Building Brighter Futures

The Rising Tide Project

Our Mission Statement

Our goal is to support young people to achieve their full potential in education, employment and life.  
Social exclusion and educational inequality negatively impacts the lives of young people reducing their self belief, dignity and well being.  
Our targeted programmes enhance young people’s self esteem, life skills and qualifications, helping them to forge fulfilled lives within their communities and beyond. 
Our programmes have been developed over a 20-year period working with young people nationally and internationally.

Our Story

To Children With Love Limited is an Irish registered charity founded by Dublin woman Debbie Deegan in 1998.  She met a group of abandoned children in a Russian orphanage suffering from a severe lack of love and made a promise to them that she would be back to help.  The charity was formed and 21 years later, she and her team are still by their side.  Since then they have reached out to thousands more children in the same situation.  To this day she continues to carry out that promise, the children feel loved and have achieved huge success in their lives.  The cycle of abandonment has been well and truly broken.

In 2015 To Children With Love took its wealth of experience of working with young people and launched its pilot Irish project The Rising Tide Project for a DEIS band one school in Dublin.  This project runs parallel to the many other programmes of To Children With Love.  It simply means we have brought our expertise home.

We are delighted to share Debbie’s TEDx TALK, which took place at Kingston-Upon-Thames 11 January 2020
