On 23 May 2018 The Hawk Eye reported: Leslee Goldstein had a deep desire to do something fully worthy of her Ph.D. in Vedic Science from Maharishi University of Management. In a collaboration with Brenda Nakalembe, director of United Women's Platform for Empowerment and Development (UWOPED), and Ugandan teachers of TM through the African Women and Girls Association for Total Knowledge (AWAGO), a group of impoverished mothers in Kampala learned the Transcendental Meditation practice . . . in their native language, and participated in a research project to evaluate the TM training. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of world peace.
''[The women in the study] have huge resilience, huge endurance. This is the lot they were given in life and somehow, when given the opportunity to do something, TM helped them to do something for themselves, by themselves,' Dr. Goldstein said. 'We call it empowerment from within.''
