Maharishi Secondary School for Girls in Mbale, Uganda, is a great source of inspiration for people in both Uganda and Kenya. In addition to many local students, 40 girls from Nandi Hills, Kenya, are attending the school, and there are plans to take in 20 new Ugandan boarders.

All the students practise Transcendental Meditation as part of their school day, and now the first course in the advanced Transcendental Meditation Sidhi programme is being offered at the school this summer.

The school is also in the process of completing a meditation hall for group practice of TM-Sidhi Yogic Flying. As demonstrated by scientific research, as the number of students practising Yogic Flying together increases, the school will become a lighthouse of coherence, harmony, and peace for Uganda and all of Africa.

In other news about Consciousness-Based girls' education in Uganda, Ms Judith Nassali, director of Transcendental Meditation programmes for women in the country, has instructed over 50 girls in the technique at the EDAPO school for orphans. A group of dedicated women meditators are the caregivers at the school and meet regularly for knowledge and group meditation. EDAPO was founded by Henry Matovu,* national director for Transcendental Meditation, and other leading meditators of this organization.

The visit of Dr Bevan Morris, President of Maharishi University of Management, to EDAPO, Maharishi Secondary School for Girls, and other institutions in the country this spring was a great inspiration to all of the organizations teaching Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's programmes in Uganda.
