Mission Statement


ATD Fourth World is an anti-poverty organisation that engages with individuals and institutions to find solutions to eradicate extreme poverty. Working in partnership with people affected by poverty, ATD Fourth World's work focuses on supporting families and influencing policies. ATD Fourth World is a member of the International Movement ATD Fourth World, a Non-Governmental Organisation working in 28 countries throughout the developed and developing world. Our vision is to have a society free from poverty where human rights for all people are respected. Our mission is to work alongside people living in poverty to support them in their refusal to accept poverty as a fact of life and find the solutions to eradicate it together. Our aims: -  To empower people experiencing poverty to access and exercise their fundamental rights, to have their voice heard and so lead to fulfilling their potential. - To create greater awareness that in our society chronic poverty puts children at high risk of being removed from their family. -  To persuade policy makers and practitioners to create a social care system with a greater emphasis on supporting families living in poverty and so prevent their break-up. Our approach: -  Learning from the most excluded people and sharing this knowledge with the wider society. - Giving priority to those most affected by poverty, not those who are easiest to reach. -  Involving people in poverty in planning and carrying out projects. - Developing and building on partnerships and links with other organisations and individuals. - Giving people from all walks of life the opportunity to volunteer their time and energy to eradicating poverty. - Contributing to the anti-poverty work of the International Movement ATD Fourth World. Our actions (in CANADA) - People's University - Festival of Learning during the summer - October 17th, World Day to overcome extreme poverty - Participation in the "Collectif pour un Québec sans pauvreté" (Anti-poverty coalition in Quebec)
