About Me:
*I ponder on the the question -who am I?
*I love SALT but practice is difficult.

My dream:
-To live without fear
Action without attachment
Unwavering in success or failure, joy or sorrow
-Have no expectations from anyone as they are cause of misery
-to be selfless in whatever I do. If I help I do not expect anything in return, if I care I have no selfish motive. Otherwise its business.

SALT and CLCP in villages where Avani is working in Kolhapur, Maharashtra is illuminating examples of  strong women and girls. The number is low but it's there.
One such example is family of Anil Patil from Village Nandwal. His daughter and niece are both being coached to enter the police services. Notably, his niece, who is married, defies societal norms by wearing…

The ripple effect of individual & collective change in a Women's group

29th Feb, the sun shining bright as John, Dhiraj, and I join the Avani Smile team for a SALT visit to  a 10-member Self-help group. This SHG set up in village Nandwal, India a year ago, includes three mothers-in-law amongst their members. About 3 months ago Jayshree and Koushalya initiated individual SALT conversations with these women.…

He taught me to unlearn...

The first time I spoke to S.M Tazammal Haque from Bangladesh Rural Economic Development (BRED) was on 6th Nov 2023. As Nawaz and I were to visit their office later in the month, I shared briefly about SALT and the baseline. There was warmth in his tone that immediately connected us. When we met at the BRED office in Dhaka, we formed an instant bond - we both confessed to not being morning people, which became an ongoing joke between us. …

My experience in this particular is brand new. Most of my experiences of community both good & challenging have been faith-based in the United States, Canada, & Puerto Rico. 

For several years I was active in the Mankind Project local community in Cleveland, OH. New Warriors is a rite of passage for men with weekly groups for support. I facilitated several of these during my time there. 

I love everything about community, especially sitting in circle. Currently, I am a co-host for monthly World Cafe online calls. Also, taken a course on The Circle Way. 

My BIG wild idea is a sustainable ecosystem where each of us is supported for life. We have someone greeting us at birth and usually helping us leave at death. Our first breath is witnessed by another human being. And, so is our last. Why not have life support for every breath in between? From cradle to grave.

Your post is inspiring! I had to grab the last part and repeat it here:

Everyone knows what isn't right...their flaws, their weaknesses, but few people know and focus on their strengths, the talents, their skills, their blessings... what is right. It's true isn't it... when our own mental patterns guide us we feel so empowered, no matter what challenges we have, no matter what mountains we need to climb, we make a plan and go about getting it done. More importantly, when we share our dream with others they feel the need to help us fulfill our dreams. We dream together and each other’s words feed our minds and stimulate thought and action.

I end with a beautiful quote by Dom Helder Camara: When we are dreaming alone it is only a dream. When we are dreaming with others, it is the beginning of reality.
