Since July 2013, the SSIO in El Salvador, working in concert with the Ministry of Culture, El Salvador, has organised programmes held in several auditoriums, including teachers’ conferences, music programmes, presentations on human values, and Sathya Sai Baba Birthday celebrations. These public events have been attended by about 150 SSIO members and up to 50 visitors from the general public. To honour this partnership, on 7th March 2016, the National Council President of the SSIO of El Salvador, Dr. Wilfredo Barillas, presented two national flags, along with flag holders and 10 nameplate holders, to representatives of the Ministry of Culture, for use in their meetings.
