When people tell stories in a right environment, it is not bragging. It is empowerment!

Siobhan Marsh, a young professional from Generate Worldwide and based in Melbourne was visiting India with her students. She invited me to speak to her students on – how can young people engage mindfully in community building and development. For me this was a SALT visit to the group of youth about 16-18 years of age. I was not the expert. What could I do to learn from them and they could learn from each other?…See More

Profile Information

Name
Rituu B. Nanda
Organisation
Share facilitator,The Constellation & Evaluation Facilitator at Institute of Social Studies Trust
About Me:
Am still asking the question -who am I?
I love SALT but practice is difficult.
I want to explore the connection between SALT and spirituality.

My professional interests are facilitating community conversations and action, participatory action research, participatory evaluation, gender and equity issues; complexity and systems thinking; Public health is the sector I have worked mostly in.
My dream:
I have these dreams,the closer I get to them in this life time, I would have achieved my life purpose:
-Be non-judgemental
-Have no expectations from anyone as they are cause of misery
-to be selfless in whatever I do. If I help I do no expect anything in return, if I care I have no selfish motive. Otherwise its business.
-to connect as a human being with others
-to be appreciative
-to be a deep and compassionate listener and also listen to my inner voice
My concern:
How can I think & behave in a positive manner when I encounter negativity
How can I not complain when I am in difficulty but embrace every situation as an experience
I'm proud of:
coordinating the Global Learning Festival in Chennai, my dream come true:-)
What I think of Community Life Competence:
Helps me in my spiritual journey; its the purpose of my existence. Have I come home?

Community designs its own reminder

Posted on January 3, 2018 at 9:30pm 1 Comment

In current times, we use technology to remind us - our phones, google calendar and so on. In our project on immunization in Assam in a tiny village, people wanted to remember the date of next vaccination schedule of their babies. What did they do? Read on...

In Village Silamahikhati (Kamrup Rural) where facilitator VHAA- Deepak Nath…

Rehabilitation programme centred around residents of rehab centre

Posted on August 25, 2017 at 9:30pm 0 Comments

Vanessa Moorghen, Mauritius shared this experience with me during the Global Learning Festival in 2016

I work with Chrysalide, a rehabilitation centre for women who use drugs and alcohol.

From the beginning of Chrysalide in 2004 we structured the centre in a way that a person coming for admission should start her therapy the day after joining. This means that the new resident has to immediately take on the responsibilities at the centre including therapy, participating…

Self-assessment triggers conversation on gender roles

Posted on July 25, 2017 at 9:30pm 2 Comments

Let's go to Northeastern part of my country, India. A remote, beautiful village with paddy fields, surrounded by hills- Tinkonia Part one, Bongaigaon, Assam. This is the location of my story where we are working on immunization.

For the past three months our CNES team has been doing home visits in this community. On 5th June, we gathered different sub-groups in the community to discuss what is their dream for healthy children in the village.

Then next day on 6th June about 40…

Ilkley community response to learning disability- "Sowing the seeds, then let them flower"

Posted on May 24, 2017 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

Local response- in the Constellation we define a local response (am citing Philip Forth from our blended learning programme)- A community can take action to deal with a challenge that it faces. These actions form a 'Local Response'. They contrast with a solution imposed on a community by experts from outside the community.Last week, Phil took us for a SALT visit in his town Ilkely. Here is what I observed on the local response.

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. We would like to associate with you to share and enhance journalistic skills of children and adolescent girls for their sustainable empowerment.

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.

I know only a very few things on the work being done by you all. would like to know more and participate in one or two events you are organizing. would like to discuss about the tools and tips on health education and health related training programs. Congrats for your committed and concerted work.
