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.
