  • Sri Sathya Sai Bal Vikas Punjab

    The Sri Sathya Sai Balvikas Program is a Movement launched by Bhagawan Sri Sathya Baba to blossom today’s children to good citizens and leaders of tomorrow. This movement was launched in the year 1969 and has grown into an international movement under the auspices of Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organizations. It trains children from the age of 5 to the age of 15. It in fact compliments school education emphasizing on the 5 cardinal human values – Truth, Right Conduct, Peace, Love and Non-Violence. Lakhs and Lakhs of Children have blossomed into youth of tomorrow through this movement over the years and there are thousands of teachers known as Bal vikas Gurus guiding these young aspiring minds by following the Divine teachings and guidelines of Bhagawan. The Balvikas does not promote any particular religion as such, but definitely promotes ‘Unity of all Religions and Faiths.  It is totally Value-oriented education.

    Sathya Sai Balvikas started in Punjab in the year 1974. As of June 2016, there are more than 200 centres, Approx. 200 Balvikas gurus and more than 3000 Students, spread across 15 districts.

    The Bal vikas movement in Punjab has gained greater momentum over last 5-6 years.  In the recent years, the main contributing factors for the growth are:

    Motivational Fests - Several Motivation Camps conducted across various districts of Punjab, inspiring the Rural and Urban young minds to be a part of the movement and take up balvikas classes.  The techniques and practical models used in these fests have greatly influenced and inspired the Gurus and the Young people. It tickled their minds to use innovative practical methods for teaching in Balvikas classes. 

    Parenting workshops –The parenting workshops were earlier conducted for the parents of Balvikas students. But since 2 years, the strategy changed to include parents from the society who were new to the Balvikas and not aware of SSS Organization activities. This has helped to embrace more children into Balvikas.

    Alumni connect – Programs to inspire the Alumni of Bal vikas to return, contribute and take up Balvikas classes

    Technology – Use of technology and tools will have emphasis in coming years to further increase the Balvikas momentum.

    Over the years, many Balvikas Gurus, Staff and Co-ordinators are contributing to Balvikas Movement in many ways, as an humble offering to Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.
