Online - Philippines - Sabato 17 Ottobre 2020 - Online: Voices of community members

**At ATD Philippines we have started a campaign on our FB account (mostly in Tagalog and some in English). These posts are prepared with community facilitators and our interns. The testimonies are also video recorded.
You can see an example of the posts in the attached picture: "Where is the justice if there are many lies? Deception of the people, poverty is the answer. When will it end?"
We are also producing a video with a message from friends and kids.


**We have produced a short film with Teatro Balagtas, played by community members and an actor of Teatro Balagtas. It is the ATD contribution to the online ceremony organised by NAPC (National Anti Poverty Commission) that will take place on October 17.
The title of the film in English is "To those who can see us". Its about the reality of a couple struggling to survive during the Covid-19 Enhance Community Quarantine in the context of non-existent social protection.
The online commemoration with the different messages will be streamed on Facebook from 10 to 13:45 Manila time. We will gather a small group of community facilitators in the office to watch it and be together. (The gathering are still restricted to a maximum of 10 people).

**Three representatives from ATD plus institutions will be able to gather for a short moment at the commemorative stone simultaneously to put some flowers on it in honor of the people in poverty who struggle everyday and the people who work alongside them.

Online - Giovedì 15 Ottobre 2020 - Poems to Challenge Poverty

Please join this online event to hear a selection of moving poems on the everyday experiences of living in poverty in the UK today.

Register to access the event, 17:00 – 19:00 CEST

All of us, from across the four nations of this country, know from personal experience what poverty is like. We have written poems to express what poverty is and how it feels to have your voice heard. Our poems are about what needs to change and what uplifts us.

We are coming together to add our voices to events taking place to mark Challenge Poverty Week around the country

This evening of poetry is also being co-organised by the APLE (Addressing Poverty with Lived Experience) Collective and All Together in Dignity/ATD Fourth World, On Road Media and 4in10: London's Child Poverty Network.

We hope you will join us for an evening of inspiration and solidarity.

Mymensingh - Sabato 17 Ottobre 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.
