Connecting local responses around the world
We had a very inspiring visit to Ethiopia last week with IIRR and partners who have been working hard at integrating elements of ACP into their existing Community Managed Risk Reduction (CMDRR) Strategy. You will see the excellent photos and video clips that Ricardo has been uploading over the past couple of days.
It got me thinking about the word 'integration'. Seems everyone is using it these days, and as with many things we start saying it and stop thinking deeply about…Continue
Here is another great talk from TED talks warning us not to force people to converse in English. Conversation in any language leads to a sharing of thoughts and the creation of knowledge.

For me, it's a wonderful experience we are living, full of strengths in the…Continue
I would like to share an experience we had back then on the 19th of March. We visited an orphanage in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I wouldn't call it a SALT visit, because it wasn't conducted following exactly the values of SALT. (We were too dazed that day)
Since January 2011 until now, our team has visited 5 shelter homes. They weren't the same people in the team though, every visit we had different members to do the outreach program. Inexperienced, we never expected the…Continue

This camp was established nearly 20 years ago for the Tamil people who migrated from Sri Lanka due to civil war. As part of the Rural Youth Project being implemented by SIAAP, we organised a meeting with young men…Continue

Mon ONG travaille dans le domaine du VIH et aujourd’hui au Mali la stigmatisation des personnes vivant avec le VIH est un sérieux problème dans la prise en charge. Donc je lance un appel à toutes les bonnes volontés et/ou partenaires de nous appuyer afin de faire face à ce phénomène de stigmatisation qui est une violation des droits de l’homme!
Mon dimanche matin a commencé une peu différemment que d'habitude cette semaine. Debout à 7h, je me rend au bureau de la Constellation à 8h. La ville de Chiang Mai est encore toute calme et endormie. Et oui, à 9h nous commençons deux jours et demi de visites SALT dans des communautés à Chiang Mai avec 6 amis de Madagascar, 2 amis belges et 2 amis français.
A 9h, tout le monde est là.
Johnson, avec son énergie positive et son grand sourire. Il est une des premières…Continue

Accordingly, in order to better understand CLCP and TI, I present a compare and…Continue
Neema self help group Is based in Kisoko Sub-location, Busia Sub-county. The group consists of 32 women and one man. The group was formed in 2005 May, because the HIV/AIDS impact was gruelling with many people getting infected, knocking several to death, some lying in their death bed, largely of the Busia population hiding in the cocoons of fear and anxiety, and tied to their belief in ‘secrecy’ of the Menace- AIDS. Neema is a Swahili word for ‘mercy’ in English.
In the year 2005,…Continue
