The SSSEHV program is one of the divine gifts to human beings by Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Violence, despair, and fear are present in the world due to the absence of human values in the behavior of human beings. In order to awaken these values in the hearts and minds of students, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba established an educational system whose methods would be applicable in the teaching to all levels of students, whether they belong to a primary school or a university. This educational system places great emphasis on the development of character along with acquisition of professional skills and knowledge. The universal nature of SSSEHV is demonstrated by its enthusiastic reception in the many countries all over the world where it has been implemented in both private and public educational institutions, youth service agencies, and community based groups. Resource materials for Education in Human Values are available in the form of books and compact discs (CD).
