Sri Sathya Sai Bal Vikas which means “Blossoming of Human Excellence”, was started in India in response to Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s call for parents to fulfill the spiritual needs of their children, to assume the responsibility of moulding their children’s character and expose them to the rich culture and spiritual heritage of India which recognizes the unity of mankind.

Sri Sathya Sai Bal Vikas Program has thus been founded by Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba to enable a world wide renewal of individual commitment to an active moral life. Towards this end in view, in each Balvikas class scheduled for about one hour per week, a few simple but effective teaching techniques are adopted. Namely,
Prayer
Group Singing
Silent Sitting
Story Telling
Group Activities
