In addition to supporting the work of national teams, the ATD Fourth World regional team for Asia gives families living in extreme poverty a voice, through representation at UNESCO and in lectures and publishing projects at Asian universities.  We also support the development of a community of socially responsible children in Asia by publishing Tapori minibooks in local languages.

Many of ATD Fourth World’s friends in Asia are part of the Forum for Overcoming Extreme Poverty. These links extend to the Arab world in Western Asia, particularly in Lebanon.

In addition to supporting the work of national teams, the ATD Fourth World regional team for Asia gives families living in extreme poverty a voice, through working on Education for All, representation at Bangkok’s regional UNESCO office, and in lectures and publishing projects at Asian universities. We also support the development of a community of socially responsible children in Asia by publishing Tapori minibooks in local languages thanks to the voluntary commitment of many university students.
