Reflections at Georgetown airport

As I was sitting at Georgetown airport, waiting for my flight, I overheard a guy some distance away saying on the phone “This country is very corrupt …”. I couldn’t help looking up at him and thinking, “The poor guy! He didn’t know what he missed!” I didn’t know what he had experienced while here and what ‘lens’ he’s been using, but obviously he must have been using a different…

This will enable capacity building not just within a particular organisation or constituency but with… Continue

"What's the Weather Inside?"

My work day did not begin standing in a circle with familiar friendly faces sharing "what the weather is like inside" as has been the ritual of the last few days. But apart from the circle and the friendly faces...I found myself going through this process as I sat in my Office.



What a great way to start your day! Identifying your "weather" helps you to acclimatise your mind for the day ahead, it also helps you to consciously change your weather conditions…

What salt means to me

I don't see salt just as method or tool but rather a way of life. This mean once we adopt it within our lives we become salt and hence we ourself become the tool for change.

The power of SALT

Its my privilege to apply the SALT after being ignorant of sum facts. Now, as a team, we will continue to empower prisoners and those in the rehabilitation center so as to produce better

rounded individuals who will be reintegrated into society. When the message goes into the home then we

disease making our work much…

SALT in action - Peer Educator's training

Today I began a training for 15 new Peer Educators within our HIV and AIDS education and awareness programme.
