To use the power of Transformative Education through Learning, Leadership and Enterprise to end the injustice of poverty wherever we find it.
Mission statement 2011
This website reflects the history, work, vision and ethos of An Cosán, all of which operate within a framework of the social, economic and cultural reality of the world we live and work in. Our hope into the future is to ensure that we fulfil our potential and scale up the work of the centre of Learning, Leadership and Enterprise, that is An Cosán. We look forward to working in partnership nationally and internationally with other communities facing the injustice of inequality and poverty.
Central to our work is our commitment to supporting individuals and communities to actively engage in the process of social change through transformative education.
At the heart of all we do and aspire to doing is the ethos of An Cosán . It is the ideals, beliefs, values and principles that underpin all our work, our culture and our philosophy. We often state that it is not so much what we do but how we do things that makes the difference that supports individuals and communities to change and develop.
As An Cosán enters the 25th year of partnership with and service to the community of Tallaght West a new phase of our development begins, I look forward to sharing this journey with you.
I hope you find our website both useful and interesting and hopefully after you have viewed it you will be interested in supporting and connecting with us.
