More than what I expected happened in a few days visit to some communities in Maputo (south of Mozambique - capital), Manica and Sofala (Central Region). A team of the ACP coachers and some of the Mozambique facilitation team plus me (of course not yet trained) paid a visit to some of Disabled people organizations implementing the ACP and some that are not.
On my first thought would have been a kind of refreshing training by the constellation coachers to the national team in an empirical supporting visit and I'd take the opportunity to learn from the discussions. Thus Ricardo and Virgilio were here to teach us on how to make things better. I was very clearly framed on this objective. I was expecting a high professional monitoring visit.
Driven the process, I found myself so involved on the process, discussing the issue with the team, facilitating processes, gaining knowledge, etc. I was doing it with such enthusiasm that at some stage I felt owning the process.
When I had break to meet with myself and have a small discussion with my intellectual I always wondered what gave me such force, energy, enthusiasm, creativity? Then I concluded: visiting, asking, listening, stimulating is all over there. I discovered the importance of just visiting as a human being that I am to my similar and not being a provider to the victims.
Today more and more I'm getting to understand what he ACP stands for. I've decided, and already started, to implement the ACP within my own organization. Not only because of the beauty of the process, but because it is a necessary step to respond to a big challenge concerning most of us - "HUMAN beings".
