Profile Information

Sanghamitra Iyengar
About Me:
I live in Bangalore, but am happiest up in North Karnataka, with communities that are still caring communities. That is where I get my charge, in the field. Of all my life experiences, being a mother has been one of the most rewatrding one. Some of my my enjoyable moments have been in the forests, birdwatching!!
My dream:
My fuel is inspiration. I draw this from people. It is a never ending process. In a world that is so wrought by violence , hatred and self interest, it is amazing how many wonderful people exist, who are sources of hope and joy to others.. My dream is that more and more of such people can join hands and be the first rains that bring up shoots on branches which have lost all energy in the summer.
I'm proud of:
Being able to stand up for my beliefsabout ocmmunity strength and hold on to them in the face of skepticism

When you believe People can, They can!

When you believe People can, They  can!

Two weeks ago, I joined some enthusiastic community volunteers from Flacq on a visit to  Etoile d’Esperance. This is an organization in Mauritius, working to help women with alcohol addiction and other related problems to take treatment and transition to a new life. It offers a residential programme for fifteen women apart from day care and after care.

The visit was special. The residents showed us around in small groups,…


Evidence of Community Strength from across the World

Posted on November 27, 2012 at 4:17pm 4 Comments

As I reflect on the last week at the Global Learning Festival at Chennai, images, thoughts and feelings crowd in.

The overwhelming feeling left with me is that it was extraordinary how people felt so full of hope, joy and solidarity. People from across continents, speaking totally different languages could bond together, and feel such a sense of harmony and connectedness. I too felt so connected with myself and with others

What was the magic? What happened in those 5 days that…


How inspiration flows..

Community Life Competence inspires and passes on the inspiration... a quote from the India Civil Society networking site  from Kshendra Kumar Mishra's posting


A dream unfulfilled...

Are sex workers not human beings or do we not consider them as human beings? We talk of gender, we have made reservations, in various services even at panchayat level (village local government) but can we understand the depth of their status? Are these not women or we have…


Connecting Local responses around the World

An amazing sentence! Connecting not creating, not building, not capacitating!!


At the Knowledge Fair organised by the India Care Emphasis team in New Delhi, someone asked." What is new about SALT? As development professionals we have been appreciative and participatory even before. We have been listening to communities." It got me thinking:  what was new ? Was it that earlier we involved communities but the agenda was…


Knowledge Fair in Delhi

Posted on May 21, 2011 at 4:00pm 3 Comments

Last week, I was in Delhi learning from an amazing effort of bringing the CLCP and SALT approach into an extremely difficult environment of cross border migration attempted by the Care Emphasis team inspired by Mohammed Rafique.. The teams were working within the constraints of a highly structured programme with largely quantitative deliverables. They were pushed, challenged by the donors and felt dejected about what they could do. Yet when the community stories began to be shared, they were…
