The ALG Team

The ALG School Feeding Program

  • Improves school attendance through the incentive of a free meal
  • Supports student performance by reducing hunger during classes
  • Promotes better health and gender equality, as girls do no have to skip school to cook at home

Meals are provided to the entire school population of 750 children at SLM School, where our organization already sponsors 122 of the poorest children under Sister Lídia’s supervision.
For a monthly cost of £5/child, the school population of 750 students receive a daily nutritious hot meal, which sometimes is their only meal during the day. This program was launched in 2013 and for an annual cost of £38'500 in the second year running, it represents a significant effort for ALG. School meals in SLM relieve local poverty in Manjangue, and promote a childhood with education for extremely underprivileged children.

The Sporting Clube de Londres Restaurant

Sporting Clube de Londres will compliment our Quiz Night with a fantastic Portuguese inspired dinner. The menu offers a range of starters, mains and desert. If you have a any special dietary requirements please let us know in advance and we'll provide you with a special meal.

A Little Gesture A Great Help" ("ALG") is a small UK Charity focused on overseas aid to vulnerable children. Sara Vicente Barreto and 3 founding Trustees set up ALG as a UK charitable trust in 2011. The initiative followed from Sara’s local volunteering experience and her launch in 2004 of Portuguese NGO Um Pequeno Gesto Uma Grande Ajuda ("UPG"). Both charities are focused on underprivileged children and their families living exclusively in the Province of Gaza, a highly impoverished area in southern Mozambique.

The sister-charities are financially independent but both intervene directly on the ground through local established operations in Xai-Xai, Chongoene and Chokwé. This is a mostly rural area heavily affected by AIDS where children typically belong to one-parent only families, have HIV-infected relatives or are already orphans.

Both inspired by how much a little gesture could do in Mozambique, ALG and UPG support 850 children with direct Sponsorship of basic food and school enrolment costs in 2016, in mostly rural impoverished villages.

The two charities also finance complementary Projects to promote Poverty Relief (HIV support), improve Infrastructure for living conditions (basic housing and sanitation, water wells, small community centres), advance Education (pre-schools, school feeding, aftfer-class study, literacy, uni scholarships and also technical education) and invest in Sustainability (community centres or micro income-generating activities). In 2016 these programmes reached c.2’250 beneficiaries.

Together with UPG Portugal we raised in excess of £220 thousand in 2016 and applied in excess of £1 million on the ground since inception.
