Formed in 1973, Trócaire supports communities in their efforts to improve their lives, meet their basic needs and ensure their human dignity in a way that is both long term and sustainable.

Trócaire works with local partners on the ground overseas which means that we can target communities in most need and ensure that donations are used to help the most vulnerable. Trócaire is working towards a just world where families can make a living and provide for them-selves now and into the future; where people living with HIV and AIDS have access to life-saving treatment and where men and women are treated equally and are given the same chance to learn and work to improve their quality of life.

In 2014-15, Trócaire’s work in 24 countries directly benefitted an estimated 2.4 million people.

Each year Trócaire is grateful to receive legacies left to our work from individuals who have taken the extraordinary step of remembering the people of the developing world in their Will. By leaving a legacy to Trócaire you will help us provide families with the training and tools they need to work their own way out of poverty and become self sufficient.

Right to Water, Malawi

Trócaire has chosen Malawi as its focus country for 2014. In Malawi 2.5 million people don't have access to water and over half the population (7 million) don't have access to adequate sanitation. Trócaire has been supporting projects in Malawi through CADECOM since 2003, funding community irrigation systems and boreholes. Our partners are also involved in advocating around issues of climate change and the right to water, helping to protect those who are vulnerable to water grabs and droughts.
