Celebrating Guru Poornima in Australia

The SSIO of New South Wales celebrated Guru Poornima with service. The youth conducted many projects, including a nursing home visit, food drive, tree planting, and organising a Life Skills programme for refugees and needy people. In July and August of 2015, Sathya Sai followers of all ages brought music and dancing to residents of seven nursing homes across Sydney to cheer up the residents. They packaged and distributed more than 2.8 tonnes of food to the House of Welcome and the Tregear community. The volunteers brightened the lives of refugees and disadvantaged people through creative arts, games, music, and inspirational talks.

Wildlife Rescue by Australian Youth

Over the past two years, Sathya Sai Youth in Western Australia have volunteered regularly at Native Arc, a volunteer-operated wildlife rescue sanctuary in the protected wetlands of Bibra Lake. The sanctuary rescues and rehabilitates injured Australian native animals in the region. Every three months, the youth spend a day caring for the animals, including cleaning enclosures, preparing food for the animals, and establishing new enclosures. This opportunity educates the youth on the importance of conservation and caring for Mother Nature.

Children’s Camp in Ukraine

Odessa is Ukraine’s third largest city, on the north-western shore of the Black Sea, and was the site where Sathya Sai volunteers organised a children’s camp on human values from 12th to 20th July 2015. In addition to these lessons in human values, camp activities also included study groups on work, vocal music, dances, learning games, and hiking.

Tree Planting in Australia

Tree planting is popular among Australians in July, not only because the National Tree Planting Day falls in this period, but also because of school holidays, cooler winter weather, and soil conditions. In 2015, SSIO members in the states of Western Australia, Victoria, New South Wales, and South Australia planted in all more than 24,000 native tree saplings in environmental service gestures to protect and nourish Mother Nature.
