About Trocaire

Trócaire is the overseas development agency of the Catholic Church in Ireland. Trócaire was established in 1973 as a way for Irish people to donate to development and emergency relief abroad. Their dual mandate is to support the most vulnerable people in the developing world, while also raising awareness of injustice and global poverty at home.

Trócaire envisages a just and peaceful world where:

  • People’s dignity is ensured and rights are respected;
  • Basic needs are met and resources are shared equitably;
  • People have control over their own lives;
  • Those in power act for the common good.

Trócaire works with partner organisations in Ireland and internationally to bring about change at individual, community, societal and institutional levels. Together we tackle the root causes of poverty, not just the symptoms.

We work to address the structural causes of poverty, the unjust global financial and political systems that hold the poorest people back. We also give people in poor communities the skills and means to change their own lives, stand up to those in power and demand their rights.
