An example of effective communication.

SALT visit with teenagers with a physical handicap in Brussels

I'm getting ready to participate in a SALT visit this morning. It is the third time we visit the Schaller school with teenagers with a physical handicap.
This time it is quite special because we go with a friend of Mimi who is paralyzed. BUT he's a lawyer and he grew up in Congo! Mimi always says that when you talk to him for 5 min, you forget his handicap...

We'll talk about their common dream and make some drawings. I'll post some pictures!

Have a great day!
