Friends and Partner Companies to limit headquarters’ expenditures. We try to invest around 90c per pound donated on the ground, a strict and ambitious policy intended to apply most of donations on the ground with children.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH to everyone who allows us to fulfil ALG’s dream to improve the lives of children, families, youngsters and elders in Mozambique. Every Little Gesture Helps! MERRY CHRISTMAS ALG FAMILY!!!
