To the awesome members of Poverty Stoplight SA and friends!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your fearless commitment and perseverance in working towards creating a better South Africa. We held a fantastic forum #8 in Cape Town on 6 June and it was great to touch base with everyone! Thank you to everyone who attended our Cape Town Forum session and providing your insights and opinions.

These are the details for our next Forums in two other cities:

Johannesburg Forum:

Fontainebleau Gemeenskapskerk, 126 Rabie St, Fontainebleau, Randburg

Durban Forum:

New people! As you know, we are passionate about seeing impact. We believe that together we are creating a shared language and platform for wisdom and progressive strategies to be shared among all PS members. To help achieve this, we are growing our Poverty Stoplight team and we have taken on two dynamic ladies, Deirdre Botha and Kate Bain, to strengthen our mission.

Deirdre Botha
Deirdre Botha is running with admin, on-boarding new organizations, taking care of ops activities, as well as keeping existing members up to date on PS information.


Kate Bain
Kate Bain is our new Connexion Captain. Kate’s role is to keep in touch with you all, to learn from you, and to share strategies that we find are bringing the biggest impact around our beautiful country – what’s working and what’s not.

Check out some of our findings across all surveys!

In a few months we are hoping to bring you more detailed analysis across baseline, 12month, 24month and other longitudinal measures.

We are also pleased to announce that we are working on generating a map of South Africa that will display where our members are making impact across the country, as well as a macro view of our aggregated data.
