We welcome Josephine McClellan and the team from Ikamva Labantu as a member joining the Poverty Stoplight Movement.

Ikamva Labantu (“the future of our nation”) is a community-driven, non-profit organisation that delivers social support services to underdeveloped communities in Cape Town. Their grassroots work focuses on the lack of quality early childhood development programmes, the growing number of orphans, abused and neglected children, and the large number of unsupported and isolated elderly who financially support their families.

Ikamva Labantu are going to use the Poverty Stoplight approach with their (a) seniors’ programme and (b) their ECD principals’ programme, to create a baseline of community poverty with special interest in the activities and status of the aged and ECD Principals.
