WorldWide Communities Adoption

As an offering of love and gratitude to Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba on His 95th Birthday, the SSSIO is happy to offer the adoption of around 160 communities in 40 countries, at His divine lotus feet. The program, titled Global Adoption of 95 Communities, was initiated in November 2017 and has exceeded all expectations. SSSIO members are making a difference in the lives of needy people by providing education, healthcare, food, shelter, drinking water, and other services in a sustainable manner. The goal of this project is transformation of the heart – for both SSSIO volunteers and the recipients of the service, as taught by our Lord, Sri Sathya Sai Baba.

The project continues, and we aim to serve more communities with renewed zeal. Jai Sai Ram!
