IMPORTANT

The Poverty Stoplight approach is a relational tool that creates expectations in those being surveyed. Membership and usage of the tool is only endorsed for those organisations who are actually running poverty-elimination programmes and who intend to use the information resulting from the surveys to do something about it. Using the tool for research purposes only or where data generation is the main outcome is not endorsed.

“When TCB came to do the Poverty Stoplight, it was good because my 18-year-old daughter was there to answer some questions, and it helped her to feel part of it. My business is doing well and I am achieving my goals that I set in coaching when we looked at my Stoplight colours.”

“It was rather an eye opener for most of them (the families) to look at poverty based on the questions they had to answer. They relaxed as I continued with the questions. They saw themselves in a better position to transit and achieve in the next year what they had answered as either Poor or Very Poor in the survey.”

“I was scared when they came to do the Poverty Stoplight because I did not know what they were expecting and my house was messy because they came in the morning. My family were so worried and I started thinking maybe I was too ‘green’. My aunt and cousin and child were there – my family are very supportive and help me a lot. I made it a goal to save my profit money and pay my policies and I am doing that slowly.”

“The Poverty Stoplight impacted my family because it made them understand that I needed their support 100%. My older sister was there when they came, and it made her understand my goals. The PS helped me to see what I need to change and I have set goals to change specific things. It is better to work towards something that I know instead of fumbling.”

“The Poverty Stoplight tool has been introduced nationally to all branches of TCB and it has exceeded all expectations. We are delighted. We now do home visits with each family (during the recruitment phase) and have integrated this tool into our programme. We have seen significant changes in the way families are taking responsibility for their own journeys out of poverty and are encouraged by the results we are observing.”
