Working in partnership with people struggling against chronic poverty.International impact - Ireland
For the past 17 years, ATD in Ireland has been close to family members facing persistent poverty and struggling daily to live in dignity.
We develop a human-rights based participatory approach through grass-roots projects in partnership with people living in poverty. All around the world, around 100 projects, all inter-connected within the network of ATD International, remain 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.
Projects in 2018

When voices unite: let's break the silence to leave no one behind “Whether in the aldeas of Guatemala, the mornes of Haiti, the slums of Africa or Asia, or the shantytowns of Europe, wherever families are trapped in the most intolerable poverty they sing their dignity.“ Joseph Wresinski, founder of ATD.
