Stories about Response (1,873)

Self-assessment in large groups

Dear community, some time ago I posted my ideas about facilitating CLCP in really large groups. These were some of my experiences which might be helpful if you face that challenge: 

If you have 200 participants, I would aim to get at least 5 facilitators. 10 is even better.

- Brief well together the day before the event with these people. Prepare the room for both plenary (in a circle) as well as 5 or more groups with sufficient A4 paper, markers, flipchart…

Community designs its own reminder

In current times, we use technology to remind us - our phones, google calendar and so on. In our project on immunization in Assam in a tiny village, people wanted to remember the date of next vaccination schedule of their babies. What did they do? Read on...

Every Child a V.I.P.!!!

Every Child a V.I.P.!

Every school has them: students who know and care about the digital world. Smart schools know how best to use these students. For example, by inviting them to form an IT “help desk” for the school and teachers.

What do we have in common?

What do we have in common?

Before we (Nemo-group: Noemí, Amir, Birgitta and Margot) made our first SALT-visit we talked about what we would have in common with the people we were going to meet.

For me that is a very important ‘exercise’, because it takes me out of my head and brings me into my heart and feelings.

I like to share my experience about using the exercise ‘What do I have in common with’ in my everyday…

Why do we sit in a circle?

'Why do we sit in a circle' was one of the first questions I was pondering and writing about after starting the SALT-course. In fact, there were more questions: 'How does hierarchy impact meetings?', 'How do rank differences show up in meetings?', 'What does a non-hierarchical setting means?', 'How do you create a non-hierarchical setting?', 'What will sitting in a circle do?'. These are my answers, based on my experiences in private and business situations. 

When hierarchy is…

Maluku Competence, local support team

Hi all,

I very much like to share 'salty' information and knowledge from Maluku Competence, local support team. Most of it is not especially related to aids. Commununication throughout this aids link therefore seems not appropriate. So I invite you to follow our Facebook page 'Maluku Competence'. Happy to listen, share and learn together with you :-)

I now work almost for three years, using Salt/clcp as second nature, dis before working as a nurse and manager in a mental… Continue

What is so special about story telling?

Yesterday we did an exercise on story telling in a meeting with an informal network of former refugees that are building a future in the Netherlands. In fact, it is a loose network in the process of becoming a community, so we thought it would be a good idea to find a way where the members of this group get a chance to get to know each other better in a safe way, and also to get to know each other's strengths. 

Recognising your own strengths, helps you climb mountains and overcome…

You are not poor, it is your mindset which is poor

This is a story of older women who felt helpless and were looking for support from their own children as well as the government. Read what happened when there is a shift from this deficit-based attitude.
