Formed in 1973, Trócaire supports communities in their efforts to improve their lives, meet their basic needs and ensure their human dignity in a way that is both long term and sustainable.
By leaving a legacy to Trócaire you will help us provide families with the training and tools they need to work their own way out of poverty and become self sufficient.
Trócaire works with local partners on the ground overseas which means that we can target communities in most need and ensure that donations are used to help the most vulnerable. Trócaire is working towards a just world where families can make a living and provide for them-selves now and into the future; where people living with HIV and AIDS have access to life-saving treatment and where men and women are treated equally and are given the same chance to learn and work to improve their quality of life.
Each year Trócaire is grateful to receive legacies left to our work from individuals who have taken the extraordinary step of remembering the people of the developing world in their Will.

Genevieve Umumarashavu (left), the mother of Josienne who featured in Trocaire’s 2004 Trocaire box.
Genevieve lost her husband and two children during the 1994 genocide. She received support from Trocaire in farming crops and livestock and in learning to save and manage small loans. She now owns a shop and is putting her children through school. Josienne is now 18 and hopes to go to university next year to study computers and management.
Your gift can help to provide both small loans and essential training so that those in need can start up their own small businesses. This will help them earn an income and eventually provide much needed employment to those around them. This is a gift that can create hope for whole communities and break the cycle of poverty that exists among some of the world’s most vulnerable communities.
