We partner with institutions that share our vision for education as a tool for collective empowerment as well as individual transformation, and, therefore, offer education at no cost to the students.
Presently, the Foundation supports partner schools and colleges established by the Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva Gurukulam Institutions, by taking care of the students’ cost of education. All our partner schools are located in the rural hinterlands and offer high quality, holistic, values-based education to rural children, with absolutely no cost to them.

The goal is to take this model of education to every district in India, with the near-term target being to cover all 30 districts in Karnataka. Our current educational footprint is shown in the graphic.

A rural child who joins the school is provided with a unique opportunity to pursue her studies until she completes her Bachelors, Post-graduate or even a Doctoral degree, all provided free of cost!
