Findhorn Foundation UNITAR & CIFAL 

cifal_map_aug2016CIFAL WIKI

The CIFAL Global Network is part of the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR website | wiki). The Network comprises 15 International Training Centres (CIFALs) and aims to serve as a platform for capacity-building of government authorities and civil society leaders on topics related to sustainable development, as well as on global mandates and goals of the United Nations. Since its inception in 2003, the Network has trained more than 60,000 beneficiaries through over 600 training and knowledge-sharing events (as of December 2015). It reached more than 10,000 beneficiaries from 75 countries in 2015.

The acronym CIFAL stands for “International Training Centre for Authorities and Leaders” (French: ‘Centre international de formation des autorités et leaders’ or in Spanish: ‘Centro Internacional de Formación para Autoridades y Lideres’).[1] Each CIFAL Centre is a hub for capacity building and knowledge sharing between local and regional authorities, national governments, international organisations, the private sector, and civil society. It is an important resource in the United Nations long-term efforts towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The central purpose of CIFAL’s training programmes is to develop and strengthen human capacities to better respond to development challenges. CIFAL Centres rely on a facilitative approach that aims to:

  • Facilitate the transfer of knowledge, experiences and best practices amongst government officials, private sector and civil society leaders
  • Enhance capabilities to effectively perform relevant tasks
  • Encourage cooperation and the development of multi-stakeholder partnerships
  • Provide networking opportunities leading to city-to-city collaboration
  • Contribute to the development of local and national strategies

Each of its learning and training activities present a variety of learning resources blending core content, assignments, tasks, assessments, peer-to-peer collaboration, interactive activities, and mentoring. Depending on the needs of the beneficiaries and the objectives of the training, activities are delivered in different formats: face-to-face, virtually, or blended, combining both.

Ekuinas yet to finalise plans for ILMU 18 March 2016

PETALING JAYA: Ekuiti Nasional Bhd (Ekuinas website | wiki), which announced three acquisitions worth RM363.2 million yesterday, has yet to finalise its plans for its education arm Ilmu Education Group Sdn Bhd (ILMU).

“Any plans to divest ILMU will only be finalised once Ekuinas believes that the value of the investment has been optimised,” Ekuinas said in an email response to SunBiz. “Similar to global private equity firms and as mentioned last year, Ekuinas is open to divestment through listing or strategic sale exercise at the appropriate market environment and continues to work towards achieving this crystallisation exercise.”

Back in April 2014, the firm’s former CEO Datuk Abdul Rahman Ahmad said it would list ILMU in 2015. Later in March last year, the firm said the listing would likely be at end-2015 or early 2016.

However, in September last year, Ekuinas said that its listing plans would take another six to 12 months (March-September 2016) to materialise, due to less favourable market conditions.

The government-linked private equity fund management company said that any divestment plan that it undertakes must maximise value and meet its financial as well as social objectives.

On whether it would acquire more assets to be injected into ILMU, Ekuinas said its focus is on strengthening ILMU’s operations and profitability across all its tertiary institutions and schools.

“The group aims to continue growing its range of offerings, including exploring future expansion opportunities into pre-school and vocational education,” it said.

In a statement issued yesterday, Ekuinas said that ILMU, which is acquiring the remaining 49% stake in APIIT Education Group, has also acquired the remaining stakes in Unitar International University (Unitar) and Tenby Schools.

The firm acquired the remaining 10% stake in Unitar Capital Sdn Bhd, the owner and operator of Unitar, at RM13 million from minority shareholder Shoraka Square Ltd. The acquisition was made in December 2015.

In February this year, it acquired the remaining 30% stake in Tenby Schools website | wiki for RM35.2 million from its founder and director Datuk Lim Si Boon, who will remain as executive director of the company.

On Wednesday, Sapura Resources Bhd announced the proposed disposal of its entire 49% stake in APIIT Education Group to ILMU for RM247 million. After the disposals, APIIT will declare dividends to its shareholders whereby ILMU and Sapura will be entitled to dividends of RM70.78 million and RM68 million respectively.READ IN FULL

Ok, so this “Ecstatic Living” institute, pushes for sex-ed in very young children, and they hold workshops ^in above mentioned resorts^. These resorts are also into new-age stuff, tantric sex, etc., which in and of itself is nothing to think anything of (I used to be kind of new-agey, but after looking into all this stuff I feel like I am questioning every belief I have ever had). But….what other kind of stuff goes on at these places?
