When Beneficiaries turn Benefactors

Truly E1E1 begins with a feeling!

The young alumni of the Sri Sathya Sai Vidyaniketanam Campus in Gulbarga showed us that nothing can come in the way of hearts that yearn to help. Two batches of students who recently completed high school collectively offered money saved from their pocket expenses to fund the tuition fee of current students. These students hadn’t started earning yet. But they didn’t want to wait until being able to contribute and participate in the e1e1 initiative. Truly, where there is a will, there always is a way.

Preethi Basavaraj

Batch 15 - 17

Sri Sathya Sai Prashanthi Niketanam Pre-University College, Chikkaballapur

A couple of years back, my family was in a dire situation. My father, the only bread winner of the family, lost his job. Though I was very good at academics, I knew this meant an end to my dream of studying further. But thanks to the Sri Sai Sathya Loka Seva Group of Educational Institutions, not only did I get to pursue higher school education, I did so at no cost to my family. My father too found a job as the Head Cook in the campus kitchen and life has never been better for us. I now hope to pay it forward by serving the society as a doctor.

Umakanta Biradar

A boy from the impoverished village – Gaur. His father, a lorry driver was left incapacitated due to a road accident. His mother has since been forced to take up a job to support the family. Overnight, this put at risk Umakanth’s chances of any education.
Joining the Sri Sathya Sai Educational Institution in Gulbarga (Karnataka), the institution’s integral and holistic education helped Umakanta discover the athlete in him who has since has competed successfully at the state level.
His appreciation of the education he received and the role society has played in enabling that has inspired him to look at a career that will help others like him to have a chance at such education.
