THE GURU WHO INSPIRED MANY...
Shirdi Saibaba - the great 19th century Indian Saint first made his appearance in Shirdi, India as a youth and remained there throughout his life, devoting his life in the service of people. Saibaba is known as the one worshiped by people of all faiths.
His legacy still inspires millions, and Milton Keynes based charity DREAMSAI was established to honor him with many charity projects that benefit local community. Our DREAM is to practice the teachings of SAI which includes charity , humanity & moral code of love , hence the name DREAMSAI.
Delighted to inform you that on 2nd June 2021 we received prestigious The Queen’s Awards for Voluntary Service, the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK.
This national civic honour given by Her Majesty the Queen is a benchmark for excellence and equivalent of the MBE (Member of British Empire) for volunteer groups in UK.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but the number of children facing food poverty has continued to rise in MK, mirroring what is happening nationally - and the Covid-19 pandemic is contributing to this surge.
School's Breakfast project delivers milk and cereals to various local schools every week in addition to half term food parcels to take home.
FOOD OUTREACH started as immediate reaction to pandemic to give free essential food parcels to everyone one in need and delivered over 6500 parcels which enabled our vulnerable communities to have 100,000 meals on dinner tables.
The food hampers had profound effect on our most vulnerable communities.
FOOD FOR SAI
Food poverty and homelessness has raised considerably in the last few years, despite efforts from many.
Through this project, FOOD FOR SAI, we serve cooked meals every Saturday to guests who are homeless or in temporary shelter. Around 6000 home cooked hot meals are delivered every year in Milton Keynes
Blood donors do an amazing thing when they donate. Without their kind generosity, many patients wouldn’t be alive today
DREAMSAI supports NHS Blood & Transplant by encouraging Indian community to donate blood. Next donation camp will be on Wednesday 30th June 2021 and you can came forward to save lives.
THE GURU's DAY
Several Indians place importance on Thursday as a day of prayer and reverence to Guru.
THE GURU'S DAY is celebrated every Thursday. Due to COVID restrictions currently Facebook Live is streamed every Thursday at 6.30PM @dreamsaiMK
All are welcome to join.
Following Saibaba doctrine 'Sabka Malik Ek' which translates to 'One GOD for all', festive hampers are delivered to Christmas, Diwali, Easter , Eid and many occasions throughout the year - a great way to share the culture with diverse communities.
A Temple and Community centre for local Indian community to gather and practice the cultures and traditions is long standing desire of the community. DREAMSAI Mandir will serve as an epitome of humanity to the MK community.
Our team initiated this project in 2015 and made significant progress - Stay tuned for updates.
David Sutton, outreach project
I don't know what I would have done without the help and kind donations during the period of lockdown, when I could not get deliveries from Supermarkets, nor help from my own family who live some distance away from me. Thank you so very much for all your kind deeds and donations.

Wonderful people, giving up there for time to keep pensioners and the desperate people fed and made feel loved
I can't speak highly enough of Dream Sai. They help so many people & were invaluable to so many during 'lockdown'. As I've been to India, & already felt a connection to Sai Baba, I was so pleased to find that Dream Sai are working from my home town, so many miles from Shirdi.
SHIRDI SAI - OUR INSPIRATION
All our projects are inspired by the teaching of SHIRDI SAIBABA, the 19th century Indian Saint, whose followers include people from all the faiths. Shirdi Saibaba lived in Shirdi, India and left his physical body in October 1918. Shirdi Sai samadhi centenary was celebrated across the world by his followers in 2018.
SAIBABA was extremely successful in building strong bonds between different faiths and beliefs. For HIM, there is no difference between poverty and prosperity. SAIBABA put into practice the principles of democracy, socialism and secularism which form the basis for many societies today. The common meals which SAIBABA cooked and served with his own hands to poor people is an inspiration for FOOD FOR SAI project.
