SERVE's Work in 2021

In 2021, SERVE worked with eleven development projects in eight countries. In Ireland, we also launched a Think Global Act Local programme and a development education programme for schools. We also acknowledge that despite the pandemic, SERVE has received generous public donations to continue our work. Our sincere gratitude for all your support.


Over 3 years, our SERVE Development Programme reached over 7,300 young people to improve access to vocational skills training, life skills and entrepreneurship training in Zimbabwe and Mozambique.

We delivered financial support in favour of a Youth Leadership training programme for 40 young males living in the Nkaneng area in South Africa.

We’ve offered aid for COVID-19 emergency responses in the Badjao tribe, Philippines and in rural areas of Karnataka, India.

We launched, Think Global Act Local, a brand new volunteering programme that was hosted online keeping in mind the challenges of the pandemic and recruitment for the 2022 programme has now opened.

SERVE has supported diverse projects that contribute to the Global Goals. All the initiatives were made possible with the institutional grants that SERVE received in 2021. Total grants amount to over €500,000.

Local Programmes, Global Impact

SERVE’s new Think Global Act Local programme bridges communities in Ireland to our partners in the Global South through discussions of Global Goals.

SERVE collaborated with Scala to support nine volunteers to build the Cork Global Goals Youth Village. This Village advocates for Climate Action in a local set up.

SERVE launched the SDG Champions School Programme to continue the invaluable connection with schools despite the ongoing pandemic. Seven schools from across the country have come aboard for programmes to be concluded in 2022.
