It is from a long time that I’m thinking to « how having SALT visits in differents communities » ? Is it by invitation, asking to the communities to meet them, what saying to them to meet them in a SALT visit ?
In Belgium, it is difficult to have a lot of SALT visit, because at this time, the new facilitators don’t propose SALT visit in their environment. We don’t know exactly why, maybe because they don’t feel enough comfortable with the ACP. Then, Aicha and I are going to meet different organizations, associations to learn from their experience, meet them, explain the ACP and maybe try to have SALT visit in the futur with their team or community. But it is difficult. Also, organization are surprising to have our visit because it is not in our habits to have an organization who wants to meet you, to learn from you, to understand what you do in the field and to share their own work.
Also, people are afraid that we could be an « secte or religious team » and in Belgium sometimes, a lot of people, just work and don’t think to their dream, their feelings,… And sometimes forget that they are working in a team, with other people. We have not enough sens of « community », people are leaving « alone, individualy ».
But I believe in the way to re-find that sens of community and value of human, value of active listening, sharing, learning from each others and recognizing of strengths and capacity in everyone.
Then, In your context how have you SALT visit ? How make you to meet organization, community, people ?
I think that we need to learn from others experience all around the world to find our way of working in Belgium and our way of meeting people, community.
