Concern and Irish Aid
Concern Worldwide and the Irish government have a history of working together successfully. Our aim is to help people lift themselves out of poverty.
In 2012, we received a four-year development funding grant from Irish Aid. This will help us focus on sustainable improvements for people who live in extreme poverty.
This project focuses on measurable results and accountability to the Irish tax-payer. We’ll provide regular updates to show what we’ve done with the money and what has been achieved.
This isn’t our first time to receive funding from Irish Aid – we have a successful history of working together. An independent evaluation of our previous partnership showed that we made a significant impact in these areas:
- Health and nutrition
- Access to food
- Access to education
- National health institutions and policies
