SOCAP 365: Welcome Party: Poverty Stoplight comes to Washington, D.C.

February 10, 2017 @ 5:00 PM7:00 PM UTC+0


What if poverty solutions came from asking marginalized communities what their needs actually are? By enabling policy makers, grant makers, and impact investors to hear directly from impoverished populations, Povertystoplight.org has been successfully lifting people out of poverty in Paraguay for the last decade by gathering detailed information at a household level to inform an action plan. Now up and running in South Africa, the UK and New Orleans, Poverty Stoplight is coming to Washington, D.C. in collaboration with Neighborhood Economics, Green Scheme, 4P Foods and Ward 8 community partners. This special program will bring together the D.C. collaborators with a special appearance by Martin Burt, founder of Poverty Stoplight, who will be in town from Paraguay. Learn more about the partnership here.
