100 Good Deeds in Honour of Sri Swami Satchidananda   

In the spirit of service SIS will carry out or oversee 100 GOOD DEEDS such to be performed as a legacy and a tribute to Sri Swami Satchidananda's centenary (100thbirth anniversary) in 2014.


These good deeds will include eye operations to restore the sight of partially sighted or near blind children, and the provision of artificial limbs to special needs children who are victims of landmines, illness or birth defects. They will also include educational sponsorships/scholarships to deserving students who demonstrate the right qualities and abilities to make positive contributions to humanity, and ad hoc donations to deserving projects that will enhance or provide educational or healthcare facilities to needy children in developing countries.
