What we do?
All Together in Dignity – ATD Fourth World is an international human-rights movement that works through grass-roots projects in partnership with people living in poverty. All around the world, it remains focused on constantly reaching out to the most vulnerable families, those who have a long history of poverty and educational disadvantage even in the so-called developed countries.
For the past 20 years, ATD in Ireland has been close to family members facing persistent poverty and struggling daily to live in dignity. ATD welcomes everyone. It unites people whatever their origin, social status, culture or beliefs to fight against poverty. In building trust, solidarity and friendship, all have a place to realize their full and best potential. By working together and learning from each other, everyone is free to express themselves without being judged.
