February 2018 stories (10)


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.

Lessons of Local Response: The TaWangtan Municipality of Chiang Mai

Additional Points to Ponder Following our English SALT training

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…
