BOKSI’m holding a gorgeous curriculum in my hands. It’s from Nation-2-Nation Film studios and it focuses on community development. It’s available in at least 10 major languages. It combines the cumulative knowledge of doctors, agriculturalists, dentists, and veterinarian experts, who have worked among the world’s poor, and pools that information into a single, practical and easy-to-use curriculum. The series, known as “BOKS” (Building Other Through Knowledge and Service) is being used by missionaries and nationals in over 35 countries. It is currently available in: English, French, Creole, Spanish, Indonesian, Hindi, Cebauno, Tagalog, Mandarin, Swahili, and Hausa and costs $175. Learn more at…

There are 4 sessions on basic hygiene and health, 8 on Basic Medical Prevention and Care, 2 on Basic Dental Care, 5 on Family Health, 7 on Basic Ag. And Farming, 4 on Pregnancy and Childbirth, 4 on Child Development, and 2 more on the Female Reproductive Cycle. So with 36 sessions, this is a virtual introductory course on the entire community development foundation. Correct me if I’m wrong, but this just might be the most comprehensive distance learning curriculum available anywhere today in community health. 21 DVD’s — all for $175. That’s basically $8/DVD. I can’t imagine any better deal ANYWHERE that would so comprehensively give you so much of a body of knowledge at a distance. Plus, the videos are high quality. Yes, many are lecture-based, rather than the participatory style that CHE has made so famous. But if you have to learn this material through a distance learning course, you probably aren’t worried about using participatory instruction techniques (because you’re solo). If you can’t get to a CHE course in person, then this course is highly recommended. And if you CAN, then take CHE to acquire the training in participatory teaching, then use this course to expand your body of knowledge about the principles, techniques and the knowledge base of community health.
