On the 17th of October 1987, defenders of human and civil rights from every continent gathered on this plaza. They paid homage to the victims of hunger, ignorance and violence. They affirmed their conviction that human misery is not inevitable. They pledged their solidarity with all people who, throughout the world, strive to eradicate extreme poverty. “Wherever men and women are condemned to live in extreme poverty, human rights are violated. To come together to ensure that these rights be respected is our solemn duty.” – Father Joseph Wresinski
ONE voice matters.
YOUR voice matters.
We all have unique gifts for sharing love and compassion in the world. As humans, we are wired for connection, and long for a sense of purpose while on the Earth. We want to matter. We want to belong. We long to be part of something larger than ourselves. What is that mission for you? What do you want to be part of? How do you want to make a difference in this life?
Father Joseph Wresinski declared 30 years ago, on the Trocadero Human Rights Plaza in Paris before 100,000 people, that to live in poverty is to be denied basic human rights. His voice inspired the observance of October 17th around the world, and resulted in the United Nations recognizing this date 5 years later. Eradicating poverty is now at the helm of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Host a BeadforLife Marketplace
Want to share the beauty of handmade Ugandan jewelry with your friends and family? This holiday season marks the final chance to order your own Marketplace and raise funds and awareness to end global poverty. As this international NGO strives ambitiously to lift 1 million people from poverty by 2027, they recognized the importance of re-evaluating their own business model, just as they teach the women in their entrepreneurial training programs. As a result, their innovative 6-month Street Business School Program is replacing the 18-month Beads to Business model. They discovered they could reach more women and families at a lower cost per participant teaching the core of the original 18-month model. This proven and effective program teaches the fundamentals of launching a small business and puts deeply impoverished women to work faster.
