Sharing Experiences Worldwide
Forum on Overcoming Extreme Poverty
“So that no one will feel alone and powerless faced with extreme poverty, and so that no effort will be lost.” Joseph Wresinski, Founder
The Forum is a network of individuals and groups committed in various ways alongside populations living in poverty. It is facilitated by the International Movement ATD Fourth World.
The important thing isn’t to organise big events, even if several did take place in different countries last year. What’s more important is to reach out to those who aren’t normally noticed, and to take time with them; to let them to speak, and listen to what they have to say. This day is an opportunity for us to share our long term commitment to build a world where everyone’s dignity is recognised, and where everyone can find their place and give the best of themselves. This is a day for festivity, joy, friendship and meeting others.
