About Me:
I am a founding member of the Constellation for AIDS Competence. Working for the past 20 years in stimulating and connecting local responses as part of a facilitation team. Born in the United States, but a citizen of the world.
My dream:
That people and communities across the world would be connected through their strengths
My concern:
That organisations and systems that control so many of the resources and policy are far behind local communities in the response
I'm proud of:
Being a learner, being a participant in local response and being part of world-wide team of so many fantastic people
What I think of Community Life Competence:
We didn't invent it....we learned it from local communities
What do I want to do to spread Community Life Competence?
Facilitate AIDS Competence in my community, Share about AIDS Competence with potential partners; friends; colleagues, I want to apply SALT in my own life (S: Stimulate; Support; A: Appreciate; L: Listen; Learn; Link; T: Transfer; Team), I want to share my experience on my blog in Ning
The small secretariat of the Constellation also needs help. Do you want to help? I want to:
Writing skills, Share AIDS Competence with potential partners, online facilitation, Other
If you choose other, please specify
Support to mentor new coaches/facilitators

Home visits lead to wider community response

Posted on February 9, 2014 at 11:30pm 7 Comments

During a recent Constellation LEARN meeting in Belgium, we participated in a SALT visit to a sports club being facilitated in primary schools.  The founders of the club shared with us their approach, which resonated on many levels with the work we do in the Constellation.  One practice that the club uses to build relationships and influence change are home visits to the club members.  This sharing reminded me again of how important home visits have been in my experience, and I wanted to…

WASH and Community Life Competence

Posted on April 22, 2011 at 1:07am 1 Comment

The past 2 weeks have found Boris, Autry and I in Suriname working with a fantastic team to integrate WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) with the community life competence process.  There is the phrase - 'Water is Life'.  We have heard reflections this week that you can have water, but no real 'life' in communities.  Trust, respect and vision are also needed.  The skilled, passionate, committed team in Suriname is going to teach us all alot about this in the coming months.  Thank you in…

It got me thinking about the word 'integration'.  Seems everyone is using it these days, and as with many things we start saying it and stop thinking deeply about…
