Aims of the tool

To aid the process of self empowerment by examining current self desires, the progress currently made in realising those desires and how life’s factors (Intersectionality) influence that realisation.

Description of the tool

To afford the participants the opportunity to paint a picture of the aspects of life’s development that matter the most to them.

To present the participants with a (self made) graphical image of these aspects as “paths”.

To show the participants that Intersectionality (age, culture, gender, family, economic status, religion, social status, ability etc) affect their travel on the paths.

To enable the participants to graphically see that “age, culture etc” can be both an obstacle and an aid to self empowerment.
