« Un atelier sur le SALT, c’est comme le marché aux poissons » A workshop on SALT is like the fish market

Florence Muissange, facilitatrice de l’équipe de Mbuji Mayi, nous raconte : « A chaque fois que nous avons un atelier sur l’approche SALT, c’est comme un marché au poisson. Qu’on entre au marché pour acheter ou contempler, on en ressort toujours avec l’odeur du poisson sur soi.»

Nous venons de terminer la séance d’orientation à Mbuji Mayi, pour les équipes de soutien qui vont appuyer le projet « Gestion Communautaire de la Survie de l’Enfants ». Les participants repartent avec le goût du SALT, remplis d’énergie pour la mise en œuvre de ce nouveau projet.

 

Il faut dire que les facilitateurs de Mbuji Mayi sont des vraies stars de la facilitation. Il y a Thérèse, toujours souriante, qui facilite avec douceur et précision. Puis le pasteur Célestin, qui a été la force motrice lorsque le projet avec le PNMLS s’est arrêté et qui a continué à faciliter la réponse locale pendant des mois sans financement. Maman Marthe, « dame de fer » comme disent certains, a servi comme Présidente de la concertation de Mbuji Mayi pendant plusieurs années. Cléon, agronome de formation, est toujours là pour apprécier les autres et apporter l’amour dans tout ce qu’il fait. Maman Florence, qui adore les enfants, et qui facilite la réponse locale au sein de la Croix Rouge. Papa André : il est tellement dévoué qu'il va laisser ses petits enfants pour travailler comme point focal au Katanga.

 

Ces points focaux vont faire équipe avec le personnel du Bureau Centrale dans chaque zone de santé. Lors de la séance d’orientation nous avons eu la chance de faire la connaissance de Jean Michel Mutombo et Constantin Tshama qui ont beaucoup contribué à la séance d’orientation par leur partage d’expérience. « Cette approche vient nous donner une forme d’espoir. On ne sait pas pérenniser une approche si les bénéficiaires ne sont pas impliqués. Cette approche va nous aider à mettre la communauté au centre, les partenaires ne font qu’appuyer » a dit Jean-Michel, Médecin Chef de Zone de Bibanga, province du Kasaï Oriental.

Deux personnes de la Division Provinciale de la Santé ont également participé à la séance d'orientation. Fort intéressées par l'approche SALT, elles ont rejoint la concertation de Mbuji Mayi. 

 

Les facilitateurs de Mbuji Mayi qui vont partir dans les zones de santé ont veillé à assurer la continuité au sein-même de la concertation à Mbuji Mayi. D’autres membres de la concertation ont constitué un noyau de facilitateurs pour prendre la relève. La concertation se réunit tous les mois pour échanger des expériences, informations et nouvelles.

 

Aujourd’hui tous les ingrédients sont là pour que la facilitation de la réponse locale par rapport à la survie de l’enfant produise des résultats au-delà de toutes attentes.

 

Découvrez ce que les facilitateurs de Mbuji Mayi ont comme conseils à donner pour faire une bonne visite SALT :

- Cléon explique que le regard dans les yeux du facilitateur est très important

- Célestin explique que dans l’équipe il n’y a pas un « chef »

- David (de Kinshasa) explique l’importance d’être habiller simplement

Translation in English of the vidéos:

Cléon

“The way you look at people, the way you move, even the way you move your lips, your behaviour, your appearance… it's also a language. So when we arrive in a community, people read our physique, our eyes, our gestures ... Are you a loving person? Are you like this? All of this is a language. So when you arrive in a community, you must know how to greet, look at people. Eyes also say many things ... Our face, our eyes, our gestures should reflect joy. When there is joy, people will be more interested; they will participate; they will do what they can for the SALT approach and to perpetuate their strengths.” 

 

Célestin

In a community, we were in a group talking... a question arises: "You came with your team there. Who is the leader?” Teresa looks at me, I look at Teresa, and I ask: "But why do you want to know who is the chief?" It was just because they found that, between us, our way of speaking was identical. We call each other Teresa, Celestin, it’s easy. When a member of the community would call one of us chief or papa, we found it brought a sense of inferiority between us, so we erased that by calling each other by our first name. The community later understood that we wanted to bring everyone on the same foot, equal. We explained that if there is a president it is perhaps at the organizational level. When we go into a community, we become a member of this community. And as our concern is to help the community grow, to help them discover themselves, discover their strengths, and build on those strengths to support themselves... Our friends understood that between us there is no leader, there is a facilitator. They found the method divine...

 

David

When you arrive in a community of poor mothers or market gardener, and dads who will go to the fields after the event; and you are there in jacket with your telephone; and you are there taking note of everything they say; they will understand that they have officers of the judicial police in front of them. They will start either to flee or to disappear, or they will not to speak. Adapt to the environment. Be as simple as possible. Be in slippers, wearing relax. This will allow you to sit on the floor... It allows integration. It allows accessibility, and acceptance by the community.

A workshop on SALT is like the fish market

Florence Muissange, facilitator team Mbuji Mayi, tells us: "Whenever we have a workshop on the SALT approach is like a fish market. You enter the market to buy or look, we always comes with the smell of fish on itself. "

We have just completed the orientation session in Mbuji Mayi, to support teams who will support the project "Community Management of Child Survival." Participants leave with the taste of SALT, full of energy for the implementation of this new project.

It must be said that the facilitators of Mbuji Mayi are real stars of the facilitation. There Thérèse, always smiling, which facilitates with smoothness and precision. Then Pastor Celestin, who was the driving force behind the project when the PNMLS stopped and continued to facilitate local response for months without funding. Mom Martha, "Iron Lady" as some say, has served as President of the consultation of Mbuji Mayi for several years. Cleon, an agronomist by training, is always there to appreciate others and bring love into everything he does. Florence mom, who loves children, and facilitates local responses within the Red Cross. André dad: he is so dedicated that he will leave his grandchildren to work as a focal point in Katanga.

These focal points will be teaming up with the Central Office staff in each health zone. During the orientation we had the chance to meet Jean Michel Constantin Tshama Mutombo and who have contributed significantly to the orientation session by sharing their experience. "This approach is a form to give us hope. We do not know perpetuate approach if the beneficiaries are not involved. This approach will help us to put the community at the center, the partners do only support "said Jean-Michel, Chief Medical Officer Bibanga area, Kasai Oriental.
Two of the Provincial Health Division also attended the orientation session. Strong interest in the SALT approach, they have joined the dialogue of Mbuji Mayi.

Facilitators who are from Mbuji Mayi in the health zones have ensured continuity in the dialogue itself in Mbuji Mayi. Other members of the consultation have been a core facilitators to take over. Consultation meets every month to share experiences, information and news.

Today all the ingredients are there for the facilitation of local response compared to the survival of the child produce results beyond all expectations.
