Trócaire was established by the Catholic Church in 1973 as a way for Irish people to donate to development and emergency relief overseas. Their dual mandate is to support the most vulnerable people in the developing world, while also raising awareness of injustice and global poverty in Ireland.

ODS was contracted to conduct the mid-term review of Trócaire's strategic plan. The purpose of the mid-term review is to take stock of progress to date, to identify and address any emerging strategic questions as well as to agree on decisions and actions going forward.
