ATD Fourth World (UK)
ATD Fourth World is an international anti-poverty organisation staffed by full-time volunteers who have all chosen to make a commitment to eradicating persistent poverty and to receive the same nominal salary, from International Coordinator to the newest full-time volunteers.
The organisation works in 25 countries on five continents, running projects in very poor areas throughout the developed and developing world. All projects built in partnership with people who are living in poverty aim to:
· raise awareness of poverty as a violation of human rights · empower people experiencing poverty to access and exercise their fundamental rights, to have their voice heard at all levels of society. · ensure that their views are represented when policy is decided and decisions are made. · create opportunities for those living in persistent poverty to participate in, and contribute to, the community as a whole
