Connecting local responses around the world
Vidya is an ordinary mother with two kids. She joined HealthRise as SALT facilitator very recently in 2019. Initially, Vidya was hesitant to work in the project. She was afraid to go alone for SALT visits in the village amongst the community. She was fearful while interacting with patients, community members or front line health workers like ASHA, ANM, AWW. She used to think what and how will I talk when I am with the community? What if, I am unable to answer the questions asked by other field workers?
Vidya underwent training on 1st and 2nd step of SALT CLCP. Also, she used to visit the field for organizing SALT meetings with individual patients and the community. Gradually she became confident and now is one of the best SALT facilitator of HealthRise phase II project. She is a quick, responsive and fast learner. She has started to use SALT approach in her day to day life 'S- Stimulate, A- Appreciate, L- Listen, T- Transfer'.
