Improving the lives of children affected by HIV & AIDS

Celebrating 10 years of the Egmont Trust

Starting from just 5 small projects in Zambia and Zimbabwe in 2005, Egmont has steadily grown our portfolio of local, African-based, grassroots initiatives working to improve the lives of some of the millions of children affected by HIV & AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa. 

Today, Egmont has provided £4.7 in funding to over 160 community driven projects run by 70 different organisations and, during the last 10 years, has helped improve the lives of more than 357,000 people. This would not have been possible without the incredible and generous support of our donors. 

Programme Manager Recruitment

We are now seeking to recruit a Programme Manager, who will manage the partner reporting and accountability process, provide support to partner evaluation and development and organise/facilitate in country partner meetings. S/he will also contribute substantially to the selection of potential new partners and assessment of proposals.

The successful applicantwill have relevant experience, at management levels, in civil society initiatives in Africa, especially those linked with HIV and AIDS and have excellent communication skills both written and spoken. 

Highlights from the 2014 Egmont Awards

On Wednesday, 19th March 2014, we held our sixth Annual Awards at the Royal Institution of Great Britain in London.

The Awards highlight the remarkable achievements in improving the lives of those affected by HIV&AIDS that Egmont partners deliver each year. Trustee, Alison Mayne, opened the evening, speaking of her personal journey discovering the impact that Egmont partners have in sub-Saharan Africa and why she continues to support their effective, sustainable and life-changing work.

Colin Williams then spoke briefly about the results and impact that is being delivered by our partners before making the awards to Abdul Faquir of Meninos and Enouche Ndeche of VAP.
