You Can Make A Difference in 2018! Today!
From End Poverty Day (17 October 2018) to 31st December 2018 ATD needs to collect €5,000 to make ends meet.
This means finding 1000 friends ready to offer us the cost of one pint (€5)!
With these €5,000 we have to cover some 2018 costs of the following activities:
– the training of our volunteers (€1,000)
– the “Youth Group” project involving young people from various background (including early school leavers and unemployed youth) to meet and develop solidarity projects (€1,000)
– the awareness projects promoting the new 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the 70th year old Universal Declaration of Human Rights (€1,000)
– our home support visits to households facing hardships because of poverty and the preparation of a delegation of “poverty experts” who will speak to Members of the European Parliament in February 2019. (€2,000)
If many people donate a small amount we may reach quickly our €5,000 target. So please invite people you know, relatives, friends, to make a gift to ATD!

Our projects focus on the sharing of knowledge among people of different backgrounds in an atmosphere of mutual respect and dignity. We then seek out and create forums where the voice and experience of those in poverty can influence public opinion and policy.
Programs and projects are based on three basic principles:
- The inalienable dignity of each human being
- The necessity to learn from families living in persistent poverty
- The responsibility of all people to unite to overcome the injustices of poverty
Our work would not be possible without the generous financial support of ATD supporters around the world.
ATD Fourth World Ireland (registered as Charity with the Charity Regulation Authority and with the Revenue) is committed to the highest standard of efficiency and transparency in our financial transactions.
ATD staff members (all are members of ATD International Volunteers Corps) agree on a salary that is decided upon together and which is the same for everyone within the same country, regardless of seniority or responsibility. For Ireland in 2018, this salary is the minimun legal wage (36 hours a week) and is €18,000 gross a year along with the possiblity of health insurance.
