Educators are affected by the HIV and AIDS pandemic in many different ways. At this stage, most people are focusing on how to support people that are infected by the HIV and AIDS pandemic. The youth of South Africa are in the hands of these educators that are struggling under the effects of this pandemic. The Resilient Educators (REds) programme was especially created to support educators that have been affected by the pandemic by means of the correct knowledge and skills to remain resilient. The aim of this research was to evaluate the effectiveness of the programme. To reach this aim, the programme was evaluated by means of two articles. The first article ascertains the nature and content of the REds programme. This article gives an overview of the group work process, the method of how this programme was presented, as well as a thorough explanation of the content of each session. The second article evaluates the programme as a whole by means of the results obtained from the study. Within this article, data obtained from quantitative and qualitative measuring instruments are discussed. From results obtained it was clear that this programme can be a powerful tool to support educators affected by the HIV and AIDS pandemic.
