More Partner Organisations Join the Stop Poverty Campaign!
This article is imported from our 2017 Stop Poverty Campaign web site.
We are pleased to announce a number of additional international and national partner organisations which have become involved in the Stop Poverty campaign. They represent a cross-section of development, civil society and cultural organisations.
Most of our partner organisations are well known to ATD Fourth World as we have shared common struggles and victories together in the past, while a few are relatively new to us. All, however, share a commitment to ensure that poverty in all its forms, and particularly extreme poverty, be eradicated from our world.
- European Anti-Poverty Network (EAPN Europe) is the largest European network of national, regional and local networks, involving anti-poverty NGOs and grassroots groups as well as European Organisations. The EAPN has aligned its active social media program with the social media program of the Stop Poverty campaign for 17 October, World Day for Overcoming Poverty. ATD Fourth World has close links with the EAPN in Brussels and in its country offices in Portugal and Ireland, among other countries.
- Emmaus International is comprised of 350 member organisations in 37 different countries in Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe. It supports income-generation activities with people experiencing social exclusion. In September, the Board of Emmaus International formally endorsed the Stop Poverty campaign and subsequently, its Senior Management Team reached out to all its member organisations to support the Call to Action and Stories of Change of the Stop Poverty campaign, as well as the 17 October World Day.
- Playing for Change, a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music, which has partnered with the Stop Poverty campaign and ATD Fourth World teams in 5 countries (Burkina Faso, Spain, Haiti, Canada and the Philippines) in the production of a truly inspiring video-film of the song, “With My Own Two Hands, I Can Save the World”, which was released on 9 October to popular acclaim.
- À Cœur Joie International, an international choral movement of 13 national federations, which has performed numerous choral events throughout France in support of the Stop Poverty campaign and the 17 October World Day.
Following these last few weeks of the Stop Poverty campaign, we will provide a comprehensive listing of all the international and national partner organisations which have joined with us in spreading our campaign’s message that extreme poverty is not inevitable and can be overcome.
