GNP+ makes its free manual, Positive Development, available for grassroots organizing and training. Positive Development has been widely acclaimed as a vital resource for development and maintenance of community-based organizations supporting people living with HIV/AIDS.
The manual emerged from the collaboration and experiences of people with HIV/AIDS from all over the world. It was designed to help people living with HIV/AIDS to become involved, establish or redirect their own groups, improve their capacities, or share their abilities with others.
The manual is also useful for leading workshops and for trainers and facilitators who have been running groups for some time or who are helping others set-up their own groups.
After an evaluation in 2006, GNP+ is now developing a new programme around the concept of self empowerment, which will be inspired by the success of Positive Development.
Positive Development is available in Arabic, English, Chinese, French, Hindi, Indonesian, Khmer, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swahili, and Vietnamese. Electronic versions can be accessed through the GNP+ Library.
