Connecting local responses around the world
My organisation's tag line says "the experience that lasts a lifetime" Even as i sit an reflect on the AC process and the process involved. It makes me realise that this will add to my experiences that will last me a lifetime.
The SALT process will be fully integrated into my work, I truly believe that it will only make things better for the communities we work in. It is a process i believe that gives back to the community, it helps the work with the strengths they have. Too long has imposition been the game played.
I depart for Lethem which is on the western side of our country on Saturday. It takes about 14 hourd by trail or an hour and a half by air. My purpose is to train some new volunteers we would have recruited in Peer Educcation. This I see as a perfect opportunity to intergate the ssalt process, I am so anxious to get out there to start working with the new volunteers (Dont worry, I'll post pics)
Road to Lethem
I believe that through lots of pratice my skills as SALT facilitator will only get better, not just practice but also by sharing with my colleagues in the team, as we move forward I am sure we'll see ways in which we can improve. It is work in progress and i am almost sure we will find new and innovative ways of applying the process.
Since being introduced to the process I have seen dramatic changes in the way I approach my work.. I see so many possibilities of intergating into my life and my work. To those who would have put it all together "KUDOS" know that you have started a revolution that will make things so much easier. I am fortunate to be a part of this revolution as a soldier rady to do battle.
I realise that sometimes we stereotype for several reasons; this process has taught me that we should first get to know people before passing judgement. I have learnt that our expectation of any group can be so far from the truth. I say this because of my experience at the Lusignan Jail where we did the process on two ocassion. My expectations turned out to be wrong. I was under the impresion that it would have been so difficult to work with the prisoners, the proved a very participative bunch.
Lets continue to strive for life competence.
