ATD Fourth World Philippines
ATD Fourth World Philippines has been in existence since 1989. Through the assistance and support from friends and some organizations, ATD Philippines has established links with 4 Manila impoverished communities, namely North Cemetery, Hilum and Lozada in Pandacan, Ilalim ng Tulay (Under the Bridge) at Quirino Avenue in Paco. The team also regularly visits resettlement areas of some of the ATD families in Bulacan and Laguna which are located outside Metro Manila. In all the communities, ATD Philippines has the following regular programs: Street Libraries, Forums, Workshops, and the Festival of Learning. Aside from these programs, ATD has done Tapori activities like the Silhouette Campaign in schools and museums and livelihood seminars for the adults. One of its newest programs is mentoring and tutorial to out-of-school youths. This program was initiated borne out of the concern of many parents to prevent their children from taking drugs and sniffing rugby.
