Aidlink continues to believe that Irish civil society, and in particular small organisations including ourselves, have an important role to play in the fight against “poverty, hunger and the violation of human rights”, as set out in One World, One Future, Ireland’s Policy for International Development.
We welcome the recent commitment from Taoiseach Leo Varadkar’s to increasing Ireland’s Overseas Development Aid (ODA).
We are asking the Irish government to:
1. Support Dóchas’ Pre-Budget Submission
2. Invest in Irish NGOs as a vital component of Irish Civil Society
3. Invest in small NGOs and their capacity to have a positive impact overseas
