The Consulate supporting ATD Fourth World for the Solidarity Diplomacy Week [fr]
This week we are highlighting solidarity diplomacy. The Consulate General has decided to thank and put first and foremost the NGO ATD Fourth World, an association fighting against extreme poverty.
ATD Fourth World is an organization that works to transform societies by including the victims of natural disaster, famine or armed conflict in their own development and empowerment. The organization is active in more than 30 countries around the world such as Central Africa, Haiti or Guatemala.
ATD Fourth World works in different fields to help populations in need through education and cultural programs, solidaristic economies, human rights and sensitizing people about health and education issues to foster long-term solutions.
To support the action of ATD Fourth World the Consulate General of France in New York will keep you informed during the whole week about the various initiatives this wonderful organization is taking as well as of donations points in New York via its social networks and hashtag #DiplomatieSolidaire.
Collection boxes are available at the first floor of the Consulate. We warmly encourage you to contribute! You can also help them directly there!
