Connecting local responses around the world
Sohail is a sociologist from Pakistan. He experienced first hand how SALT bridged this "false boundary" between personal and professional life. Moreover, Sohail shares with us something very interesting. He describes how SALT emerged out of him, it was always inside. The latter has been emphasised in many stories. Indeed, every human, be a saint or a sinner, consists of SALT. :)…Continue
Moi aussi, j'étais un enfant de la rue. Après avoir découvert SALT, grâce à Eric uwintawaza, et identifié mes forces, j'ai décidé de les utiliser pour rencontrer d'autres enfants de la rue. Je leur ai parlé, je les ai écoutés et, petit à petit, j'ai commencé à me faire des amis. Il n'a été pas facile de les approcher, car ils avaient des demandes auxquelles, personnellement, je ne pouvais répondre. Mais je me suis dit: Et si je leur racontre ma vie dans la rue et comment je m'en…Continue
“Autry as I listen to your experience, I am reminded of the story of the candle and the dark room. One candle when lit, offers a glimpse of what is in the room while in darkness. However, if more than one candle at a time, is lit, the total strength of the once dark room is eventually revealed.” Tricia, a colleague with whom I shared the rewarding experience in the ‘City of Stars’ [Chiang Dao] and ‘City of City’ [Chiang mai], especially about the local…Continue
This story is after a discussion with my team mate from Ruchira Neog , Voluntary Health Association of Assam (VHAA). I have also had discussion on this with my Bongaigaon and Udalguri teams.
Often I am asked why we have not focused on 'mothers' in our immunization project in Assam. Why have we engaged the family and the whole village. With 11 months of work, I reflect on this aspect of mothers vs family approach.
We invite every segment…Continue
We cannot go back to the old days, but we can go back to the old ways. It seems we were once more able to connect with nature and with eachother. Let's go back to that!
SALT is something close, within, not something outside of you. Do you agree?

As I am rereading the summary of our initiation weekend, I realize that there were two learning items that I had not included in the initial report.
The first reflection was around the envelopes. While the core of our work consists of identifying our strengths and those of others, I believe we need to be mindful not to create an artificial and contrived exercise around the envelopes. In other words, the observations should be stimulated but not forced. Otherwise the danger is to…Continue
