The River-of-Life tools (ROL) is a learner centered approach for behavior change programming using appreciative inquiry principles for behavior change facilitation, communication and peer learning. It is composed of four tools, the Tree of Dreams, the Self-Assessment of Risk, the River of Life and the "I" Journal. Enrolled at risk community groups facilitates it quarterly to generate individual and group outputs that used to stimulate behavior change among group members. Outputs are showcased every year during an annual knowledge fair in line with the World AIDS Campaign and results are used to inform policies and programs tailored to the identified risks and vulnerabilities of youth. It was developed by the pioneers of KGPP in Iloilo in 2005 under the name "Self-measurment of ChangeTools with the assitance of the Asian Development Bank through the Constellation for Life Competence (formerly AIDS Competence) based in Thailand during the organization’s implementation of the Skills for Life project funded by UNICEF Country Program for Children 6 (2005-2009). The Philippine NGO Support Program (PHANSuP) selected the initiative as one of the Community Engagement Learning Case and was adopted as a tool for measuring behavior change for the Positive Living program scaledup to 11 CBOs implemented in Manila, Iloilo, Cebu, Zamboanga and Davao. The toolkit was selected as one of the Official Global Village Activity for the XIX International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2012) held in Washington DC at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. from July 22 – 27, 2012. http://aidscompetence.ning.com/profiles/blogs/the-river-of-life-rol-tool-is-an-official-global-village-activity
