Set up in 1971 by French priest, Abbé Pierre, Emmaus International is made up of 350 member organisations in 37 different countries in Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe. These organisations run income-generating activities at local level with people who have experienced social exclusion to access their fundamental rights and, through their collective action, demonstrate there are credible alternatives to injustice.
