Connecting local responses around the world
I share with you my thesis (attached) which documents and reflects upon the journey of mainstreaming CLCP and SALT at UNFPA in Indonesia. I hope you enjoy reading it.
There are some very special people who I wish to acknowledge (in no order):
Indocompetence - you are shining stars! From the moment I met each of you I was a changed person - because you are SALT. Thank you for showing me a new way...
UNFPA - such a warm welcome in such a bright office. Thank you for the opportunity to learn from you all. Thank you for your insightful reflections and openness to new ways of working.
The Transgender community in Jakarta - you showed me the importance of love, and how it makes communities strong! Lulu, you are a role model to so many people, and I am proud to be your friend.
Chandra, my partner in crime! I miss the way you were able to see strengths in ANY situation!
Dewi, such an inspirational facilitator and tireless worker, I learned so much from you and your positive attitude to everything.
Wiwin, I still smile when I think of our journey to Tasikmalaya! You are truly salty.
Rebeka - thank you for so kindly sharing your interest and expertise on CLCP and UNFPA, and introducing me to this world.
Ade - for giving me a stern talking to and making me work harder on my thesis. Your standards are high!
Jean-Louis, Gaston, Lau, Marlou, Rituu and all of the CST - thank you for your support along this journey of CLCP at UNFPA. I had never worked with people like this before. It was refreshing and inspiring. Your passion and dedication is rivalled only by your immense skill, experience, ability and SALTiness! What a team!
Pak Zahid - for taking a chance and bringing new possibilities to UNFPA and the communities with which it works.
Communities throughout Indonesia - the world can learn from you. A country with so many people, cultures, languages and religions, all living together in relative harmony. It is unique and special, and I took many lessons from the Indonesian way of life.
