Isabelle Pypaert Perrin - Director General ATD Fourth World
Isabelle Pypaert Perrin joined ATD Fourth World’s Volunteer Corps in 1981 and has since worked in many different countries in addition to her native Belgium. She has helped build ATD Fourth World in a number of different cultural contexts in Europe, Central America, the Caribbean, and Asia.
Particularly formative for Isabelle was the opportunity to be in ATD founder Joseph Wresinski‘s secretariat for several years. Through her work with him, she saw how ATD’s people-centred work grows, person by person. Isabelle first joined the International Leadership Team in 2008, alongside Eugen Brand (Director General) and Diana Skelton. She took on the role of Director General in 2012, in partnership with team members Jacqueline Plaisir, Diana Skelton, and Jean Toussaint.
