Sathya Sai Education in Human Values (SSEHV or Sathya Sai EHV for short), is a multi-cultural, multi-faith self-development Programme for children and young people all over the world. It helps children to explore concepts of right and wrong through the use of story telling, role play, songs, games and drama.

It is a simple educational tool designed to help develop positive values in the young so that children and young adults become fit for life, rather than just fit for earning a ‘good’ living.

The Sathya Sai EHV Programme is spreading in popularity and has been developed and culturally adapted for use in numerous countries, across all continents around the world. It is being used in schools in many different countries around the world (see our videos page for examples) and has received a favourable response from UNESCO, who have given the Programme recognition, and wished it success in furthering the cause for world peace through education.

What is the particular need being met?

Life at the beginning of the 21st Century presents many difficulties for teachers, parents and young people. For the young in particular, with so many external influences, demands and constraints, it can be very easy to lose hold of the values that make up a civilised society.

The Sathya Sai EHV Programme is designed to help young people to be in touch with their own feelings and nurture awareness of the qualities within themselves which form good character and behavior.

This is done through what is called a “Triple Partnership for Education” between teachers, parents and children, meaning that all three groups play key roles in reversing current negative trends, and in reaching towards the goal of truly successful value based education

In today’s multi-cultural and multi-racial society, with its changing social norms and expectations, it can be difficult for a young person to know what is right

The values are specific because they are in line with a human being’s make up. They are also heavily interrelated (e.g. right conduct is action with love, and according to conscience) and give rise to many related values under each main heading. The Values are taught through five teaching components:

The Teaching Components:   • Theme for the Week
• Silent Sitting
• Story Telling
• Group Singing

“If human values take root in the educational system, the emerging individuals will have the following attributes: they will want peace & justice in a world that acknowledges the rule of law and in which no nation or individual need live in fear; freedom and self reliance to be available to all; the dignity & work of every person to be recognised & safeguarded; all people to be given an opportunity to achieve their best in life; and they will seek equality before the law and the equality of opportunity for all.” – Sathya Sai

“Education is Not for Living, But for Life ; End of Education is Character ; Education must be given free to all as the only through true education, man gets peace and only through Peace in Individual , World Peace will be attained.” – these are the words of our Master and getting inspiration from this, the EHV wing of Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation Palakkad conduct educational activities which are totally free.
