Accountability and transparency are central to our values as an organisation. In fact, they are part of our core values. We’re committed to using your donations to transform the lives of some of the poorest people in the world.
In 2021, we reached approximately 39 million people in 24 of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable countries. We spent over €196 million on our overseas programmes.
This is spent directly towards our goal of ending extreme poverty.
This is money spent to raise funds for Concern's work and highlight the needs of the communities we work with.
We invest money in influencing policies and deepening awareness on issues around global poverty with the public.
Funds spent to ensure Concern Worldwide is managed efficiently and adheres to the highest standards.
