What we do

We work with Inspirational Educators to improve educational outcomes for disadvantaged children

Education is key to breaking the poverty cycle and improving health, nutrition, and opportunities for all children throughout Ireland.

Our ambition is to give every child in Ireland equal access to a brighter future by funding evidence based educational programmes that tackle complex issues arising as children journey through their educational lifecycle to reach their life goals.  With our eyes on a better future, we offer hope to children who wouldn't normally have access to support structures that allow them to reach their potential.

We work with inspirational educators to transform the lives of children from disadvantaged communities throughout Ireland.

Enhancing educational opportunities A true team effort

In 2020, thanks to regular giving from the Irish funds and financial services industry, and in collaboration with our charity partners, our educational programming supported over 2000 children directly and many thousands more indirectly as they journey to achieve their life goals and aspirations.

As a result of our joined up giving, we have raised and allocated almost €3 million towards education.
