Stories about Response (1,946)

What has helped to arrive at these conclusions?

Rituu asked in reaction to my post 'What is SALT for me?': "How have you arrived at these conclusions? what has helped?"

What helped me was: sit and look inside, feel what a SALT-situation would need, like it is an entity on its own. Does that make sense to you Rituu Nanda?

How will I remind myself trusting the SALT-process?

In her comment to my blog 'What is SALT for me?' Birgitta Schomaker asked 'How will you remind yourself of trusting the process?' It is not easy to answer that question. Probably it is: stay' with what is there, what is trying to happen. Even if I don't understand it. Keep saying to myself: Stay, stay, stay. And design some alarm bells in my head: when I catch myself on steering in a certain direction, or on wanting to speed up. When I here the 'ding' I have to say to myself 'STAY'.

‘Ownership’ of evaluation & evaluative mindset in communities – key to achieving the goal of No one left behind

We often use the term community participation in evaluation but do we reflect enough on the degree and depth of this engagement?“Use of participatory tools alone do not guarantee ‘ownership’. Evaluation can be a largely extractive process of getting data from the communitiesdid the communities have a say in what data has to be collected?” (LaiaGriñó (2015), DME for peace webinar).In “Theory of ownership” Philip Forth argues, “When I decide what to do and I do…

Ne Rien Faire

Samedi 1 décembre.

Qui est-ce que je vois à travers la fenêtre de la porte de la cuisine alors que je suis sur le point d’entrer chez mes parents ? Papa, qui fait la vaisselle ! Je suis partagé entre deux émotions : l'une, l'admiration pour mon père âgé de 95 ans qui est rentré à la maison deux jours auparavant, après deux mois d'hospitalisation pour un hématome sous-dural post-traumatique ! Et l’autre, l’anxiété et même un peu de colère, parce que papa ne suit pas la recommandation…

"You have gifts that I don't have. I have gifts that you don't have" Archbishop Tutu about Ubuntu

I ran into this video with Archbishop Tutu .

"A person is a person through other persons. I am human because I belong, I participate, I share. (...) You and I are made for interdependence. You and I are made for complementarity. You have gifts that I don't have. I have gifts that you don't have", Tutu says. 

I find Tutu's words (and the Ubuntu perspective) very…

11-13 year olds as stakeholders

Background : We started CLCP with adolescents( age group 17-19 years old) who attend computer classes in SAATHI Community centre of Institute of Social Studies Trust, Delhi, India.

Doing Nothing

Saturday, December 1.  Whom do I see through the kitchen door window, while I am about to enter my parents’ home? My 95-year-old dad, washing dishes! I was torn between two impulses: one, admiration, as my dad had come back home just two days before, after two months of hospitalization for a post-traumatic subdural hematoma! And the other, anxiety and maybe a bout of anger, as my dad’s family and medical network had told him to only walk around with a helping hand nearby. …

Documentation as a Cycle of Action and Learning

In recent years, when I came to know about the Community Life Competence Process (CLCP), I was thrilled by its deep philosophy and approach. CLCP works in the form of learning cycles where a community illustrates their common dream followed with stages of action and learning from the experience.  Learning becomes the basis for further stages/cycles of action and learning. The cycle of action and learning gradually becomes a habit of the community that might continue without any definite…

Global Learning Festival: "Stimulating and Responding to Invitations as a way towards Sustainability for Local Response"

Response and Stimulating Invitations as a way towards sustainability of local Response”

The Global Learning Festival in Bandung Indonesia brought together people from diverse cultures and experiences. This also meant that learning was perceived differently, and each person would most likely reflect different from what they saw, experienced or participated in.  As a person who has lived and experienced the SALT/CLCP process unfold, it was good to look deep on what…

Kenya Competence Trust: As You Open Your Eyes - Kasikeu Nguuni Kids Clubs

Kids and youth clubs have been very significant in stimulating responses in Kithituni Community Kenya for over ten years.  They began in the early 2000’s in response to the then high concerns for HIV/AIDS, orphans and increased number of Child Headed Households. Kids clubs were a pathway to strengthen the Psycho Social aspects in the community with the child being at the centre and most Kid clubs ( K-clubs) took different forms.  Some were community driven clubs, others through churches,…

Why one should attend GLFs? Some Reflections

It was the last of GLF 2018 in Bandung. Participants were excited during the afternoon. We all were hoping on a bus one by one to attend a cultural event at Saung Udjo, a place where we were going to play a local cultural instrument called Angklung. Laurie came to me and asked for a short video to be recorded. This was supposed to be my reflections on why should people attend events like GLF 2018. She made sure that once the group come back I will spare few…

What is driving Incompetence ? ‘We are SALTy not because you pay us’

Throughout the GLF 2018 in Bandung, this question ‘what is driving Indo Competence?’ was driving me nuts and constantly buzzing in my head. Since, in Pakistan, I am also dreaming about a team who has this sort of commitment and depth. But I did not know that the answer I am searching for was lying in my heart and I was not tapping into its capacity to respond immediately. Such a pity I thought :-D Thanks to academia, I am more living in my head then heart.…

Understanding is brain work, excepting is heart one, as human I combine both.

SALT influencing Family Planning in Indonesia - Reflection from a field staff - #GLF2018

From 1975 to 2000, the Indonesian government used military force to coerce women into using contraception. Women were forcibly taken from their homes and had an IUD put in. Women would get alerted when they knew army officers were coming to their homes, and they would run and hide elsewhere. So it wasn’t a very successful approach to population control. 



Then, the government introduced a counselling-focused family…

Engagement needs emotion (e-motion , energy in motion )

Engagement needs emotion (e-motion, energy in motion).

When do you feel most energised to act?

When looking at a problem or when looking at an opportunity?

When talking about what is going wrong or when talking about what your dream is?

When you feel listened to and connected with the group or when you feel like talking to a wall?

When you feel others are linking to your dream or when you are looked at as a blamer or as a messenger of bad news?

Do…
