There are now 21 countries in Africa where Transcendental Meditation is being taught.

A newly certified teacher of Transcendental Meditation from Togo has completed his training course and returned home to begin teaching activities.

In the northern part of Togo a group of women who practise Transcendental Meditation are working on making natural products to support the College of Sustainable Development in that region.

Last year it was reported that some traditional leaders from Benin had learned Transcendental Meditation. One chief invited local practitioners of Transcendental Meditation to the celebration of 20 years of his rule. During the celebration he invited one of the TM teachers to present the technique and special programmes for traditional leaders to the assembled audience of 300.

The Institute for Excellence in Africa took a big step forward this year with the launch of its website, developed by Dr Chris Crowell, Minister of Religion and Culture of the Global Country of World Peace. The site shows the range of applications of programmes developed by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in education, health, cultural integrity, social harmony and world peace, together with research in each area and examples of projects in Africa. A Development Board is forming, consisting of distinguished Africans who are helping to promote the Institute's programmes.

Global Good News will report more about the programmes of the Institute, and overall initiatives and achievements of the Ministry of Religion and Culture in the past year.
