نورنا حي - Our light is alive - Notre lumière est vivante
نورنا حي - Our light is alive - Notre lumière est vivante
في ١٧تشرين الأول ٢٠٢١ الموافق ل 17 أكتوبر من سنة 2021 وبينما لبنان تشهد يوما من الإنتفاضات والمسيرات بسبب الأزمة الاقتصادية والاجتماعية والسياسية الذي تعيشها البلاد. أسر شباب حي النبع ببيروت بالإحتفال باليوم العالمي لمكافحة الفقر المدقع ١٧ أكتوبر. و هكذا وبعد أيام قليلة تمكنوا من جمع سكان حي النبعة ليقولوا من خلال شموع أن نورنا حي. شعار جاء ليعبروا من خلاله عن مواجهة انقطاع التيار الكهربائي اليومي، والتحديات الهائلة في مجالات التعليم والصحة والغذاء. جملة هي صرخة أمل، وتأكيد للكرامة

Notre lumière est vivante
Notre lumière est vivante
Le 17 octobre 2021, alors que le Liban vivait une journée de révoltes et d’émeutes à cause de la situation de crise économique, sociale et politique, des jeunes du quartier de Nabaa, à Beyrouth, n’ont pas voulu se résigner à une Journée Mondiale du Refus de la Misère sans célébration. Quelques jours plus tard, ils ont réussi à rassembler des habitants du quartier Nabaa pour dire, à travers le symbole des bougies, « Notre lumière est vivante ». Face aux coupures de courant quotidiennes, et aux énormes défis dans les domaines de l’éducation, de la santé et de l’alimentation, cette phrase est un cri d’espoir, un sursaut de dignité.

30. Our Light is Alive! - 30 Years of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty
30. Our Light is Alive! - 30 Years of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty
This episode title is inspired by the courageous group of young people from Naab'a, a neighbourhood in Eastern Beirut, who refuse to give up hope despite of everything oppressing them. In this episode, we pay tribute to the frontline poverty fighters and peace builders and celebrate the wealth of wisdom, solidarity and talent. Feast your ears for a full hour of meaningful poetry and music from around the world. Dignity Voices is brought to you by the International Committee for October 17.  The original idea for the 30 podcasts was inspired by our work with the Collecitf France Refuser la Misère (Michel Besse, Geoffrey Renimel, Igor Czerny, the young volunteers, the school children) who prepared the Poverty Fighters: Peace Builders - 30 Years of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty roundtable, photo exhibition, the paintings and other activities at CESE and Trocadero Human Rights Plaza back in June. THANK YOU. We would like to thank all the guests who featured on the programmes, the Pole Expressions Publiques (PEPs) team at ATD Fourth World (Jeff Steiner, Nathalie Benezet, Alvero Iniesta), the teams behind the videos that were produced and used for some of the podcasts, the voice over artists ( Jos Lemmers, Zina Lemmers, Florence Altmayer, Michel Besse and Zubeir Woozeer),  the Forum for Overcoming Poverty and  Secretariat of the International Committee (Marina Mingot, Kysly Joseph, Florence Altmayer). As the person responsible for the initiative, I would like to pay a special thanks to Petra Lemmers, who offered her summer to Dignity Voices and assisted me in so many different ways during the intense three months of production. Of course, a huge thanks to those who supported the initiative so enthusiastically from the beginning (in particular Donald Lee and Monica Chowdhury) , the members of the lnternational Leadership Team (Chantal Consolini, Bruno Dabout, Martin Kalissa), those who advised (Herman van Breen, Geneviève Tardieu, Janet Nelson,  Aria Ribieras), those who actively shared the podcasts on social media (Pierre Klein, Diana Skelton, Dann Kenningham and many others) and ALL the members of the International Committee for October 17 who enthusiastically hosted many of the podcasts.   To all of you, I say a heartfelt thank you. I feel so proud of you all and what a tribute we paid to this amazing human rights movement called the ATD Fourth World!

“Ravine l’Espérance” (French/Francais)-  Le 12 janvier 2010, un violent tremblement de terre a frappé Haïti rendant dans la seule ville de Port-au-Prince, laissant des millions de personnes sans abri. Il fallait raconter une histoire sur le courage des Haïtiens qui ont toujours fait face à l'impossible et ont traversé cette catastrophe sans jamais baisser les bras.

Dans ce podcast, vous entendrez les co-auteurs - Jean-Michel Defromont , Jacqueline Plaisir, Louis-Adrien Delva, Kysly Joseph, David Lockwood, Jacques Petidor, Laura Nerline Laguerre.

12. Families in Poverty - Key Partners in Development
12. Families in Poverty - Key Partners in Development
Do people living in extreme poverty really benefit from development policies implemented around the world? How should they be involved in decision making and evaluation? In this podcast we give an example from 2013 of how ATD Fourth world consulted people who live in deep poverty to add their knowledge and expertise to the evaluation of the Millennium Development Goals. In the Philippines residents of four impoverished communities of metro manila took part in such meetings with UNICEF partners, academics, community workers and policy makers and this podcast is about involving the poorest in such action research. See - https://youtu.be/eyzgsAXh03c This episode is in the UNHEARD VOICES - BREAKING THE SILENCE OF POVERTY part of the Dignity Voices series. Over the 30 years of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, there have been many examples of how people with lived experiences of poverty are breaking the silence and speaking out, how they are fighting stigma, how they are participating in decision making processes that directly affect their lives. There are inspirational stories of change.
