Poverty Stoplight defines poverty from a multidimensional approach. The organization aims to motivate families to become actors, not objects, of development and poverty elimination. Our project aimed to adapt the indicators of poverty to Armenian conditions and portray the potential of adopting the tool to nonprofit organizations and governmental agencies. To accomplish our goal, we completed research and interviews to identify the appropriate indicators of poverty for Armenia and then tested the tool with 81 families. Through the testing process, our team found that our tool was statistically valid and reliable and is ready to be piloted by organizations that are willing to adopt the tool in Armenia.
