Different Regions and groups of the Sathya Sai International Organisation of Australia & PNG will have groups participating in the National Tree Day event, an event carried out nationally to plant trees and other vegetation for environmental and social benefits to our country. The event this year is close to our celebrations of Guru Poornima and consequently, some tree planting activities will not be scheduled on the same date. All are welcome to join our groups in their individual projects.

Calling all workers!!! the Service Wing of the Sathya Sai International Organisation of Australia & PNG is organising a working bee to carry out regular maintenance work on the two campuses of the Sathya Sai College at Murwillumbah NSW over the weekend of 14 & 15 July.
Sai Baba says, “The body has to be carefully and tenderly fostered; It is a precious gift, a very complicated but well-coordinated machine, given for achieving a laudable task” (Sathya Sai Speaks 16.10.1974). In order to create an awareness of mind-related illness, Health Professional from ACT will be conducting a workshop on Mental Health.
Come along to Sai Sports Day 2018. An enjoyable afternoon of ports, board games, group activities and fun. The afternoon will also include a service activity for winter. All ages can participate. Bring some snacks and wear comfortable clothes.
All are welcome!!!
ACT Region’s Sai Young Adults and the Service Wing very warmly invites all to attend the Birthing Kit Assembly Day on Saturday, 26 May 2018. The activity consists of the assembling of life-saving birthing kits for use by women in remote and developing countries.
NSW East Region of the Sathya Sai International Organisation of Australia & PNG is assisting in another Bushcare project in their area on Saturday, 12 May. An invitation is extended to all those who would like to join them in this community-based environmental project.
Sathya Sai Baba continuously stressed the importance of service as a means of showing our gratitude for all that we have in this life and alleviating the distress of others. Selfless service is a powerful means of growing spiritually and expanding our limited outlook to encompass all of humanity, in fact all of creation. It fosters a flowering of love and selflessness and leads to seeing the divine in the other. Baba particularly encouraged the young to take every opportunity do service where there is a need. The Young Adults groups of the Sathya Sai International Organisation (SSIO) take this teaching very seriously and have a number of programs they are involved in. The NSW East Region group recently celebrated the start of its activities for the new year with one such activity.
The Sathya Sai International Organisation of Australia & PNG is a regular contributor to the Clean Up Australia Campaign. The objectives of the campaign sit well with the philosophies of the organisation of community selfless service and a responsibility for our environment based on gratitude for all the benefits nature and society bestows on us. This year the campaign falls on Sunday, 4 March 2018.
Every year, the SSIO celebrates Avatar Declaration Day on 20th October, the anniversary of the day Sathya Sai Baba declared His mission for spiritual uplift and transformation of humanity.
The event is observed with a global service project, “Serve the Planet.” This year, the theme selected by the Sathya Sai Young Adults, who are leading the project, is ‘Protect the Planet’. We will be focusing on caring for our environment in light of Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings on Ceiling on Desires, with respect to the reduction/elimination of plastic, conservation of water and consumption of nutritious food which supports spiritual growth. Resources for the project can be obtained through local centre Presidents.
