During the Reflection Action training that was held in Kalangala district in Uganda, we were divided in to four groups (single men, single women, married men and married women) and asked to identify the stones (things that pull us down and prevent us from achieving our goals) and balloons (things that lift us up).
This tool enabled members to
openly speak out and open up on issues that pull them down and lift them up. Later
on each group presented and were asked questions which they ably defended. This
tool is very powerful and really engages people. It creates a lot of excitement and in interaction within the groups.
