It highlight the talents and creativity of children living in extreme poverty and their commitment to making a positive change in society.

Altogether in Dignity (ATD) is an NGO that works with individuals and institutions to find solutions to eradicate extreme poverty. We had been conducting street libraries, art activities and educational seminars for impoverished communities in Metro Manila since 1989.

We regularly visit resettlement areas in Bulacan and Laguna, where some of our ATD families have relocated. 

Our headquarters in the Philippines is at 1225 Labores Street, Pandacan, Manila.
