About Me:
However, in the summer of 2005, I joined the Constellation community of learning and sharing of malaria competency experiences and in building and strengthening communities to scale up for impact. This experience is remarkable most especially in knowing that you are part of the process in helping people to transform and be more responsible for issues that affects their lives. The constellation community experience taught me the other way; that in addressing development needs; certain things are of essence such as:
• Appreciating and building on communities’ strengths,
• Stimulating local response for ownership and;
• Learning and sharing of experiences
These essentials will serve as catalyst for community participation and will in the long run ensure sustainability. Working with the Nova Scotia –Gambia Association, a local NGO involved in health education for behavioral change though the employment of the Peer Education Model , a very participatory community approach ; coupled with the bottom up experience of the constellation community of learning and sharing exposed me to a wide varieties of development planning ,implementation and evaluation realities. The fact that my work gave me the opportunity to involve directly with communities made me realized that many a times development experts usually tend to “think” for the communities in project proposals and thus packaged programmes sent to communities without taking into cognizance of the importance of communities perceptions and participation in the planning and implementation of programmes.This is where the constellation community experience makes a difference for its believe in the people as the agents of change and development.
My dream:
My dream is live in a malaria competent society where every individual is able to self assess themselves and innovate the necessary measures to prevent / curb it.But most importantly is living in a society where people can possess the ability to apply S.A.L.T in every aspect of their lives
I'm proud of:
Being part of the Constellation learning and sharing community.
