Resonate!2017: A Transformation Festival

I have recently joined the Resonance Centre for Social Evolution, created by Peter Pula and several partners.

Some thoughts at the end of the partnership with DIFÄM, Tinkisso and CHAL (Liberia & Guinea).

(Texte en français à la suite)

Why was that partnership exciting and important?

At the beginning of the partnership, there were two incentives and two challenges: and there are often overlaps between challenges and incentives.

This encouragement of introspection came to members of the 17th National Toshaos Council conference. This encouragement follows the thought “if want different results [from our action], then we cannot be doing the same things we did in the past that yielded unfavourable results.”…

AS YOU OPEN YOUR EYES-Poste Lafayette (Mauritius)

The human and learning experience

As the Visual Development team's journey in Poste Lafayette comes to a closure, as a SALTy individual I cannot but do my very own after experience reflection (AER). For sure my words will not do justice to this unique experience because certain things cannot be described but are just engraved deep within the heart.

What did I appreciate?

I loved the authenticity of my…

Go for the uncomfortable dream - What makes us Human

Anu Sieberk, a journalist from Estonia, who interviewed me writes:



"Mohamed Rafique is an Indian doctor and a senior citizens' care home owner. He encourages communities to dream: "We should not be shy of dreaming. Always go for the uncomfortable and the unachievable dream." When visiting communities, he has found that there is an unexpected gap between what you thought you should be looking for and what the members actually wanted to share.

Above the fly of faded flowers, the hope for better days…
