Connecting local responses around the world
I find myself reflecting on the experiences I have shared over the years since being exposed to the SALT approach. Sometimes I wonder what would have happened had I not been exposed to the approach. I remember Usa and Gaston who introduced us to the approach, they were fantastic. The workshop was different, not the regular workshop that I was accustomed to, there was something exciting in the air. I was made to reflect on who I was as a human. It was a weird question "why are you human?" over the years I have come to reflect on this question time and time again as it helped me to shape the decisions I make in life. Today, I must admit that eventhough I have not been actively promoting the approach it has become a part of who I am as a person. The approach is one that promotes the participation and inclusion of all in the decision making process. This has had an important impact on my way of working as my way of thinking is one which seeks to identify strengths rather than weaknesses.
