Presentation Ireland works for a more compassionate, just and sustainable world. We are inspired by the people we work with, by their energy, creativity and enthusiasm. We aim to work in innovative and inclusive ways. We seek to develop new approaches to learning and to create awareness of human rights, and sustainable living. We believe that small, well thought out actions can make a big difference.
We help people to design responses to unmet needs in our society. We try to use the learning from our work to influence public policy to promote inclusion and fairness.
Our work is rooted in the Christian tradition of faith and social justice. Presentation Ireland was set up by the Presentation Sisters. We follow the example of Venerable Nano Nagle, a Cork woman, who challenged institutional injustice by setting up small schools for poor children during the Penal Times in Ireland over 225 years ago.
Currently, our main areas of work are: social inclusion and outreach; learning innovation; ecology and sustainable living. In addition, we have recently embarked on an exciting project to promote greater collaboration among centres and programmes supported by the Presentation Sisters.
iScoil is an on- line learning initiative for early school leavers.
