Up At schools in Uganda, students are blossoming through Consciousness-Based Education Slideshow

17 July 2013

At Maharishi Secondary School for Girls in Mbale, Uganda, students and teachers enjoy the benefits of Consciousness-Based Education, including the Transcendental Meditation programme. The school is now the first in Africa where many students have also taken an advanced training course in the Transcendental Meditation-Sidhi programme, said Henry Matovu, director of the Transcendental Meditation programme in Uganda.

Mr Matovu was describing achievements in Uganda this year to a recent international conference of Transcendental Meditation directors in Holland.

Enrolment at Maharishi Secondary School for Girls is expanding rapidly, and construction is nearly complete on the ground floor of a new three-storey classroom building. Another first for Africa—the building will be the first school on the continent designed and constructed according to the principles of Maharishi Vedic architecture.

The EDAPO school, situated just north of Uganda's capital, Kampala, provides food, shelter, education, and basic medical care to hundreds of children orphaned by the HIV/AIDS epidemic and war. The teachers, many staff, and the older children have learned Transcendental Meditation while the younger students practise a special meditation technique designed for young children. (read more)
