Overcoming Poverty

We are a global movement working in solidarity with those living in persistent poverty; our initiatives and projects are always developed in cooperation with them, in response to their aspirations in their communities and society. This means that no two ATD Fourth World Movement teams have exactly the same form or actions.

All our projects are based on three basic principles:

  • The inalienable dignity of each human being
  • The necessity to learn from families living in persistent poverty
  • The responsibility of all people to unite to overcome the injustices of poverty
