We welcome Mari Lee and the team from Development Communication Solutions (DevCom) as a member joining the Poverty Stoplight Movement.

Development Communication Solutions (DevCom) is a for-profit social enterprise that measures financial and social development gains. They are a specialist communication agency that uses the power of communication to assist individuals, businesses and communities to reach their business and social goals – they design and implement communication strategies and action plans. Their passion is people and social change, and they only take on projects that add value to the business bottom line AND social impact.

DevCom has a number of interesting clients where (lack of) communication is the root of many of their business challenges. DevCom is well versed in community research and will be using Poverty Stoplight to assist organisations such as SAPPI and specific mines to understand and know their communities and then to measure the impact of the social mobilisation strategies they put in place.
