.All Together in Dignity (ATD) has been present in Ireland since 1999. Currently we run the following projects and you can volunteer or donate to support them!

  • We regularly visit people living in hostels or socially disadvantaged areas. Often, because of the many obstacles they have faced since childhood, the parents met have children in care, mental health issues and/or addictions. Little by little, ATD builds with them a relationship based on trust and respect. “What helps me the most is meeting people like you, people who don’t judge me, people with who I don’t have to wear a mask, people who have a positive outlook and believe in me.

  •  The Unity in the Community Youth Group: The UC Youth Group (UCYG) was created in  September 2017 after an international Youth meeting organised by ATD Europe in the Netherlands. Young adults involved are from 18 years old to 28 yo.  It’s first project will end in July 2018. It is inspired by the legacy of Martin Luther King and his famous speech: “I have a dream”!

  • 2018 is a special year for the End Poverty activism!  It is a year to mark the centenary of the birth in 1918 of Nelson Mandela, the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King and the 30th anniversary of the death of Joseph Wresinski, founder of ATD. It is also 70 years after the proclamation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights! Some 2018 ATD Ireland’s projects are designed to reinforce the promotion of the End Poverty Legacy of Mandela, King and Wresinski.

  • Promote among Irish stakeholders the newly-adopted “UN  Guiding  Principles  on  Extreme  Poverty  and  Human  Rights” (Sept. 2012). Based on internationally agreed human rights principles and standards, the Guiding Principles provide practical guidance on how to put into practice the obligations of States to respect, protect and fulfil the rights of persons living in extreme poverty.
