The Serve Our Sai Family (SOS) service initiative was introduced in April 2018 and launched during the regional Guru Poornima Celebrations in July 2018. It was readily embraced by all Sai Centres in the Perth Region.
Its objective is to serve the disadvantaged members from our Sai community who may suffer from illness, loneliness or isolation and make them feel loved and respected and realise that they are not “the forgotten generation” of our organisation.
The Seniors Day function held on the 13th October 2018, was the first event offered as part of the SOS initiative and was dedicated to Avatar Day Service. The event allowed the Senior Sai members to connect to different age groups in the Sai Organisation i.e. children, young adults and young Seniors. The purpose was to make the Seniors feel happy, wanted and very much respected.
The entertainment program included interactive multicultural presentations. The Seniors were invited to participate in all activities including playing music, singing and folklore dancing originating from the Indian State of Gujarat in India. Many Seniors happily participated and contributed towards the success of this event.
Some of the highlight performances included:
