Sri Sathya Sai Baba has established a model education system, which includes primary and secondary schools and an accredited university, offering undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degrees, with no fees from the students. It has been hailed as a crown jewel of the Indian education system by leading educators. In addition to academic excellence, Baba’s system of integral education is designed to foster character and self-discipline, for as he often asserts, “The end of education is character.”
Sri Sathya Sai Baba has established four hospitals, two of which provide advanced tertiary care. The hospitals are equipped with state-of-the-art technologies in cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery, neurology and neurosurgery, nephrology and ophthalmology. To date, thousands of surgeries have been performed absolutely free.
Starting from the mid-nineties, Sri Sathya Sai Baba has executed massive drinking water projects, bringing much-needed relief to millions of
villagers. For these long-suffering people a century-old dream has come true – safe drinking water, available free and throughout the year, right at their doorstep.
Every year, the students and staff of Baba’s University fan out into neighbouring villages and spend nearly two weeks distributing food and
clothes, house to house, bringing comfort and love.
This has inspired similar long-term projects throughout rural India and increasingly in other parts of the world.
