"I have just two thoughts to contribute to this discussion or any discussion on gender equality. I hope make some sense. I think when we expect certain social outcomes around our work on promoting gender equity, we often set ourselves up for…"

"Dear Luc and Rituu, I am totally in agreement with what you both say. I have difficulties at times in identifying how we can better include our gender perspective in a way that is not intrusive with community dream. It is not easy because it cannot…"

"Hi MariJo, What you raise is extremely critical for a successful community response. Gender is not just women. Gender is a social construct on how men or women are perceived to behave. It is also about social hierarchy and power relations which are…"

Thinking of gender

Posted on September 29, 2019 at 9:34pm 4 Comments

Hi friends, it's been a long time since I do not share with you in this platform, but these days I came to think about how we are looking as SALT practitioners at this issue, gender, that is in everybody's agenda recently. Are we really paying enough attention or, if enough, in the right perspective?

When I came in touch with The Constellation, my main work within the response to HIV was focused on gender inequality, on how women were affected by the virus to a greater extent than…


Sharing PAR field experiences book

Posted on January 3, 2017 at 7:56pm 1 Comment

Dear all,

I am in the process of translating a book which I am really enjoying and I would like to share it with you. It is about Participative Action Research, about co-creation of knowledge and how to learn from the process.

I think that it has a lot to do with our core beliefs in The Constellation and I am sure it might be of help for many of you who explore how research can be done from the actions we undertake.…

There is something interesting related with our capacity to express curiosity. In my culture, curiosity has been considered a tendency that needed to be controlled, specially among women. Still today it is considered as an intrusion into other people's lives, and a behaviour to be avoided for a good social interaction.

I haven't thought very much about it until I went to visit this small community affected by the tsunami in the region of Tamil Nadu, India. And curiosity is what…


The contentment of appreciation

Posted on March 19, 2012 at 6:25am 6 Comments

I am in Prague waiting my connection flight to Barcelona and I wanted to share with you the feeling of excitement that still bathes me. It still persists a sense of joy and contentment that usually starts with the openness that propitiates dialogue, and a stimulating sensation that starts when I prepare for listening and persists in time every time I review what actually happens there.


I know about the power of appreciation through my own experience. I have learnt much about…
