India Competence is a network of organisations with a strong belief in community strengths and committed to the spread of AIDS Competence Process.The network is characterised by a non-hierarchical structure with a yearly rotating host organization starting with SIAAP and aims to (i) go to scale with the approach, (ii) adapt it to help communities respond to their key issues, (iii) coordinate the facilitation of local responses nationally, and (iv) influence national policy in support of local responses.

Bobby Zachariah, Maharashtra
There is great interest in a NGO in Pune to stimulate a community response to suicide. We are now ready to move out - we are looking for invitations to get into the neighborhood - of schools, colleges, housing societies, slums - anyone who wants to respond to this issue. There are about 5-10 volunteers who are now keeping their eyes open to invitations.

PNF is taking steps on Recognition and acknowledgement and self vulnerability in Self Assessment Framework in villages. PNF conducted training of 20 ACP volunteers from 12 villages in May 2010.

Zoengpari and Rituu B Nanda, Northeast India
A North East facilitation team was formed in May 2010. The team has a great bunch of people, fun loving and passionate about ACP. Some new people joined the team and it had a meeting on 3rd June. Now the team has 21 members from about 15 organisations. As some of the team members are new to ACP, they plan to hold an ACP orientation event soon.

After my visit to Indonesia the last 10 days, I was so impressed with IndoCompetence. Now I can add IndiaCompetence to that list as well. Perhaps a peer assist between the teams on a challenge that one team faces could be interesting? Rituu, what do you think is a challenge for IndiaCompetence that IndoCompetence might provide experience on? Or the other way around.

Wow. So much happening in India! I look forward to seeing the logo, and thanks for the link to Sanghamitra's blog. For someone like me, who has not yet had as many experiences with CLCP, and thus has a limited number of my own stories to share, I need to hijack other peoples'!!! ;-)

Best of luck to all in India.
