If I were to rate the most powerful moments of my work with communities, then Knowledge Fair in Assam would stand out. It was messy, confusing at times but very enriching and a delight to one who believes that communities can do things for themselves. In Assam, for the past one year we have been working in 90 villages in 3 districts with two organisations- VHAA and CNES. During the Knowledge fair we organised four events in April end. We did one event each in the three districts and the…

My experience in this particular is brand new. Most of my experiences of community both good & challenging have been faith-based in the United States, Canada, & Puerto Rico. 

For several years I was active in the Mankind Project local community in Cleveland, OH. New Warriors is a rite of passage for men with weekly groups for support. I facilitated several of these during my time there. 

I love everything about community, especially sitting in circle. Currently, I am a co-host for monthly World Cafe online calls. Also, taken a course on The Circle Way. 

My BIG wild idea is a sustainable ecosystem where each of us is supported for life. We have someone greeting us at birth and usually helping us leave at death. Our first breath is witnessed by another human being. And, so is our last. Why not have life support for every breath in between? From cradle to grave.

Rituu, 

Your post is inspiring! I had to grab the last part and repeat it here:

Everyone knows what isn't right...their flaws, their weaknesses, but few people know and focus on their strengths, the talents, their skills, their blessings... what is right. It's true isn't it... when our own mental patterns guide us we feel so empowered, no matter what challenges we have, no matter what mountains we need to climb, we make a plan and go about getting it done. More importantly, when we share our dream with others they feel the need to help us fulfill our dreams. We dream together and each other’s words feed our minds and stimulate thought and action.

I end with a beautiful quote by Dom Helder Camara: When we are dreaming alone it is only a dream. When we are dreaming with others, it is the beginning of reality.

Dear Rituu,

Thank you for your very kind words. I will try and do a few statements. At the moment however, I'm bogged down with some strict deadlines.

Cheers!

Hi Rituu, 

Thank you for your kind words. A dream that for me, must become a reality. We need each other.

It is experienced that children and adolescent girls can provide unbiased feedback and raised the issues affecting them, their families, schools and wider community-if equipped with skills, opportunities and platforms for participation. We are building skills of children and adolescent girls for up streaming their issues through writing their stories, participating in community level participatory planning on their needs, communicating with service providers, influencing gendered and development oriented behaviors. Oracle under its CSR initiatives is supporting us for empowering adolescent girls in sphere of integrated  community development in Barabanki district of Uttar Pradesh.

HHave used SALT in my studies especially when doing our project work this has helped us to complete our project faster and incorporated everyone's point of view. This has helped all members to own the work done by the group as their own and justify information given by the members like it was their original idea.
