After Experience Reflection...a tool and entry point for SALT engagement works....

Since Le Pont du Tamarinier tasted SALT in April 2015, the “equal opportunity for all people” NGO has adopted SALT as a ‘Way of Thinking’ and ‘Way of Working.’ Two SALT learning events were held and in these there was inclusion of partners NGO and associates. LPDT has adopted its way of working with the three communities it is mobilizing around local response, ownership and responsibility for their own development. These engagement does not exclude youth which has established a youth club for sometime now. There were discussions about its sustainability. Francesca, a vibrant member of the LPDT team has always included SALT in her way of thinking and it was no surprise when she used AER to engage the members of the youth club in a SALTy way (^_^).

SALTy Francesca (^_^)


I remember, vividly, I was sitting in the bus heading to Quatre Bornes and there was Francesca, just after 4pm talking with youths of Carre d’As, while there two infants running to her and she engaging all, at the same time. The next day she was beaming with excitement sharing with her colleagues and me her accomplishment. Her meeting with the youth was done by applying After Experience Reflection questions, what we have learn/ what strengths we observe? and What can we do EVEN better next time or as we move forward?

In her words “We have been working with the youngsters of Carre D’as since February and it has been two months that the youngsters of Tamarinier and Boungainvillier have joined the team to work together and thus creating an opportunity to enlarge the community and also worked as one big T.E.A.M. We decided to do the AER with the team because it can help them to have positive thinking about the 6 months of the existence of the YOUTH CLUB and much more easy to evaluate the 6months works.”
