Trócaire, meaning mercy, works with amazing people to bring about positive and lasting change in some of the world's poorest places. It works for a just and sustainable world for all.
Trócaire envisages a just and peaceful world, where people’s dignity is ensured and rights are respected; where basic needs are met and resources are shared equitably; where people have control over their own lives and those in power act for the common good.
Trócaire's objectives are various and diverse, including to support citizens to bring about more participatory, accountable and responsive governance, where states respect, protect and fulfill the human rights of the poorest and most marginalized people; to increase the capacity of poor, marginalized and vulnerable people to secure sustainable and just livelihoods; to reduce the impact of humanitarian crises on vulnerable communities and individuals; to contribute to the elimination of gender inequalities, ensuring that women and men have equal rights and opportunities in access to and control of resources and power; and to reduce vulnerability to HIV and mitigate the impact of HIV and AIDS on poor and marginalized communities.
Trócaire works in partnership with local organisations. Working in partnership means that we use our experience, funding, and staff to support people in changing their communities and reaching their goals.
