Shri Dipak Fakey has just received the OBE at a Buckingham Palace ceremony on 12th March 2013. He is a renowned EHV teacher from England and is visiting Mumbai from 25th March to 27th March 2013.

We have arranged a talk and an interactive session with him at Dharmakshetra on 26th March 2013 at 6pm in the evening.

It is indeed a unique opportunity to meet him. You are all invited to attend the same. A brief note on his achievement is mentioned below. You can invite all educationist known to you to attend the session on that day.

It was pleasant surprise when Shri Dipak Fakey received a letter from the Prime Minister David Cameron informing him that his name was being submitted to the Queen to receive the Honour of Order of British Empire or known in short as an OBE. He was ecstatic and jubilant and in humility expressed his gratitude to Swami for this distinction.

He was not allowed to share this joy with anyone for three weeks as he was sworn to secrecy. It is indeed a matter of Divine Grace that this will help Dipak Fakey to introduce SSSEHV in more schools. This will raise the profile of the programme.

The award is in honour of Services to Education and community cohesion in Leicester. He is a teacher and the Human Values Manager at Abbey Primary Community School which is known as Partnership Sathya Sai School. The SSEHV programme is fully integrated in the school and curriculum. The programme has had a huge impact which has resulted in the school moving from being the 55th in the league table seven years ago to being the second best school in Leicester today. The Ofstead inspector commented “Abbey is held together by the golden chain of Human Values"

Dipak Fakey has been running the Good Values Club for the past twenty years and today we have nearly one hundred and fifty children attending every Saturday.

Tim Foster in his letter to Leicester Mercury (Local Paper) quoted:
"I was delighted to see in the New Year Honours an OBE awarded to Dipak Kumar Fakey for his service to education and community cohesion in Leicester.

Hundreds of children and young people have benefited from attending his Good Values Club run at Abbey Primary on Saturday mornings. They gain a valuable insight into the positive role they can play in their local community.

Mr Fakey's award is richly deserved and a fitting tribute to the life-changing work he undertakes.”

NB: All bal vikas gurus , EHV faculty members, Vidyavahini team members, all members of the Organisation and all educationists, principles of schools known to members are welcome

Sri Sathya Sai Trust Maharashtra donates Ambulance for Animal Welfare

 


Animals were always very dear to our beloved Swami. He has time and again spoken about rendering service to animals along with service to mankind.

To further this objective, Sri Sathya Sai Trust Maharashtra today donated an ambulance to an animal welfare organisation called "Animals Matter To Me (AMTM)". AMTM is actively engaged in rescuing injured and sick animals and treating them. They also run programs for vaccination and sterilisations. The ambulance will help them further expand their operations.

 



The function today was presided over by Dr. Keiki Mistry who spoke of Swami's love for animals and his message of loving all living beings who walk the earth, including those with four legs. Mr. Nimish Pandya also spoke of this new aspect of animal seva which has now been possible with this donation.
 

 


Shri Ganesh Nayak, Founder and Trustee, AMTM accepted the keys to the ambulance with great gratitude.

Swami's Everflowing Love for all beings.

Bhagwan Sri Sathya Sai had a special place in his heart towards all animals. He has always encouraged His devotees to do Seva for animals who cannot express their pain and suffering. Stray animals, especially those who have no one to look forward to require special care and support .

"Animals Matter To Me" or "AMTM is a registered" ANIMAL WELFARE CHARITABLE TRUST, with 80G certification, that has been established to reach out to animals & birds in need. AMTM provides food & medical attention to animals, reptiles & birds across Mumbai, Navi Mumbai & Bangalore. AMTM also provides support services to independent NGOs, shelters and individuals in the form of infrastructure support & donations of food, newspaper, old clothes, medicines & other amenities. AMTM is also extensively involved in animal & bird rescues, fostering, adoption, medical aid, animal birth control programs, vaccination programs & creating awareness in the community. AMTM has a group of experienced veterinary doctors & surgeons who advise & assist in all aspects of medical care ranging from vaccination programs to performing life saving surgeries. AMTM also has an efficient network of foster homes & volunteers dedicated to ensuring the betterment of the animal, reptile & bird community local to their areas of operation. Till date AMTM has helped over 750 animals in need.

Mr. Samir Bhatia, a Trustee of Sri Sathya Sai Books & Publications Trust, Maharashtra, has been actively engaging with AMTM to provide medical assistance and support to injured animals and birds for the past few years.

As a part of the Seva activities, the organization has decided to associate with M/s. AMTM and have decided to donate an ambulance to them to help AMTM provide emergency medical aid to injured animals across the city, especially accident cases and sick animals.

A Function has been organized on Sunday 3rd March at 5pm at the “Anand Kutir Lawns” of Dharmakshetra where the Ambulance will be handed over to Mr. Samir Bhatia who will receive it on behalf of “AMTM”.

All devotees are invited along with their family and friends to attend this unique function. The organisation have requested all those who have “PETS” to bring them along for participating in this function, to experience LOVE flowing out of Swami’s immense grace and compassion for all beings including animals.
