Let Us Give a Voice to People Living in Poverty

People experiencing poverty do not have the capacity to represent their interests and contribute to the necessary change, but their voice is crucial to effective poverty reduction policies. Using the Forum Theater method, more than one country has adopted legislative changes based specifically on the experiences of people experiencing poverty. The Forum's theater sessions help to bring together people experiencing poverty, politicians, ministries and municipalities with a focus on de-escalating tensions, empowering people and engaging in open dialogue on policy agendas to tackle poverty in the country. .

The project aims to hold sessions in all districts of Lithuania. They will be attended by people experiencing poverty, representatives of municipalities and the Ministry of Social Security and Labor.

"I am impressed with the use of Forum Theater, which solves problems creatively."

“I didn’t feel like I was from other institutions. Everyone was equal. "

"There could be more events where people talk on an equal."

We hear a lot of such feedback from people experiencing poverty.

"I am delighted that regional meetings have taken place this year. All of those meetings were attended by representatives of the ministry, and I really see the point in analyzing the issues of each area separately and looking for a way to respond to a particular place, both the need for and the supply of services. And I want to thank you for a format that makes it possible to have direct contact, to hear first-hand all the life situations and social problems we face. Sometimes it helps to overestimate the direction, the established standard of how we understood the solutions to problems. I see a lot of meaning in that. ” Minister of Social Security and Labor Monika Navickienė
