Connecting local responses around the world
- Preparation to work as a SALT team is important, especially when we are new to the process.
- The AAR after the SALT visit should reflect on the SALT visit process, not so much on the actual findings from the site.
- When it comes to the end of each activity, we should go back to the ACP concepts. Always ask why we are doing this.
- It’d be better to run the community dreams activity prior to the introduction of self-assessment process.
- We have to understand the concepts first, and then we can apply all the tools.
- There are so many distinguished skills in the SALT tools. Some of them might come out instantly but some of them may take time to develop.
- We do AAR because we want to learn from our work, because we believe that we could learn from our experience. We have capacity to learn and improve ourselves. AAR could contribute to the knowledge management process.
- For the SALT visit, we should talk one at a time if it is going to be a group discussion.
- 2 SALT visits are better because people could learn from the 1st SALT visit and have another chance to try better.
- The reason that we don’t use PowerPoint in this workshop is because technology along with some other things such as wearing a uniform, sitting at the higher place than the villagers, all represent power, expressing that we are superior to the villagers. Sharing is a two-way communication when both parties feel equal, otherwise it is a teaching.
- Transferring could be from one group to another but it could also be the transferring across issues such as between poverty and HIV/AIDS or even transferring from implementation to policy
