It is possible to make an impact through the technology combined with value education in the secular system of education. This is what the SSSVV program has shown and succeeded in 90 villages of India.

The sharing session on Sai Vidya Vahini by Bro Satyajit on 19th Sept was an eye opener for me regarding the fantastic Education Seva carried out by the Vidya Vahini team and how much each one of us can contribute towards this great seva.
