Six mois après le début de la mise en œuvre de la stratégie simplifié du projet "Appui aux initiatives communautaires en République Démocratique du Congo, les résultats s'annoncent satisfaisant. Cependant l'équipe "Prestataire de Services National" constituée de La Constellation et de RDC Compétence ne dort pas sur ses lauriers.
En effet, les communautés s’approprient de plus en plus de l'approche SALT et cela se matérialise par les différentes activités facilitées dans les 15 villes du… Continue

My organisation's tag line says "the experience that lasts a lifetime" Even as i sit an reflect on the AC process and the process involved. It makes me realise that this will add to my experiences that will last me a lifetime.

Le 11 octobre, par une matinée fraîche et ensoleillée, Gaston, Laurence et moi avons poussé la porte du Cercle des voyageurs. Tout le monde (ou presque) était déjà présent et l'odeur du thé à la menthe embaumait l'atmosphère. J'ai été accueillie chaleureusement par chacun d'entre eux et j'ai pu enfin mettre une image sur ces noms que je connaissait déjà. Un peu impressionnée dans mon coin par ces "grands" esprits, j'attendais en silence, un peu curieuse, ce qui allait se… Continue

For some time I had heard about the personal risk assessment exercise being facilitated with different groups in Guyana as part of the AIDS Competence Process (ACP), and I was curious to learn what it was like, how it was
facilitated, and how it fit in with the process. Fortunately I had an opportunity to observe it in action during my second visit to Guyana in late September.
It was during a SALT visit to the fire brigade near the lively Stabroek Market that I had the… Continue

Freire wanted education to be 'liberating'. He was opposed to passive transmission of information and condoned oppression. For him, education is 'the practice of freedom'.
The excerpt below of the book Pratiques émancipatrices. Actualités de Paolo Freire is a reflexion on the meaning of the word 'freedom'.

Networks explicitly inspired by Paolo Freire are concerned with the meaning of words, as similar words may be used very differently and have diverse meanings. The Constellation shares that concern.
For instance, when Marijo
and her team constructed our website in Spanish, she did not translate the English website, but rethought our whole content in their own language.
To facilitate our collective learning on the… Continue
