Messenger Birds

ATD Fourth World is part of a worldwide, child-led network called Tapori. Its motto is: “We want all children to have the same chances”.

Around the world, children are experiencing lockdown and are cut off from their friends. This is why ATD Ireland is inviting children in Ireland to create Messenger Birds describing their experiences and their hopes for the future. The birds help children to share words of friendship and encouragement with one another.

Please click here for step by step instructions showing how children can take part. You can also watch this video created by the UK End Child Poverty Coalition.

For the children:

  • Send a photo of your bird to and we will share it on our website and social media.
  • You can send your Messenger Bird to the address below 🙂
  • You can learn more about the Tapori network and how the Messenger Birds have taken off in Spain for example, in their newsletter.
