The programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi are expanding in Togo, particularly in the fields of education and agriculture.
A large donation of arable land has made it possible to begin preliminary plans for two Invincibility Schools—one for boys and one for girls—as well as an agricultural university, said Raja Graham de Freitas, Raja of Invincible Togo for the Global Country of World Peace.*
The university will help promote knowledge of sustainable organic agriculture in the region, and the associated farm will also help support the schools.
Plans are also underway to have dairy cows and provide fresh dairy products in the local market—where they are currently unavailable, he said.
In addition, a recent Consciousness-Based Education Leaders' conference may result in expansion of Maharishi's ideal education in Togo, Raja Graham said.**
Raja Graham praised Togo's National Directors of Maharishi's programmes, who have achieved significant progress in many areas in their two years in this leadership role. They recently received the accolades of the Invincible America Assembly, the coherence-creating community of Yogic Flyers in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, he said.
The National Directors travelled to Fairfield, where their son is a first-year student at Maharishi University of Management, and met with French-speaking members of the community about current initiatives.
In the coming days, Global Good News will feature the continuation of Raja Graham's report about Togo.
* Raja Graham de Freitas's report was featured on the 3 June 2010 Maharishi Global Family Chat, broadcast daily via Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3. Podcasts of the daily Global Family Chat (audio track) are also now available for automatic download, via an RSS feed.
