Welcome to the US home of the international movement ATD Fourth World. We at ATD Fourth World believe that 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
December 5 is International Volunteer Day. In this video (first in a series of videos produced with ATD Fourth World Canada which we’ll be sharing over the coming months), Daniel Marineau tells us more about his work and why it’s so important.
