In the Republic of Cape Verde, students and teachers in several schools are enjoying the benefits of Consciousness-Based Education. Cape Verde is a country spanning 10 islands in the central Atlantic Ocean, 350 miles (563 kilometres) off the coast of West Africa.

A Consciousness-Based Education programme is underway in one school, and now two other schools have begun.

Consciousness-Based Education enlivens the full creative potential and inner happiness of students and teachers by developing optimal brain functioning and reducing stress. The key technologies of the programme are Transcendental Meditation and its advanced techniques, including the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme and Yogic Flying.

Consciousness-Based Education programmes have become very popular around the world in the last several years. Students are eager to become all they can be, and teachers notice remarkable changes in their students. The three schools in Cape Verde, which have 100, 150, and 200 students respectively, together create a total number of Transcendental Meditation practitioners equivalent to one per cent of the population, enough to create the Maharishi Effect. As a result the people of Cape Verde will begin to experience an increased influence of harmony and coherence in the nation.

In 1960, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi predicted that one per cent of a population practising the Transcendental Meditation technique would produce measurable improvements in the quality of life for the whole population. This phenomenon was first noted by researchers in 1974 and reported in a paper published in 1981. The finding was that when the number of people practising Transcendental Meditation in a community reached the 1% threshold, the crime rate decreased by an average of 16%. Scientists named this phenomenon the Maharishi Effect in honour of Maharishi.
