‘Active listening’ in the family

Background: In the Systemic participatory action research project by Institute of Development Studies for Freedom Fund and Geneva Global we are using SALT with four organisations in the states of Bihar and UP in India. We have noted that facilitators from the NGOs are observing transformation in their own personal lives through SALT. Here are stories from my team mates at PGS  from UP who have started paying more attention to listening not only to the communities but also to their family…

Learning Festival’s contribution to Community to Community transfer

In marketing we learn that when a customer is satisfied, that excitement is shared with on average 6/7 persons. That happens naturally! When a community share common experiences and learn from those experiences they too would share their learning. The sharing could happen naturally or influenced. A Learning Festival is a tool allowed for conscious sharing and learning (^_^). During the Learning Festival held in Mauritius in April 2016, 30 foreigners from 13…

Lancez-vous dans le financement participatif pour une réponse locale : à Sankuru, ensemble contre le monkeypox

Qu'est-ce qu'une réponse locale et comment puis-je aider ?

Les équipes locales relèvent les défis qui se présentent à elles et travaillent à leurs rêves à plus long terme en encourageant l'appropriation locale des problèmes et des solutions. C’est ce que nous appelons la réponse locale.

Les équipes ont parfois besoin d’une aide ponctuelle et urgente et bénéficieraient grandement de votre soutien.

Crowdfund a local response: in Sankuru, together against monkeypox

What is a local response and how can I help?

Local teams respond to their current challenges and work towards longer-term dreams by encouraging local ownership of issues and solutions. This is what we mean by a local response.

"The courage to listen", Rev. Jeffrew Brown and violence reduction

Dear all,

I'd like share about the work of Rev. Jeffrew Brown who led a reduction of youth violence in Boston (USA) by 79%.

Here you can watch his impressive, moving and inspiring 30 minutes talk on how Rev. Brown got involved. I'm sharing this video here because Brown's effective approach to community development is very similar to what I understand SALT is about:…

Should community decide what they want? why should they dream?

National Institute of Labour Economics Research and Development (NILERD) is an autonomous Institute under NITI Aayog ( erstwhile Planning commission), Government of India. NILERD organises M&E course for foreign professionals. I took a session on SALT and its application in M&E and development.

We had a lot of discussion around importance of us asking the communities what they want rather than going with our pre-determined agenda. A participant from Kenya remarked that the…

Two weeks of SALTiness :-)

I am profoundly impressed by the program. It made me think of the Salt March initiated by Gandhi which was an act of nonviolent civil disobedience in colonial India so as indian are allowed to produce salt from the seawater in the coastal village, as was the practice of the local populace until British officials repeatedly used force to stop it.

The program to me is a non violent and legitimate act to make education accessible to each and everybody. It is giving back the power to the…

ESBZ a Berlin SALT visit

SALT visit in ESBZ (see reinventing organisations)in Berlin

This is a very remarkable school for pupils from 10 to 18 years. The young learners call their teachers study coaches, they plan their own learning pace and goal. Two times a year they show their projects to the coaches, up to their 16th year they never get grades. Later they do, to be compatible with…

"Get an education" ...traditon v technology and emotions

"Autry, can you come early, like one hour before so that we can prepare? would like to put somethings on powerpoint.." Piriscilla. "Okay.." said Autry. I always keep an open mind. In fact a colleague and me had a conversation on almost similar subject only recently. How does our way of working with only paper, markers etc fit in today's hi-tech world? How do we balance our traditional way of doing things with the fast-paced world, especially with a younger generation that is 'addicted' to…
