Dar-es-Salaam - Miércoles 17 Octubre 2018 - World Day for Overcoming Extreme Poverty

Here under is a retrospective of what ATD Fourth World Tanzania did in 2017.

Details for October 17 2018 will follow
 

In 2017 ATD Fourth World Tanzania celebrated the World Day for Overcoming Poverty on Saturday the 14th – before the worldwide celebration the 17th october as every year.

The 3-hour long commemoration saw personal testimonies from people with direct experience of poverty, messages from around the world, drama, songs, poems, dancing, and an invitation to the participants to sign a special Call to Action as part of ATD’s International Stop Poverty 2017 Campaign. It was a powerful and moving occasion which deepened the commitment of those already involved in the collective struggle to overcome extreme poverty and also to attract new commitments.

The event was at Biafra place, a public space to enable all citizens to take part at the event. Through words, drama, music, and testimonies we showed how extreme poverty undermines our freedom and violates our most fundamental rights. Stories of life from Dar es Salaam, Mbeya, Dodoma and Njombe reminded us of the struggle of people to overcome extreme difficulties and search a way to peace.

It is very important to gather people on a day like this because we live in classes, separated from one another. When we live such a gathering together there is something building. Then we all realize that we are all the same. People who don’t live poverty come to understand the efforts of those who fight to overcome exclusion. They discover the challenges they have to face. When people living in poverty speak and other people listen, changes can come about. It is very important to gather people on a day like this. Rehema A. (Participant from Tandale, Dar es Salam).

Manila - Sábado 11 Agosto 2018 - Preparation with youth

On August 11, 2018, youth from six communities from Manila and relocation sites made their own posters with a message for October 17, World Day for Overcoming Extreme Poverty.

During an art and cultural gathering with 50 youth from different communities, ATD Fourth World, Museo Pambata and Teatro Balagtas asked them : « What are you hoping for your community and society ? ».

It was a great opportunity to know each other better, to discuss with young people about their personal hopes and hopes for a more just society, to learn basics of theater, and to participate in workshops.

One message in the forefront states: "The community is united and equal in all matters"
