International Non-Governmental Youth Organisation - Full members
Democracy and young people
ATD Fourth World is an international organisation whose aim is to put an end to extreme poverty by ensuring access to fundamental rights for all. Founded in 1957 by Joseph Wresinski, ATD has no political or religious affiliations. Today, the organisation brings together individuals of all cultures and social origins across over 30 countries in Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe. ATD’s approach is based on daily contact with people living in exclusion due to persistent poverty. It involves supporting them as they take action to lift themselves out of poverty while forging partnerships with other stakeholders. From this experience, ATD Fourth World has learned that the fight to eradicate poverty can only succeed if it is designed, implemented, monitored, and evaluated with the people concerned.
