The Federal Senate of Brazil pays tribute to the ISSE of Brazil


On August 26, 2022, at a Special Session in the nation’s capital, the Federal Senate of Brazil, the Upper House of the National Congress, honoured the contribution of the Institute of Sathya Sai Education of Brazil for its tireless work over 22 years in developing values-based education in Brazil.

The Institute of Sathya Sai Education of Brazil offers ongoing training in SSEHV to many among students, school employees and parents, whose experience validates the worth and all-round potential of the Sathya Sai Education in Human Values programme, kindling great appreciation within the local communities, together with the awareness that “Education is not merely for earning of living, but for life”. 

The first Sathya Sai School was established in Brazil in 1993. There are now three schools in three different regions providing values-based education to underprivileged children. Food and other basic necessities are also provided to their families.

The principles of the Sathya Sai Education in Human Values programme (SSEHV), had deeply inspired a businessman, now senator, whom for many years promoted this integral and transformational approach to education, including establishing the first partnership school in Brazil, a beacon to further the implementation of the SSEHV pedagogy throughout the country.

The special ceremony at the Federal Senate was attended by the Ambassador of India in Brazil, who spoke of his own family’s closeness to the teachings of Sathya Sai Baba. The former Ecuadorian Minister of Education, a great admirer of the SSEHV programme, sent a video message especially for this important recognition.

A graceful 8-minute “moving tribute” to honour the work of the ISSE of Brazil was performed by a storyteller, Ms. Nyedja Gennari who highlighted Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings on education and His emphasis on character building, engaging the audience with the supreme truth that the true nature of humankind is divine and manifests when the inherent Human Values of Truth, Right Conduct, Peace, Love and Nonviolence are elicited from within one’s Heart, and practiced.

This remarkable achievement of the ISSE Brazil and its many dedicated volunteers, shows that when we are prompted by Love whatever we do will be fruitful, emphasising how each one of us can contribute to a better world, and concretely bring about important and uplifting changes to society.
