International Day for the Eradication of Poverty
October 17, 2014 in the World
International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is celebrated on October 17, 2014. The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is celebrated every year on October 17 throughout the world. It was officially recognised by the United Nations, but the first commemoration of the event took place in Paris, France, in 1987 when 100,000 people gathered on the Human Rights and Liberties Plaza at the Trocadéro to honour victims of poverty, hunger, violence and fear.
This call was made by Joseph Wresinski (1917–1988) founder of the International Movement ATD Fourth World. One of the main aims of the day is to make the voice of the poor heard. To this end, commemorations often include testimonies from people living in poverty, describing their own experiences or those of people they know.
