Working in partnership with people struggling against chronic poverty.International impact - Ireland
raised of €10,000 goal
For the past 20 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.
