Connecting local responses around the world
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).
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?

" J'étais pas sûre de vouloir être là aujourd'hui. J'étais pas convaincu de la pertinence de ce groupe et puis maintenant... j'ai envie de voir ce groupe ce créer. J'ai envie d'apprendre à vous connaître plus et avancer ensemble" - Nous dit Caroline, une femme plutôt introverti, membre du groupe pilote d'habitat groupé FitMyNest de Nivelle (Belgique).
C'est la synthèse d'une après-midi de facilitations. 6 membres du groupes pilote de cet habita…Continue
Nous sommes le mercredi 24 Octobre 2018, le 3ème jour du Festival d'échange.
Lors de la préparation de la visite SALT qui aura lieu le lendemain, nous échangeons avec Dina, qui représente une communauté de femmes écrivains, qui ont créer une école visant à stimuler les femmes à écrire. Autour de Dina, nous ne sommes que dès femmes, toutes plus curieuses les une que les autres.

A learning festival serves as a platform for the exchange of good practices. 8 mothers and 3 youth from Singapore who are in Bandung this week were surprised that their experiences and reflections were valued by participants from other parts of the world. They may not always be able to explain their efforts with a philosophical or practice framework but that did not prevent them from inspiring others.
Khidir, a youth leader was listening to a sharing about the role of a local…Continue

“In the last four years, I’ve spent a lot of time in Maluku, Indonesia, where my wife’s parents are from. I’m retired and a photographer, so I spend a lot of time clicking pictures in the community. Through this, I noticed the massive waste problem in the…Continue
October 22, Bandung. Pak Sonny takes the floor, visibly moved. In his address to about 70 participants at the Global Learning Festival (GLF), he explains why he flew all the way from Papua to West Java. “Papua has known many programs to deal with AIDS, he says. They came and went. The one that stayed with us is SALT, because it made us understand what we could do on our own”. I cried. 6 years ago, a change in leadership had dashed our hopes to support Papua…Continue

Sustainability of Local Responses and support organisations
Looking below the surface.
I had the privilege to participate at the Global Learning Festival in Bandung, from 21stto 27thOctober 2018. During that event, we carried out SALT visits in the communities around, and the local organisers had done an excellent job in identifying and mobilise 6 groups/communities/organisations…Continue
"Forum Komunikasi Peduli Anak" is community initiative in Bandung that positions itself as a welcoming resource for children-at-risk. On 31 March 2015, 15 neighbours who were concerned about prostitution among the young decided to do something. They were parents themselves and felt a sense of duty to extend themselves to other children in their midst who lacked a sense of stability and were making poor choices. They held the belief that once someone becomes aware of a problem, not doing…Continue
As a person with a teacher background, learning for me is like a big class monologue. My colleague and mentor, Sirinate Piyajitpirat, was on the same page with me when we were organizing session on SALT Experiential Lab Workshop on the GLF.
In # GLF2018 I really learned one form and face of learning. Why does learning need to be done in small groups? Why does learning need to be done in a warm atmosphere and even allow people to experience through touch, deep interaction and direct…Continue

The drive uphill to village KB Sabilulungan is long. The curvy road takes us through the hills outside Bandung. The view on the tea-plantations is stunning. So fresh, so green and clearly maintained with so much diligence. During the #GLF2018 we are exploring sustainability of local responses. The 3 hours drive gives me time to…Continue
In Lormagorhati, a remote village of Kamrup, the youth and ladies in the community have realised that the sanitary latrines being provided to every home in the village are either made of sub-standard materials or that households are being left out. Based on a Self Assessment done by the community earlier, proper sanitation was an issue that they felt they were lagging behind on, so it became a part of their action plan. They would ensure that each household would be covered using sanitary…Continue
Today, Thursday 25th October 2018, I was interviewed by Anu about the online SALT-course my triad finished last summer.
Preparing for that interview I was pondering about (among more) the question 'What is SALT for me?'. That is a powerful question that made me look inside and find answers I wasn't aware of before. I like to share some thoughts with you.
For me SALT is:
- Respect for the individual, for the community and for the world.
- The wisdom of the…Continue
