Our Mission

About Us

When in 2000 an Irish teacher returned to Ireland having spent some time in Kenya she encouraged her friends to support her projects financially and Aiding Resources was born. It supports and assists people in developing countries to utilise and make the most of their own natural resources and talents.

Aiding Resources is a registered charity in Ireland. Charity Regulatory Authority No. 20050962. Charity No. CHY15067, set up in 2000. We sponsor projects which help people transform their lives. These projects are organised by people living in the local communities. Aiding Resources donates the funds directly to the project managers and we follow the money trail right through with outcome monitoring.
