1. All technology group services are linked to Sri Sathya Sai Village Integrated Services and in coordination with the support of the concerned State Presidency. The Technology group is part of the service wing of Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organization-India. In Andhra Pradesh the Grama Seva Trust Constituted by Bhagawan has also been working together and implemented some of the projects.

The Technology group is in the service of providing simple and permanent techno solutions for enhancing the quality of life of the poor villagers. This is with the priority of providing clean and safe drinking water-health and hygiene-Toilets-Agro interventions for poor small farmers and many more….To provide solutions that are cost effective-operable-proven-manageable and sustainable with least support from outside, thus managed by the village folks themselves.
