The 2016 was a great year for ALG! We began the year with a record amount of £231 thousand raised jointly with our sister-charity, UPG Portugal.
Since January your donations focused mainly on the three projects – School Meals in SLM (35%), followed by a favourite for the ALG friends for several years – Pre-Schools (11%) and HIV Day Care Centre (10%).
We invested even more in academic and professional education, expanded basic sanitation with 13 latrines and increased the support provided to children infected with HIV. We developed a long-wanted programme aimed at helping 11 parents through income generation initiatives. With local poverty increasing to alarming levels, ALG strengthened the basic food baskets of sponsored children and took the challenge to launch a new pre-school in São Vicente Paulo.
We were proud of ALG uni scholarship holders like Joaquim and Eduardo who obtained their college degree. They are symbols of our confidence that no matter how underprivileged the child, a better future is attainable through access to education.
On a year Mozambique was plagued by draught and food shortages, ALG was present through strong investment and supported by volunteers on the ground. In 2017 your funds will help us further as we keep on breaking the cycle of poverty. Join us in this great adventure!
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!
