New York - Terça 17 Outubro 2017 - International Day for the Eradication of Poverty

Conte-nos como foi o evento

A full report with pictures and videos is available here. Read, watch and listen, it is full of worth: https://storify.com/ATDFourthWorld/17october2017#publicize

The commemoration started with UN Secretary-General, António Guterres, delivering a video message for the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. 
Participation of people living in poverty has been at the center of the Day's celebration since its very beginning. This year, delegates coming from all over the world shared their experience, intelligence and struggles to keep their families together, to strive to overcome the obstacles, no matter what, and, to face the shame and humiliation related to discrimination and stigmatization. 
They shared how, despite all odds, they still do their best to lead a life in dignity, for themselves and their communities.

Mr. Seamus Neville "Everywhere in the world, extreme poverty separates children from their parents"

Alex Begay "We are struggling to live up to our hopes, hoping for peace."

Ms. Angélique Jeanne "Enough is enough. We are not to be blamed. We are people who resist and who want to build peace.”

Mr. Mahamadou Kone "Seeking our essence as human beings is not a personal quest but a collective one. Our humanity rises from a common base, a common dignity."

Mr. Adrien Delva "There is no risk in fighting extreme poverty, we just have to reach out to others to build peace. And all of us will benefit."

The voices and experiences were heard by the Ambassador of France, François Delattre, and the Ambassador of Burkina Faso to the United Nations, Yemdaogo Eric Tiare, as well as by UNDP Administrator Achim Steiner. All reacted to these messages of struggles and hopes transcending borders and nationalities.

The sense of solidarity and togetherness, between people from different social backgrounds, was a rare and unique achievement on this special day. Donald Lee, President of the International Commitee for October 17, and Isabelle Pypaert-Perrin, Director General of the International Movement ATD Fourth World, also shared their message of support and solidarity with those furthest behind.

This year, the commemoration ended with a time of reflection around the Commemorative Stone in Honor of the Victims of Extreme Poverty located on the North Lawn of the UN Gardens. Here again, unity and solidarity were expressed through speeches from UN officials, the Ambassador of France and delegates with lived experience of poverty. Young people and children read the Call to Action of the Commemorative Stone in the six official languages of the United Nations. 

Symbolizing our personal commitment, a gesture was performed at the Commemorative Stone where we invited the audience to pick a smaller stone, with “Stop Poverty, October 17, 2017” written on it. This acted as a reminder of our contribution and commitment to a create a society, where everyone’s voice and place will be recognized and valued equally.

The Ambassador of France to the UN, François Delattre, was also present at the Commemorative Stone, a gift offered by France to the United Nations in 1996. Taking his time to actively listen to people living in poverty, he reaffirmed his solidarity with those left furthest behind. As did Daniela Bas, Director of the Division for Social Policy and Development of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) .

Martine Le Corre, Deputy Director General of the International Movement of ATD Fourth World, reminded how unacceptable it is that poverty destroys so many lives of men, women, and children. Yet she also highlighted the fact that people living in poverty are fighting each day to get out of their situation and to create peace around them and how each of one of us could take action to support them in their fight. "Together we make this solemn commitment around this stone. Together, we are determined; we will not give up."

Boac - Terça 17 Outubro 2017 - Anti Poverty Symposium

Conte-nos como foi o evento

BOAC, Marinduque- Hosted by the Marinduque State College (MSC), the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) MIMAROPA (Southwestern Tagalog Region of the Philippines) held the 4th Listahanan Antipoverty Symposium yesterday in commemoration of October 17 United Nations (UN) International Day for Eradication of Extreme Hunger and Poverty.

Listahanan stands for "National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction".

This year’s theme, ‘Answering the Call of October 17 to end poverty: A path toward peaceful and inclusive societies.’

The antipoverty symposium is parallel to the 30th anniversary of the UN’s call to action in the eradication of extreme hunger and poverty along with the Listahanan initiatives in increasing the awareness of the MIMAROPAns on the regional profile of the poor, providing all stakeholders a solid and evidenced-based statistics based on the nationwide household assessment results.

According to Listahanan 2015 database from the 584,562 households assessed and validated regionwide, 221,324 or 37.9 percent are identified poor.

A total of 55,363 poor households were identified in Oriental Mindoro; 39,182 in Occidental Mindoro; 14,051 in Marinduque; 20,777 in Romblon; and 91,951 in Palawan.

“This annual event of the department is one of the actions to show its commitment to the international community in achieving the eradication of hunger and poverty,” said Ernie H. Jarabejo.

This provides an avenue to all stakeholders to discuss various initiatives developed and implemented by their own institutions which are biased to the identified poor in Listahanan particularly the vulnerable, disadvantaged communities, sectors, families and individuals.

One highlight of the event is the presentation of the Ambisyon Natin 2040 (Our ambition) by the Philippine National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) - a collective long-term vision and aspirations of the Filipino people for themselves and for the country for the next 25 years. It describes the kind of life that people want to live, as well as how the country will look like by 2040.

Moreover, considering that the province of Marinduque is the Butterfly Capital of the Philippines, Marinduque State College has presented a case study dubbed as Pera Mula Sa Paruparo: The Pro-poor and Pro-Environment Butterfly Livelihood. The case study focused on providing livelihood and employment to the communities through butterfly farming.

The DSWD has presented its experience and gains in the implementation of the Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) in the grass root communities. SLP aims to improve the socio-economic status of poor families by creating more employment and entrepreneurial opportunities.

For this year, SLP has served 553 individuals in Marinduque province for microenterprise development and employment facilitation with Php15 million fund.

The event was participated by various national and local government agencies, civil society organizations and MSC social work students.

Listahanan Antipoverty Symposium

Descrição do evento

The Anti-poverty Symposium of the DSWD-Listahanan (National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction) -MIMAROPA Region is the 4th (since 2014) of its series since it joins the world in the observance of overcoming extreme hunger and poverty.

This year the Symposium will be focusing on evidence-based paper presentations and testimonies on the significant relationship of Population density, population growth rate, poverty and magnitude of poor and environment, which will be presented by various national government agencies, civil society organizations and academic institutions.

Given that Listahanan is the central database of poor households in the country we advocate all stakeholders of social development and social protection agencies to utilize the Database by translating its statistics into solid social development interventions with the focused targeting system while monitoring its magnitude of utilization and degree of intervention in a given family, community and geographic location.
