Mission Statement

‘’Cork Anti-Poverty Resource Network works towards creating a new society of equality. CAPRN advocates for respect between all people and nations; equal access to the resources of the communities in which we live in – social, cultural, physical and economic. CAPRN works in a way which, by our own practice in terms of commitment, clarity, generosity and mutual sharing, creates a process and role modelling among working class, marginalized people, who are at the core of what our project is about.’’
