Je redécouvre SALT

A l’occasion de l’organisation de la première édition du Forum Régional de Santé à Gafsa fin Aout 2016, nous avons initié les participants à l’approche SALT.

10 associations ont participé à ce forum. Ce forum avait pour objectif la promotion de la réponse locale et l’implication des organisations de la société civile dans le changement…

Un rêve au delà de mes espérances.

A l'association Le Pont du Tamarinier, où je travaille depuis trois ans et demi, nous avons adopté l'approche SALT depuis 2015. Je fais du travail administratif et aussi j'organise des activités pour les enfants du village du Tamarinier à Rivière Noire, à Maurice.

Depuis l'année dernière, je collabore avec une des mamans du village pour préparer les vacances de fin d'année des enfants. Nous avions d'abord prévu de…

Not - knowing ...... a practice?

Appreciating the practice of   ‘not knowing’  

                         ...a personal reflection concerning today’s triad skype talk about action planning…




You have heard of flying with wings,

But can you fly without wings ?

You have heard of the knowledge that knows,

But can you practice

The knowledge that doesn’t know?


Consider a window: it is…

Appreciation, positivity and conflict

In our Blended Learning program (with Anita, Autry, Célicia and Suse) we talk about SALT and its impact. In that respect Anita, Suse and I touched upon a potential risk of denying (hidden) conflict when the appreciative style would turn into 'only talking about the positive', or what is sometimes called 'sugar coating'. 
As for myself, I find it hard to deal sometimes with animosity or tension in groups. What to do when an appreciative approach doesn't lead to…

Oh, quel miracle ? J’ai même envie de dire, SALT a force d’ordre, plutôt qu’aux forces d’ordre à Madagascar.

Merci et félicitations à Modeste et à toute l’équipe pour leur assiduité et perspicacité. Merci aussi, Célicia pour le partage de cette histoire combien merveilleuse qui confirme en fait, le pouvoir qu’incarne l’approche SALT. Celui d’être capable de susciter/déclencher la conversion (effet de curage du poids de la conscience) même au chef d’un caïd, un dur à cuire, à l’instar du tristement célèbre officier Malgache, bourreau intraitable des dahalo. Et ce, à l’espace rien que de la durée d’une… Continue

Le SALT aux forces de l’ordre

Je viens de terminer les séries d’atelier d’initiation à l’approche SALT. Des activités réalisées auprès des communautés dans les 11 régions, en collaboration avec l’Unicef Madagascar. Cela entre dans le cadre de la promotion des pratiques familiales essentielles et de la campagne de vaccination. A mon avis, l’apprentissage a été un succès. L’approche a été appréciée voire adoptée par les participants. Ils ont commencé à planifier des petites actions faisables. Mais ici, j’aimerais partager,…

Deepening our learning with the Blended Learning program

Anita (from Brussels), Suse and I (from Amsterdam) started the Blended Learning programme approx. two months ago. We're really enjoying learning about SALT and moving through the motions of the CLCP. I've done the CLC Process twice before in a group, in a 3-day facilitators course, and I'm learning a lot of new things now. Personally I find it easier to…

Applying SALT through a Song

Getting to know each other beyond our Terms of Reference and job description. 

I made use of SALT here, listening to their dreams and aspirations and concerns. The exercise seemed so simple - but at the end of the evening, we had a different perspective of each other. The activity was Stimulating, we got to Appreciate each other more, , And yes, we Listened to their concerns and aspirations. and continue with a Team we can Trust.…

Now, we listen carefully! अब ! ध्यान से सुनते है हम |

During SALT training from 28th to 30th August 2016 we had a discussion on ‘listening’ in our organization in Jan Jagriti Kendra, Chhattisgarh.  47 including 19 women and 28 men all from age group of 22 to 57 years participated in the session.

I am sharing important points from the discussion through following questions:

  • What was the situation?
  • What was the action? What brought about a change?
  • What was the change? What did we learn…

Connecting at the Core

I have heard it said that "we are one nation - a human nation." By embracing this belief as a starting point in any connection made between individuals, the resulting dissolution of divisiveness enables true possibility to emerge.

This quote was shared through the Axiom News channels. Thank you Rituu for the invitation to share…

Neil filmed the Glocon in the US. Neil on his return to the UK shared his experience with John. I happened to note their insights!…
