About Me:
I am an anthropologist working in Africa since 1976 in divers countries (Cap vert, Guinea Bissau, Mozambique and short in Uganda, Rwanda) on several issues concerning popular (rural and urban) communities. Working on development issues, on traditional conflict resolution with traditional authorities, on mental and social health, specifically HIV/AIDS. I am also a communication specialist of dialogue through the respect of each person culture and knowledge. I am interested to support a cultural sensitive approach of HIV, AIDS and several other health or conflict treatment issues.
My dream:
To facilitate the dialogue allowing more respect of each culture, supporting the bridging between diverging paradigms and diverging approaches, in a spirit of recognition of the positive values of each approach. A world of respect of diversity. A inclusive approach which does not stigmatize the otherness.
I'm proud of:
Professionally, between others, to have had opportunity to share the life experiences of people in divers African (and European) countries, documenting their life (realisation of several films in Cap Vert, Guinea Bissau and Mozambique) and researching and learning with peasants (in Cap Vert 1976-1981; and Guinea Bissau between 1987-1994), chiefs, traditional authorities, traditional practitioners, initiation rites counsellors/teachers, nurses, few medical doctors, anthropologist, linguist, religious leaders, community facilitators in several provinces in Mozambique (between 1997-2010).
I am certainly also proud of my wonderful daughter.

Dear Sophie,

Marie has shared in her blog how philosophy of Paulo Freire resonates with Constellation's thinking. Gaston shared that you have combined this with SALT in DRC.

Would you like to share your experience?

Thanks and regards,

Hi Sophie,

You are very well come to exchanging on that issue. Also you can share with whoever in Mozambique and wherever. It is of our interest that the ACP - I rather call Community Development Competence - is transferred to much possible people so that we get much and much connected.

Above are the links to the personal pages of Virgilio, a Constellation facilitator in Mozambique; Joao, a real champion in Handicap International Mozambique and Ricardo, South African Constellation coach.
Together with others they have been implementing the AIDS Competence Approach with great results. Read their blogs, you find them on their personal pages, and write to the directly. I am sure you will enjoy the exchange and you will learn much more on how the approach can be practically applied.

Hello Sophie,
Many thanks for opening this group. Great initiative. Are you in contact with friends HI in Mozambique and with Constellation facilitator/coach Virgilio and Ricardo??


The Constellation: who are we

The Constellation video, where we journey in less then 2 minutes from space, through nature, to villages, in homes and back while exploring what the Constellation stands for. Thank YOU for being part of it.
