The United Kingdom, and indeed the whole world, has been looking for an effective way to inspire and educate children of the present generation in order to reverse the increasing trend towards violence, crime, anti-social behaviour, drug abuse and apathy. To address this need, a character based educational Programme - Sathya Sai Education in Human Values - has been devised.
Sathya Sai Education in Human Values (SSEHV or Sathya Sai EHV for short), is a multi-cultural, multi-faith self-development Programme for children and young people all over the world. It helps children to explore concepts of right and wrong through the use of story telling, role play, songs, games and drama.
It is a simple educational tool designed to help develop positive values in the young so that children and young adults become fit for life, rather than just fit for earning a ‘good’ living.
Sathya Sai EHV is part of the process of EDUCARE.
The Programme also addresses the criteria of a programme of study for educating for citizenship, which is now a statutory requirement in England and Wales.
The Programme is rapidly spreading in popularity and has been developed and culturally adapted for use in numerous countries, across all continents around the world. Schools in over 170 countries now use the Sathya Sai Education in Human Values Programme, and it has received a favourable response from UNESCO who have given the Programme recognition, and wished it success in furthering the cause for world peace through education.
