Online - Philippines - Sábado 17 Octubre 2020 - Online: Voices of community members

**At ATD Philippines we have started a campaign on our FB account (mostly in Tagalog and some in English). These posts are prepared with community facilitators and our interns. The testimonies are also video recorded.
You can see an example of the posts in the attached picture: "Where is the justice if there are many lies? Deception of the people, poverty is the answer. When will it end?"
We are also producing a video with a message from friends and kids.


**We have produced a short film with Teatro Balagtas, played by community members and an actor of Teatro Balagtas. It is the ATD contribution to the online ceremony organised by NAPC (National Anti Poverty Commission) that will take place on October 17.
The title of the film in English is "To those who can see us". Its about the reality of a couple struggling to survive during the Covid-19 Enhance Community Quarantine in the context of non-existent social protection.
The online commemoration with the different messages will be streamed on Facebook from 10 to 13:45 Manila time. We will gather a small group of community facilitators in the office to watch it and be together. (The gathering are still restricted to a maximum of 10 people).

**Three representatives from ATD plus institutions will be able to gather for a short moment at the commemorative stone simultaneously to put some flowers on it in honor of the people in poverty who struggle everyday and the people who work alongside them.

Ibadan and Online - Sábado 17 Octubre 2020 - Online conversation

I am thinking that we could have an online conversation on ‘Young People and the Fight for Social and Environmental Justice in Fragile States,’ to explore the intersectionality between social and environmental justice, very specifically within the context of fragile states. 

The conversation will also attempt to delineate the role that young people can play, should be and are playing in this fight, and the opportunities available to them in this digital age, as well as the challenges before them in this era of the 'convergence of crises.'

I will reach out to some of my sisters and brothers who I hope would be  able to join.

Mymensingh - Sábado 17 Octubre 2020 - share children's stories about their experience of poverty

We will celebrate the World Day for Overcoming Extreme Poverty (Oct 17th) in a small scale program.

Mati Bangladesh is celebrating this day with some limited programs for the last couple of years along with the support of ATD Fourth World friends and local partner organizations. 
This year we will organize programs with children and youths from four different communities and two programs will be organized in two places. Due to COVID risk, we will only work with 20 participants in two separate programs with maintaining a proper hygiene system. In this program, we will share children's stories about their experience of poverty which we found during our research program. Also, we will share the Children's dimensions of poverty with them and will have a small talk about it. Later on, the report about this program and photos and videos will be shared on our website www.povertyinbangladesh.com. Which might become also helpful for all of us to share the messages of overcoming extreme poverty.
