A unique and powerful support process
that enables resilience in communities
“If I am not in the world simply to adapt to it, but rather transform it, and if it is not possible to change the world without a certain dream or vision for it, I must make use of every possibility there is not only to speak about my utopia, but also to engage in practices consistent with it.”
Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of Indignation
SALT-CLCP is about :
- Getting inspired to harness your strengths, connect to others and change your world in a way that is meaningful to you.
- A simple and powerful facilitation method, based on human potential and local resources.
- Applies in all contexts.
- Ownership and empowerment resulting in a sustainable response.
In just over 15 years, our methodology has spread across 50 different countries and is applied to as many different issues.
The secret of its spread? It’s easy to grasp and to replicate, and it helps people reconnect with a sense of purpose, with their own capacities, and with each other as they realise their potential to change the(ir) world(s).
Though HIV/AIDS was our starting point, today, we celebrate the actions of communities in response to a diverse set of life challenges. To highlight just a few: child health, maternal health, aquatic agriculture, nutrition, living together, diabetes, environment and ecology, refugees, AIDS, malaria, water, sanitation and hygiene, school life and education, palliative care, and ageing with dignity.

In June, new groups of facilitators were trained in the SALT-CLCP approach in the cities of Annaba, Béjaïa, Oran, and Tamanrasset. In total 71 persons from civil society and the medical sector came together. They applied SALT and CLCP to themselves as they built their dreams for their cities in 15 years from now, when free and equal access to health would really be achieved.
The members of the Women’s Café made one of their dreams come true. On the 20th and the 21st of May, women from Amsterdam performed with music and stories of strong women who were Heroines to them.
“The Cameroon team’s Online SALT Programme is progressing well despite challenges related to national insecurity, poor electricity, and internet. The team members remain enthusiastic and determined,” says coach Autry Haynes.
