Nearly 150 delegates from Trinidad and Tobago, St. Lucia, Guyana, Barbados, Curacao, Jamaica, and Suriname ushered in the New Year 2023 with a three-day Retreat during January 13-15, 2023. The event was themed RISE: R-Reunite, I- Inspire, S- Service, E- Enlighten. Hosted by the SSSIO of Trinidad and Tobago, the retreat featured several SSSIO leaders who shared their wonderful personal experiences with Sathya Sai Baba.

Children of the Longdenville Sathya Sai Primary School delivered beautiful presentations, and well-known musicians gave exuberant performances.

Trees were also planted at the venue to mark the kick-off of the SAI 100 Tree Planting initiative.
