Primarily, OPERATION WHOLE works on the premise of conducting (by our trained national team leaders) Course One: a 2-day training seminar consisting of 16 teaching hours on all of the relevant concerns encompassing HIV/AIDS, in workshop form. Because this course is government recognized, we give Certificates of Completion to all who complete the course. These are hosted by sundry churches, businesses and other community organizations, and the attendees are comprised of church leaders, Christian laity, non-Christian business people and non-Christian adherents (open to all).
OW has written or utilizes the following AIDS resources in our seminars and for wide distribution.
REAP (Resource Education for AIDS Prevention) authored by the Tisdalles is a two-volumed, 24 Chapter, 225-page curriculum available for the lay African leader who has completed Course One seminar training. REAP includes all the major AIDS concerns in illustrated, graphic form either by flip charts, overheads or CD Rom, for teaching purposes. It caters to a picture-prompt style of teaching and learning. REAP is only available through OPERATION WHOLE as a resource tool and makes easier teaching for Africans on a subject not easily broached in any culture.
Note: An exception is made for Assemblies of God and affiliate missionaries who live outside of our seminar/s areas, and will use it for AIDS education. They may contact us to make arrangements to receive a complimentary personal copy.
