Irish Aid is the Irish Government’s programme for overseas development. The programme is managed by the Development Co-operation Division of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The work of Irish Aid includes a commitment to Development Education. Irish Aid’s Development Education funding aims to increase awareness and understanding of global development issues among the Irish public.
Irish Aid’s current Development Education Strategy can be found here: Irish Aid Development Education Strategy 2017-2023
The long term goal of this Strategy is that through the provision of development education, people are empowered to analyse and challenge the root causes and consequences of global hunger, poverty, inequality, injustice and climate change. Irish Aid consider Development Education as playing an important role in building the conditions in which we can continue to meet ongoing global challenges, contributing to both our foreign policy and international development policy objectives. The four core values underpinning Irish foreign policy are “a fairer, more just, more secure and more sustainable world”. Irish Aid promotes these values abroad through their international development programme and at home through their support for development education. Development education promotes citizenship literacy among the Irish public by deepening understanding of global justice issues and Ireland’s core values, advancing our foreign policy aim of contributing to the collective international effort to build a better world for all.
