November 20, 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. This occasion must serve as a reminder that we must ensure that all families be respected and supported by fair family policies designed in the spirit of human rights. We must end bullying and discrimination, and support parents as the first partners for their children’s academic success. And we must promote cooperation among learners, and friendship among children of all backgrounds, so that all children can enjoy life!
International Action The 25th Anniversary of the Convention of the Rights of the Child was celebrated on November 20th. ATD Fourth World Bolivia volunteer Ms. Bertha Condori traveled to New York to bring the experiences of children and young people living in poverty to the interactive panel discussion on the theme, Is the World a Better Place for Children?
International Action On December 16, 2014, ATD Fourth World will host an online panel discussion exploring the problems with international humanitarian aid. What is wrong with international humanitarian aid? How does this impact the most vulnerable people? What sort of reforms would be necessary to fix it?
About us December 5 is International Volunteer Day. In this video (first in a series of videos produced by ATD Fourth World Canada and ATD Fourth World USA which we’ll be sharing over the coming months), Daniel Marineau tells us more about his work and why it’s so important.
