I have been a V.C.D.M facilitator for about fifteen years.

Before joining, I was already sensitive to many social, political and economic problems, I was looking for the right way to solve them.

At the first V.C.D.M workshop I was invited to, many questions were raised: ‘ What is my identity ?’ ‘ What is the identity of others ?” Why should I be involved in social change ?’ ‘What should be my motivation ?’ ‘How can I find solutions through a democratic process ?’ We have gradually understood how these problems are connected to our lives.

It became clear that we had to solve them together, by our will. We shared our experiences freely, it was something new for us. The weight of our conditioning was lifted, a freer and clearer thought was created. Gradually our fears and limits disappeared, we were confident and aware. We have developed a way to collectively evaluate our personal work initiated in our respective work areas. We use a scientific method: observation, inquiry, analysis, coming to the conclusions through the democratic process.

Many problems have been resolved in my village and neighboring villages, starting from the education of tribal children, soil erosion, water management, drinking water, my action has been able to create new groups of animators in the village and surrounding areas.
