Connecting local responses around the world
Today, the Regional Confidence Project (RCP) is taking a new step with the first training day for the local facilitators from Liberia. A group of 31 local facilitators selected from 8 communities, from 4 health facilities including the referral hospital, from two district offices and from the Christian Health Association of Liberia (CHAL), have come together to learn about the SALT/CLCP in order to undertake community discussions around restoration of the confidence between communities and the health system. This partnership with The German Institute for Medical Mission (DIFÄM) is being implemented on the ground with the support of CHAL. During this first day of training, the local facilitators have discussed the two first steps of the CLCP and have started to practice the SALT approach. The commitment of the local facilitators from all parts is overwhelming and they are eagerly waiting for tomorrow SALT visits to communities around. One participant said: “I am happy to be part of that team that will help our communities to improve their health”. Some have already expressed their will to use the approach on other issues and for other activities they are working on. CHAL has also indicated its strong interest to mainstream the approach within the organization in order to apply it on various other projects.
The training will last 3 days and will be followed by the same in Guinea next week. I will keep you abreast of the enthusiasm among our friends from Liberia and Guinea.
