The starting point for the Knowledge Asset is our collection of stories about resources. A story describes an experience and the lesson (Principle for Action) that we have learned from that experience.

This page contains our current set of stories about inclusion.

We use the set of stories to define the scope of the practise of 'Inclusion' and to define our dream ('Level 5') for the practise.

We define the scope of the practise of 'Inclusion' as follows: 

Inclusion:
We consider ourselves worthy of inclusion:
We consider others as worthy of inclusion:
We consider all to have talents:
We consider all as part of the solution.

Here is our dream ('Level 5') for the practise of Inclusion:

Everyone together addresses HIV and other issues that face the community.

Everyone has something to offer.
Everyone can participate equally.
Everyone cares equally for all members of the community.

Inclusion starts with self-acceptance.
Each of us has a responsibility to feel included.
Many of us are infected.
All of us are affected.
All of us have something to contribute.

When we include, we appreciate our own strengths and those of others and we stimulate action.
When we are included, we feel appreciated and we act.

Here is a diagram that shows our current Knowledge Asset for Inclusion

Common Principle for Action

When we begin to appreciate ourselves and to believe in our own strengths, then we start to take action.
If we make it clear that we will include and care for those who are infected, the more people will volunteer.
If we can make one simple act of acceptance, then we can inspire others to take their own actions.
If we appreciate and accept ourselves for who we are, then others can accept and appreciate us also and we will accept and appreciate others.
