ATD Fourth World works to overcome the injustices of persistent poverty and social exclusion by bringing together people from all walks of life, learning from people who face poverty every day, and running family and community projects.
Persistent poverty can be eradicated. It can be done by working in partnership with people living in poverty. We work on the grassroots level in over 34 countries and in six areas of the US, and maintain consultative status at the United Nations, UNICEF, UNESCO, and the ILO.
“Wherever men and women are condemned to live in poverty, human rights are violated. To come together to ensure that these rights be respected is our solemn duty.” – Joseph Wresinski
