Spiritan Self Awareness Initiative
One Heart … One Soul
The name of our organisation is Spiritan Self-Awareness Initiative (SSAI). It is a non-profit organisation (NGO) registered with the Ministry of Gender Affairs and Social Development, Government of Enugu State (ENS/MGASD/SWD/315), the Ministry of Budget and National Planning Commission, Abuja (NPC/NGO-IC/S.424/1), and with the Corporate Affairs Commission, Abuja (CAC/IT/NO 43828) under the Companies and Allied Matters Act, No. 1, 1990.
The basic objectives of our organisation are:
Socio-care is our journey from ‘I’ to “we’ to ‘One’. It is the experience of our interconnectedness and finds expression through partnering with poor rural villages that are co-developed with SSAI. By addressing the practical needs of the village with input and involvement of the villagers, villagers have the opportunity to care for each other and create caring communities (Joy Villages).
Educare focuses on guiding children to the realization of their innate goodness through Human Values-Based Education. The essence of Human Values-Based Education is character transformation. Children are taught in the five domains of human excellence: Spiritual, Intellectual, Creative, Social and Environmental. We have a special preference for disadvantaged, poor village children who have no access to quality schools
Medicare brings heart into healing and is dedicated to healing the entire person, body, mind and spirit, free of cost. SSAI aims to establish free health care services for villages in the area where no medical assistance is readily available.
All Are One. We should Love All and Serve All.
In Matthew 25:35 -36, Jesus gave us the divine blueprint of our SSAI Triple Care mandate:
%22I was hungry, and you fed me.%22
%22I was thirsty and you gave me a drink.%22
“I was sick and you cared for me.”
“I was thirsty (for the water of life) and you gave me the spiritual fountain of Self Awareness.”
“I was homeless, and you welcomed me.”
“I was in prison and you visited me.”
“I was naked and you clothed me.”
