Profile Information

Rituu B. Nanda
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?
Website 1:
What do I want to do to spread Community Life Competence?
Facilitate Community Life Competence in my community, Launch a facilitation team, Join a facilitation team, Share about Community Life 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

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

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.

thanks Rituu - I think "real" in that there is quite some lip service on what is local community action as organisations don't want to let go...
