On 17th January and 14th February 2016, the SSIO of Italy organised educational workshops for families participating in SSE programmes, at the Mother Sai House near Milan. About 40 participants were divided into several age groups. The children engaged in various educational activities focusing on the core of Sathya Sai’s teachings on the five human values, as well as practising the principles of “Ceiling on Desires” and “Love All, Serve All.”

Through creative workshops that included storytelling, singing, and painting, the children learned that courage and generosity are more valuable qualities than physical strength. The parents participated in a workshop on good parenting and practising “Ceiling on Desires,” where they exchanged experiences on raising children and helping them acquire good character. The parents also deepened their understanding of the principles of “Ceiling on Desires” as taught by Sathya Sai Baba.
