Changing Perspectives on Poverty
We know that poverty and inequality are explicitly and inextricably linked, and in the face of continued poverty, many development evaluators are going back to the drawing board to re-examine why people are poor and what can be done structurally and institutionally to eliminate poverty by confronting inequality. On the ground in South Africa, through the Poverty Stoplight scorecards and household stories, we are learning how to engage with our clients, employees and beneficiaries in a different way to optimise social impact. It’s about co-ownership and understanding where the responsibility for change lies.

Poverty Stoplight is a poverty eradication approach that measures aspects of multidimensional poverty in the families of the people that we serve and with whom we work. With 16 organisations (and counting) implementing or supporting this approach in South Africa, there are many findings, learnings and challenges to be explored as we work to encourage people to make changes in those areas of their lives that they can control.

Want to learn more about the Poverty Stoplight approach that has been introduced into more than 18 countries around the world?

Come join us for a stimulating day of sharing and engaging with colleagues and peers from non-profits, social enterprises, corporates, foundations, academia and government, as we explore and celebrate the journeys of those who have joined the Poverty Stoplight Movement.
