Frequently Asked Questions About The Sri Sathya Sai Easwaramma Women’s Welfare Trust

I am in need of money/job/healthcare for myself/a family member/a needy woman I know. Can the Sri Sathya Sai Easwaramma Women’s Welfare Trust provide this kind of individual assistance?

The Sri Sathya Sai Easwaramma Women’s Welfare Trust is structured as a welfare society rather than as a charitable foundation. We develop and sustain ongoing projects in our local area. Unfortunately, we are therefore unable to help in individual cases of need, particularly outside of our designated service area.

I am/my friend or family member is coming to Puttaparthi for a brief visit/extended stay/moving permanently. Can I/they do seva at the Sri Sathya Sai Easwaramma Women’s Welfare Trust?

Devotees already living in the Puttaparthi area who wish to do seva with Sri Sathya Sai Easwaramma Women’s Welfare Trust can come into the office and visit with the management about the seva opportunities at that time and what skills they have to offer. In general, volunteers are accepted at the Trust when there is a good match between the needs of the Trust projects and the skills of the devotee.

If we have a project related to women’s welfare, can we partner with the Sri Sathya Sai Easwaramma Women’s Welfare Trust?
