How To Help

Together we can

Let’s help together

We’re removing physical, bureaucratic, and financial barriers to expand financial inclusion to rural communities through the medium of credit union. We’ve have over 30 years of experience and expertise in credit union development, utilising Irish credit union leaders’ knowledge from across the island. Using this expert knowledge we’re providing training to credit unions’ and educating their members’ to develop sustainable structures and to promote the credit union ethos to ensure that these ‘access barriers’ are removed.

We rely on our generous supporters who provide us with critical financial donations to allow us to bring hope to many families and communities throughout the world.
