Connecting local responses around the world
The Constellation uses "Building The Dream" as one tool in its Community Life Competence Process, working with communities to develop a common vision for their future. Instead of a Needs-Analysis, common in traditional development approaches, this approach employs a "Vision-Analysis", working from the strengths of the community to hope for a future better than what they're presently experiencing.
At a recent CLCP workshop in Uganda, in partnership with HealthNest Uganda and the WHO, we did some work to try and capture the steps in the process of facilitating The Dream.
