Teachers are reservoirs from which, through the process of education, students draw the elixir of life.
-Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba
Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba launched the SSSVV program on 23rd November, 2010 to meet the growing need for holistic education for all. This project harnesses technology to replicate on a national scale, the success of the model of integral education followed at the Sai schools and university in and around Prasanthi Nilayam, which combine values-based education with academic excellence. It aims to create a generation of well-qualified young men and women, with a burning desire to serve the motherland, a strong sense of responsible citizenship, integrity, and empathy for their brethren, apart from a spiritual outlook. The guiding principle of SSSVV is to make human values infused secular information available free to teachers and their pupils. Leveraging technology for remote access, the program calls upon the altruistic attitude of enthusiastic volunteers with education, training and technology backgrounds to achieve the dream of Integral Education for All, Integral Education by All
