|One day, in a village, a young farmer living with HIV was sent
out of the home and his share of the property was denied to him by
his brothers. A local religious leader, Mahanta Swamiji felt very
disturbed by the stigma and discrimination and decided to intervene
. He contacted the family and started discussions with them about
acceptance and duty towards one’s family. The family which had been
most reluctant to take the PLHIV in, were very touched by the
Swamiji’s concern and words. The young man was taken back home
again and he got his property back. Inspired by the Swamiji, each
member of the AIDS Action Committee has started taking up small
actions of inclusion and support individually and as a group.

|This is an experience from SALT Visit to RH
Competence at Manonjaya Sub-district in Tasikmalaya - West Java
Indonesia (November 2009) on inclusion. Groups of fathers that
is really dominate SALT visit is becoming very supporting group
when they were equiped with sufficient knowledge on ARH issues and
better understanding on SALT as ways of thinking and working.
Initially they came to community to preach, to teach since some of
them were teacher, head of villages and know become religious
preacher. I learned that the way they approach community not for
teaching and preaching but asking a questions and dream of
neighbours, nieces, grandsons/daughters, siblings, youths and of
course community gathering they cultivated on ARH issues and
appreciate their current understanding. They link the community by
information sources/service providers to provide complete
information community need. I learn inclusion from they way they
try to open discussion ARH issues and what can we contribute as
community members to make this come true. This were not there at
the sub-district, even there were not exist even at the father's
group's mind. That ARH issues were not simply not their bussines.
Now its issues is simple there at the father's group's mind,
speeches, approaches. I am really glad to know and learn that SALT
approches is trigerring model group to be include.
