Mahayahay Sogod,Southern Leyte Philippines CLCP

The Mahayahay Sogod, Southern Leyte Sojourn with CLCP

 

….and so they came……the women….the farmers…..the fisher folks…the students..the out of school youths, the senior citizen (the elderly) and the barangay council….all with question in their eyes….and yet all of them wearing beautiful smiles on their faces!

Their local facilitator told them they are invited to dream….I hear one of them say…..”I dream only when I am asleep! When I wake up…..I realize…..it is just too impossible for the dream to happen!”

…and so we begin the process of dreaming…..each group looking to their “pakabana” (their local term for concerns)….the opportunities within their community (“kahigayunan”)….and their strengths.(“paningkamot”)…..

The dream….

                         The dreamers…….

 

…as we stimulate them…..their dreams become clearer….close to their hearts..

Their lives!  Achievable…they say….only they need help from local agencies and other

Partners….and the World Fish with their AAS Program

 

The dream became clearer!  Priorities identified…          

…..the beauty of the process lies in the realization of the community that the achievement of their community dream is in their unity….working together for the common good!

…they listen…..

 

….and just like any Filipino Community!!!! They enjoyed..We enjoyed!                                                                     

…as for me….another stopover in my learning with individuals and communities!

I learned more than I have shared…..an enriching and humbling experience as part

of the Constellation…

Gerlita, thank you for sharing the interesting journey with fishermen in Bangladesh!

You write: …as we stimulate them…..their dreams become clearer….close to their hearts.. 

This is a very important role of the facilitators team. Can you describe how you as facilitators 'Stimulated' the community to elaborate their dream?

Warm wishes, Marlou
