Causes of occurrence have ranged from Depression, Poverty, Retrenchment at work, Poor…Continue

This past weekend Veronique and I both facilitated the training weekend for a second group of community facilitators for the city of Vilvoorde.
The two days happened in a great learning and SALTy way. The participants of this small group were very eager to learn, to experience, to share and to brainstorm.
At one stage during the training weekend we asked the participants to go out on the streets and have SALT conversations with people on the streets about their dreams for…Continue
En 2015 j'ai proposé à une paroisse protestante de les accompagner dans l'élaboration d'un projet d'église en utilisant l'approche SALT.
Nous avons fait tout le processus au cours d'un WE avec un groupe de 5-8 personnes, et le tout a été présenté à une majorité des paroissiens et sympathisants qui nous ont rejoints pour la célébration du dimanche matin.
La paroisse a commencé à mettre en œuvre leurs actions mais tout s'est essoufflé suite à un accident, une grave maladie, etc.…Continue
And the story continues...
The mamas (care workers) at the Orphanage St Enfant Jésus of Abomey (OSEJ) are celebrating. Grouping and taking action(meeting with their superior) to improve their working status has finally brought the results they wanted!
After a first negative response from their superior, she has finally accepted to subscribe the mamas in the social security! They will have official contracts and they will be able to benefit from medical…Continue
In December I began a more formal application of SALT in the community I am working in. Up to now, I have been practising my communication techniques in how I interact with the wonderful residents on the urban inner city London estate on which I work. Our project is an informal, ABCD project where, a couple of days a week, we hang out at a borrowed social housing flat, inviting residents in for cups of tea and letting the ideas they naturally begin to speak…Continue

Do we Europeans behave like the legendary frog? You know the story: the frog was living in a pond whose water was heating so slowly that it noticed nothing until it died in boiling water. Is our fixation on “the economy” so strong that we pay no attention to the fate of fellow human beings? Are we so mesmerized by the current US excesses that we leave unnoticed the gradual abandonment of our own values? Not long ago, I was proud to belong to Europe, a beacon of human…Continue
In the first week of March 2017, Dr Jean-Louis Lamboray (JL) arrived at Chennai on a 3-day visit in connection with the launch of his book, "What Makes Us Human".
His three days' stay was a packed schedule for JL as he had interactive sessions with South India Aids Action Programme (SIAAP) staff, the students of the reputed Women's Christian College (WCC) and then the scheduled book launch.
My meeting up with JL again after I first met him at the Global Learning Festival (GLF)…Continue
Il y a plus de 18 mois que je vis loin de ma famille, mes amis ainsi que de mon mari pour des raisons professionnelles. Les autres collègues, se demandent comment puis-je vivre et tenir si longtemps sans mon mari et dans un environnement très incertain? La réponse à cette question est très simple et facile; je leur ai juste répondu que je vis le SALT. En bref, j’applique les principes SALT dans ma vie et j’ai opté de voir plus le positif dans ce que je fais. L’unique force et source de ma…Continue

They contracted the international NGO, The Constellation, to carry out these reflections and develop a harmonised…Continue

It has been a pleasure to meet young committed people who are all, in one way or…Continue
I find myself reflecting on the experiences I have shared over the years since being exposed to the SALT approach. Sometimes I wonder what would have happened had I not been exposed to the approach. I remember Usa and Gaston who introduced us to the approach, they were fantastic. The workshop was different, not the regular workshop that I was accustomed to, there was something exciting in the air. I was made to reflect on who I was as a human. It was a weird question "why are you human?"…Continue
