VE at Cheetah Camp, Mumbai, India

Using the portable poker-card size prototype
Philomena Rego from the Center for Creative Leadership worked with facilitators using Visual Explorer in support of grassroots leadership in India. Her reports can be found at Leadership Beyond Boundaries. Recently we have this report:
Jeevan Dhara is an NGO based in Cheetah Camp, Mumbai. This is Asia's second largest slum. Jeevan Dhara operates pre-school classes for children, adult literacy classes and study classes. It also works on HIV/AIDS issues and drug & alcohol rehabilitation.

Visual Explorer was used with the teachers of these programs. The framing question used was "How do you see your work/role in this community?"

The session was conducted in Hindi, as the teachers are mostly Muslim, and Hindi is the most understood language in Mumbai slums.

The teachers enjoyed the session which was aimed at improving their ability to work together and stay committed in spite of the difficulties. VE helped them to express themselves more freely since they were speaking about the picture they had picked. The pictures do not have any language barriers.
