Changing Lives, Serving the Nation

The Sri Sathya Sai International Organisation (SSSIO) Fiji has been dedicated to transforming the lives of its members and serving many families who live below the poverty line.

Sathya Sai School

In 1998, Sri Sathya Sai Baba blessed the plans of the SSSIO Fiji to establish a Sathya Sai Primary School in the country. The Ministry of Education approved the project to develop a kindergarten, primary, and secondary school.

In 2000, the first batch of 25 children joined the school. By 2020, there were 123 students under the care of 9 teachers and 2 auxiliary staff. The Institute of Sathya Sai Education Fiji was established in 2006 to develop SSEHV lessons and train teachers. In 2008, the Ministry of Education permitted the teaching of SSEHV in local schools.

Sathya Sai Ideal Healthcare

As the country’s healthcare system is underdeveloped, SSSIO Fiji, with the assistance of the SSSIO’s Zone 3 Medical Unit, collaborated with the Ministry of Health and two local medical schools to address key healthcare challenges, which were exacerbated by COVID-19.

The Viseisei Sai Health Centre was opened on April 2, 2011 and provides an average of 17,000 consultations annually. It also provides community outreach services to ensure care for those who cannot access the health centre. In early 2021, the VSHC was used as a maternity centre during the pandemic.

In April 2019, as in previous years, 79 volunteers from New Zealand and 15 from Fiji provided 3,014 medical consultations including dental procedures, endoscopic examinations, and minor surgical procedures over a five-day period. The Australian Medical Unit visited in August 2019 and provided 1,775 consultations in remote parts of Vanua Levu and also undertook specialised surgical procedures at the Labasa hospital.

Drawing on the medical expertise in Australia and New Zealand, telemedicine initiatives have provided specialized advice, as needed. Additionally, webinars are offered by the SSSIO in the two medical schools in Fiji.
