It has been a long while since I did any activity with the Pinoy Competence, much more with anybody from the Constellation. That email inviting a facilitator from Asia came in as a surprise as well as invigorating as drops of rain in a parched field on a summer day!
One email, two preparatory meetings, and now we are into the second day of the third team in this 3 Day…Continue
I was so happy and proud to be assigned to facilitate virtual SALT Training for our dear Beyond Social Service Singapore. The training was conducted for 9 days and split into 3 days per week starting from 17 May until 2 June 2021. For me, it means a lot particularly the side effect of furnishing my English. I have no doubt to work with any SALT facilitators all around the world since we can easily be connected since we believe in humanity and SALT. But what? I've got a lot of learning,…Continue
Marlou and I were overwhelmed with joy and enthusiasm when we knew that there were more than 20 friends from three continents joining the first Virtual SALT Visit in the Go Girl project. We visited Babes, an NGO in Singapore working to take care of pregnant youths. We opened the session by sharing through a chat box who we are and the age of our mom when she delivered us. As Marlou said, this is an appreciation of our mothers. I found that participant mothers were 19 - 38 years old…Continue
Thanks to Marie who encourages me patiently to share my learning on the application of SALT and CLCP by a local NGO named BILIC or Bandung Independent Living Center. Initially, I was facilitated by Rituu to discuss with Joao Arnaldo Vembane, a SALT facilitator and a former officer at Handicap International in Mozambique on the preparation of the training. Really appreciate and Thanks to Rituu and my dear friend Joao ( a father with a newly born baby girl)
The SALT- CLCP…Continue

This morning we sat together and shared what happens to us as individuals and the local support team after IndoCompetnec's "come-back debut". Last year, with no prior experience attending previous GLF, Bandung's local team encourage our-selves to organize it. We are thanking Dewi Rahmadania and all Global Support Team who were lending brains and hands to assist us. Lessons learned and achievements were celebrated and we keep this beautiful memory and experience deep inside us. Today we…Continue

Hello dearest friends!
These are stories of my individual's experiences and other local facilitators' ones when we worked with 13 groups on the Family Planning/Keluarga Berencana - KB Villages program (Kampong KB). The program is the Indonesian Presidents' initiative to boost poverty alleviation by inviting all relevant development actors to support the Kampoong KB movement. Currently, the initiative has been run for three years and we found almost 2100 Kampong KB has been…Continue
This is a reflection of the valuable learning from my participation as a member of the CLCP facilitator’s team conducted by the Singapore National Volunteerism and Philanthropy Center. This training was the second session. The first session was held in November 2018. Interesting learning is a flow of the facilitation process.
As always, the…Continue

“The government’s community health services wasn’t having a lot of luck reaching out to youth on adolescent sexual and reproductive health. They started to recognize the value of local response when they saw that youth had much more influence on other youth…Continue
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…
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
Things happen when ready to happen. I quote this from Jean Louis's email some days ago. Yes, I feel the true of that inspiring sentence.

Its been assumption that participants of training were conducted by City Aids Commission did not attend its until the training were fully…Continue
Its been 8 years ago when two facilitators of IndoCompetence were invited by National Family Planning (FP) Board to present FP Competence. The discussion was postponed since the senior officer we talked with was retired. Two three times after that, IndoCompetence (Dewi, me and Tuti) were invited to present our approach to program person or pool of trainers of the institution.
This year, February, one of FP Officer in West Java who were invited to attend SALT and CLCP workshop on…Continue
Suddenly I was filled with happiness and with warm feeling. Jean Louis visited us, Indocompetence members, in Bandung last two week ago. We reconnected one and another. There was Dewi, Eki and me myself. Prior to the visit, Dewi and JL have had salt visit to Maluku Competence that has shared me with so much energy of Om Eli who has been safe guarding the ‘ budaya’ to keep environment treated sustainably to meet local people need. What I have learned from JL’s story of our colleague in Maluku…Continue
