What is ATD FOURTH WORLD PHILIPPINES?
We are an international non-governmental organization, with no religious or political affiliation, that works with individuals and institutions towards the eradication of extreme poverty. Working in partnership with people facing persistent poverty, ATD human rights-based approach focuses on supporting families and individuals through grassroots presence and involvement in disadvantaged communities.
In the Philippines, we are registered as a branch of the International Movement ATD Fourth World at the Securities and Exchange Commission since April 22, 1996.
As of June 2016, ATD Fourth World Philippines is composed of two international permanent volunteers, twenty regular part-time volunteers and supporters, and fifteen facilitators living in the disadvantaged areas.
We are present in the following communities:
Hilum and Lozada, Pandacan
Quirino Avenue, Paco
Manila North Cemetery
Resettlement Sites outside Manila
What do we do?
ATD Philippines has the following programs:
1) Street Libraries
In the different communities, volunteers and friends conduct book reading and storytelling, drawing and painting to stimulate the children's learning capability and creativity. The program is also designed to involve the older boys and girls to assist their younger siblings to express their potential skills and talents.
In this gathering, the adults from the communities share and express their life experiences. It is also an opportunity to dialogue with people from other backgrounds and to build mutual understanding and respect.
3) Festival of Learning.
During summer months, ATD celebrates the Festival of Learning. It is an educational, recreational and cultural event for children who have less opportunity to enjoy the summer vacation. Activities include book reading, storytelling, arts and crafts workshops, drama sessions and presentations to hone their potential talents. Outings with their families also provide sources of learning, time to enjoy the beauty of nature and more importantly to celebrate life! Artists and friends are welcome to join and share the best of their talents and skills.
4) International Day for Overcoming Extreme Poverty.
Every year on October 17, the International Day for Overcoming Extreme Poverty, people from all sections of society gather together with people living in poverty to renew the call for a common commitment to overcome extreme poverty.
5) Ang Galing!
Ang Galing! is the weekly tutorial program for children (6 y old and above) who don't know how to read and write in Tagalog.
Through one-on-one sessions and informal personalized teaching with games, we help the children to rediscover that learning can be fun and to rediscover that they are intelligent, like everyone.
Ang Galing! supports also the educational efforts of the parents and is in link with the schools where the children are enrolled. Weekly tutorials take place in the Manila North Cemetery (Saturday: 9-12 nn).
Why should you join our INTERNSHIP PROGRAM?
We continuously seek growth in our teams. Our Philippine team needs more Filipino (permanent) volunteers to implement our programs. Our internship program is a way to invite friends to learn, know, and understand our organization and approach in fighting poverty. It also a first step to those interested to become a permanent volunteer to join our Volunteer Corps.
Through our internship program, our interns will gain insightful knowledge and experience on our vision, mission, and activities. They will participate in our activities and help us fulfill our series of planned programs for the year.
Who can join?
You don't need to be a college student or graduate. We welcome anyone who has volunteered or wishes to volunteer on a regular basis in any of our programs – Ang Galing, Street Library, Festival of Learning, October 17, Forum, and Workshops. If you wish to be an intern, feel free to contact us.
