NEW INC FOURTH WORLD MOVEMENT
Rating: 5 stars 1 review
Issues: Human Services
Location: 7600 Willow Hill Dr Landover MD 20785 USA
In all societies there is a Fourth World - persons, families or groups - whose poverty and exclusion denies them recognition of their value as human beings. This shows that not everyone receives the same means to demonstrate this value and to assert their human rights as a basis for their development.

Fourth World Movement's commitment to supporting those living in persistent poverty in the U.S. and abroad is truly inspiring. These days the break down in communication between groups has contributed to a highly unequal and segregated society. Fourth World Movement tries to address structural barrers so that meaningful dialogue between people can occur. This is truly the first step in overcoming poverty together. I have much admiration for this group and its dedicated members.
