A must : "Provision" approach to an " Enabling" approach to get a Community action....!!!

First do we behave as Facilitator???

Do not assume, however, that we can get prepared "once and for all." We facilitators are continually learning more and more ....... It is a never ending process, and we will be doomed to failure if we ever think we know it all and it has a big impact on how the Community gonna act.

When we start talking about community problems, and asking what their priority problems are, there will be a tendency to assume that we are there to…

Sharing with you lessons from PinoyCompetence

We would have wanted to fly to India and be part of the fun in the Global Learning Event, but fund constraints will not stop us from sharing with you our experience.  Here are some lessons from PinoyC (this is our group's nickname).  This is a compressed version of our journey so if you are interested to know more, give us a shout. The development of this presentation, is a journey and a wonderful realization in itself.  Through the years, it felt like the group was going thinner and thinner…

A behind-the-scenes look at generative journalism from Axiom

Sometime back Rituu and I connected, and are now in ongoing conversations about a variety of things. I'm with Axiom News, which is very interested in strengths-based community thriving, so that's one of our connect points. A group of us, including Rituu, are also now looking at the possibilities around co-creating a life-giving news network for and with renewed and thriving youth worldwide, which is very exciting. But the reason I'm posting today is Rituu invited me awhile back to post a…

Getting better reception?

One of the things we are trying to do @USPG @weareUs_tweets is to demonstrate that community health will only really become effective if those of us who are health professionals learn from the development fraternity. Effective engagement with ordinary people who have tended to be treated as targets for health education is vital. I am somewhat sceptical about 'tools' of development which foster participation, but when they really do elicit genuine responses by ordinary people that suggest real… Continue

How do you tell a compelling story about people in need that doesn’t simplify or stereotype?

I use my How Matters YouTube channel to highlight portrayals of international assistance that inspire more nuanced conversations about the politics of global development and international aid. Frankly though, there’s not enough content to keep that page very active. Very few video-based products show people grappling with the realities of programming on the ground and the stories of grassroots change-makers too often remain…

AID Effectiveness

Without sounding ungrateful one wonders if aid agencies or development partners are as effective in helping Third World countries in their course towards sustainable development. In Swaziland it began as an emergency response where food aid is concerned, but it later became an annual event.

This has…
