In an area of the world where schooling opportunities for girls are too often lacking, Maharishi Secondary School for Girls in Mbale offers Consciousness-Based Education to girls from Uganda and neighbouring Kenya.

The school offers a good all-round education in traditional subjects and, in addition, each day starts and ends with girls and staff closing their eyes to practise Transcendental Meditation together. At present, 44 of the girls also practise the advanced Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying, together morning and evening.

Recently, overall enrolment at the school has increased to 80, with 20 new girls joining in February, the beginning of the academic year. Last November, 11 girls took the national exams, covering a wide range of subjects. All of them passed into the senior secondary level, and three excelled by passing in nine subjects. This was a remarkable achievement, an unexpected success for a school with an open admissions policy.

The success of the school has not gone unnoticed. For the third year in a row, the school was singled out among all others to perform songs at the International Women's Day celebration in Mbale.
