About Us

Every Child is Your Child work to establish an ongoing back to school assistance fund for children living in direct provision. We raise these much needed funds through an annual fundraising dinner event at Thomond park stadium. We also run an annual backpack drive-in between June and August, and our christmas gift drive between November and December.

ECIYC is a community group based in Limerick, set up with the overall goal of raising much needed funds for parents living in direct provision. Over 7,200 asylum seekers live in direct provision,

30% OF RESIDENTS ARE CHILDREN. 

We work towards an ongoing fund for school needs and supplies.

Our Current Campaigns

1789 children live in the direct provision system, with another 304 in emergency accommodation.
Parents who cannot work can’t afford school supplies. And the living conditions in direct provision centres routinely fail to provide adequate space for asylum seeker
children to complete homework and study to support their education.
