Welcome to the US home of the international movement ATD Fourth World. We at ATD Fourth World believe that chronic poverty can be eradicated. It can be done by working in partnership with people living in poverty. We work on the grassroots level in over 34 countries and in six areas of the US, and maintain consultative status at the United Nations, UNICEF, UNESCO, and the ILO.
“Wherever men and women are condemned to live in poverty, human rights are violated. To come together to ensure that these rights be respected is our solemn duty.” – Joseph Wresinski
Developed by students from Chief Manuelito Middle School and Gallup Central High School working with ATD Fourth World New Mexico, the exhibit is designed to develop awareness of the rich scientific heritage of New Mexico in a fun setting.
Over this past school year, the middle and high school students worked diligently using plaster, paper mache, rock molds and paint to create realistic and sturdy models of fossil grounds and mountains. Some students did some research on dinosaurs. Other students did some preparatory sketches for the illustrations. (More)
