The Album is one of several featuring the 14-country tour of Africa earlier this year by Dr Bevan Morris, President of Maharishi University of Management. During the tour he visited two schools in Uganda where students and teachers are enjoying the benefits of Consciousness-Based Education, including the Transcendental Meditation programme.

The first school Dr Morris and others on the tour visited was Maharishi Secondary School for Girls, a boarding school in Mbale. Dr Morris was greatly inspired by the achievements of the school and the quality of the students.

'You feel when looking at these girls that they can do anything. . . . They're going to be great leaders, very enlightened leaders of the human race,' he said.

Dr Morris also visited the EDAPO school for orphans just north of the capital, Kampala. This school provides food, shelter, education, and basic medical care to hundreds of children orphaned by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Over half of these children are also living with HIV/AIDS.

Before learning Transcendental Meditation, many of the children were very depressed, Dr Morris commented, 'but now the spark of joy, the spark of life has come back for them'.
