ADB-NGO Competence, CLCP Refresher Training - Cambodia

This workshop was organized for 4 full days, including evening sessions for 2 days to be counted as 5 day since the original agenda was adjusted to suit the traveling time. The workshop was organized during 16 – 20 August 2010 in Mondulkiri province, Cambodia. It was attended by 11 participants and 5 facilitators. They are from different respective organizations.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will share and learn around different ways of thinking and working, in particular an understanding of Human Capacity for Response (HCR) concepts and the AIDS Competence Process,
  2. Discussed and tried out new methods and tools including SALT visits, AAR, AIDS Competence self-assessment, Self-measurement of progress, facilitator’s personal assessment,
  3. Developing Facilitation team, providing mutual support and learning for each other,


- 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

Dear Vichet,

I am very pleased to see this posting. Ar kun! We often do events and forget to note the key learnings. I like what you have done. Please can you share the other organisations who participated in this event. I met Mak Chamroeun who is very keen to join in SALT visits and other events. Hope you will invite him in the next event.

Wish you a productive trip to the provinces.

Warm regards,

Hello Vichet, please say hi to the people I met in previous workshops in Cambodia.

These are very useful learning points. If you get chance can you reflect on and share how the facilitation team mobilises resources for SALT visits and meeting because I remember how creative they can be. We are building a knowledge asset on mobilising resources and we can include your experience to share with others.

The Cambodia AIDS Competence Team plan to translate the ACP resource into the KHmer version.
