The island nation that is proving to be a refuge for the Church of Scientology - 2017-08-13
A tipster sent us the photo above of staff at the Kaohsiung Ideal Org in Taiwan celebrating a "highest ever" for WDAHWO, or Well Done Auditing Hours With Out Purif. Scientology tracks a large number of statistics by the week, and Kaohsiung is actually two orgs - one for Day and the Foundation org for the nights and weekends. We asked former Johannesburg staff member Shelley Ashurst if this is a good stat or not. She tells us it's fairly typical for Ideal Orgs, but the stat breaks down to a rather small number of Scientologists active in the org. "A student doing the TRs and Objectives Course can account for 35 to 40 hours per week, so that 600 hours could equate to fewer than 20 PCs being serviced either in session, or in the course room. Every Ideal Org is built with enough auditing rooms and course rooms capable of delivering tens of thousands of hours per week. So the fact that they've reached 601 hours is embarrassing actually."
