ATD Fourth World established itself in Guatemala in 1979. We then developed our activities in the region with teams of permanent volunteers in Bolivia, Haiti, Mexico, and Peru. We also have groups of friends and allies in Brazil, Guadeloupe (an overseas département of France), Honduras and El Salvador.
ATD Fourth World is present in various countries in Europe (on local, regional and national levels, see below action in the countries). It also conducts cross-border actions: engaging with young people (Djynamo), organizing meetings with young people and adults (Fourth World People’s University, Forums, …), offering trainings, conducting arts and cultural activities, advocating for human rights (blog)….
The International Movement ATD Fourth World maintains a permanent delegation to European Institutions.
As part of our priorities for 2013 -2017, we are paying particular attention to action against poverty across Europe (blog).
