I do not really remember when I got acquainted with SALT method – I accidentally got to the meeting made by Svetlana Izambaeva where I first heard about SALT method. I can say that I didn’t get it fully and never thought that in a while I will have another meeting. My first SALT experience happened in October 2012…Continue
Swaziland is currently facing a high unemployment rate. Up to 40% of youth aged 15-39 are unemployed and in some age brackets the statistics are above 53%. The rate at which industry absorbs qualified young people is very low in proportion to the numbers produced by tertiary institutions annually. Young graduates with qualifications ranging from diplomas, bachelors, honors degrees and above find getting employed difficult because the job market has no room for them in the current economy.…Continue

Our friend Gloria passed away peacefully on January 21. The letter below expresses our collective commitment to pursue her dreams. Gloria is truly with us in spirit.
Only five weeks ago, I handed over to you at the hospital in Kuching your certificate as Constellation coach and you thanked me. Then I gave you a little wooden box and asked you to open it. You did and brought the box to your lips to kiss its content. These were our Constellation coach…Continue

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…Continue

J’étais opposé à la question du VIH SIDA et ne souhaitais pas qu’on en parle dans l’église et même qu’on détache un pasteur pour ce travail. Car c’est une question des gens de mauvaises vies. Les chrétiens ne sont pas concernés. Mais après l’exposé du Pasteur Koya sur le thème pour quoi l’église doit s’impliquer dans la lutte contre le VIH SIDA et la visualisation du film Gédéon que puis je faire , un pasteur qui a le Virus du SIDA dans le sang,…Continue
CORE (Collaboration for Resilience) Approach is a powerful approach to deal with Multi-Actors Platform and I also found this complimentary to the CLCP (Community Life Competency Process) that AAS program in Cambodia office is trying to adapt in its Community Visioning exercise. While CLCP is an approach that is developed to organize community to develop common dream, do self-assessment (to assess the dream to reality), developing community action plan, the CORE approach would…Continue
