During 2016 ERD engaged in an in-depth strategic review process – looking at every aspect of our operation and exploring how we can better work with our partners and supporters to ensure the greatest possible impact of Edmund Rice Mission.
The resulting ERD Strategy 2017-21 represents our transition to a development agency fully dedicated to the liberation of people and communities from poverty and injustice. ERD’s core purpose is to collaborate to support the sustainability of Edmund Rice Mission by sourcing funding, building donor engagement and working with our partners in mission to improve development capacity and maximise impact. We are committed to transparency and accountability, and to an efficient, effective operation that impacts positively on the lives of people made poor. Our sincere thanks must go to all our partners and supporters around the world who contributed so valuably to the review process, which was facilitated by Ian Williams of Caplor Horizons.
