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.
Join the journey, learn the walk
and contribute to building a better world
Hope, connection, resilience, respect, challenges and Coiwepo*. When The Constellation Board Committee reflected on 2020, they found those words were both our strength and our challenge this past year. “We will bring all the good things that we learned from it with full energy into the new year”.
On the 8th of December 2004 the founding members of The Constellation formulated their dream: We would stimulate and connect local responses around the world. Happy birthday to us!
Stories of change are part of the mixed method evaluation of the effectiveness of the SALT-CLCP approach for enhanced community ownership of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs). Patients and health workers share how SALT impacts their lives.
