Values

Villagers in Nyamagabe, Rwanda, celebrate their 'kitchen gardens', grown with support from Trócaire.

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
  • Where those in power act for the common good.

We support people regardless of culture, ethnicity, gender or religion.

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
  • Where those in power act for the common good.

We support people regardless of culture, ethnicity, gender or religion.

Our work is guided by five values:

  • Solidarity – we stand in support of people facing injustice
  • Perseverance – we do not give up
  • Accountability – we are accountable to our donors and the communities we work with
  • Participation – we believe everybody has the right to participate in decisions that affect them
  • Courage – we will be brave

We practice these values in our work with communities, supporters and donors.

Trócaire is the overseas development agency of the Irish Catholic Church. We work in partnership with local development and humanitarian actors, to support people and communities to tackle the root causes of poverty, injustice and violence and to use their own power to create positive and lasting change.

Our work is grounded in Catholic Social Teaching and is in line with the teachings of the Catholic Church. We work with people of all faiths and none, and with a wide range of organisations. We don’t endorse all the positions of our partners, but we believe in working collaboratively with others in areas where we share the same objectives for change.
