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.”

The hospitals are equipped with state-of-the-art technologies in cardiology surgery, neurology and neurosurgery, neurology and cryosurgery, and ophthalmology. To date, thousands of surgeries have been performed absolutely free.
DRINKING WATER PROJECT
Drinking Water starting from the mid-nineties, 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.
Rural Outreach every year, the students and staff of Baba’s University fan out into neighboring 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.
