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.
National Tree Day was started in 1996 and since then 23 million trees have been planted. Groups from the Sathya Sai International Organisation of Australia & PNG have been active supporter of the activity for several years with members of the organisation joining the thousands of Australians contributing to this excellent environmental drive. This year, several regions of the SSIO are organising tree plantings within the parameters of the national event.

Liquid Love is the annual blood donation drive organised by the young adults of the Sathya Sai International Organisation of Australia. The Liquid Love campaign aims to inspire people to express their inherent love for all by making blood, plasma and platelet donations a regular part of their everyday lives. The recent drive commenced 23 November 2016 and was originally set to finish 24 April 2017. Because the target had been exceeded, it was decided to extend the drive until 7 May 2017 with the hope of extra donations and introducing more people to this wonderful life-giving service.
A workshop titled ‘Healthy Ageing’ was held on 2 April 2017 between 9.30 am and 12 noon at the Senior Citizen’s Centre in Turner in Canberra, ACT.

It is proposed to conduct similar workshops in other locations in the future.

An environmental awareness project is under way in the NSW East Region of the Sathya Sai International Organisation of Australia & PNG. The project is aimed at reminding us that much of our superseded possessions and materials can have another life and thus reduce wastage, land-fill and possibly provide someone else with something they can profitably use. Recycling reduces the demand on our precious earth resources in many ways and the environment they are harvested from. This is part of the SSIO’s ongoing commitment to ‘Serve the Planet.’
