THE GURU WHO INSPIRED MANY...
Saint 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.
DREAMSAI OUTREACH started on 16th March 2020 to give free essential food packs to elderly (over 65 years) who are in self-isolation in Milton Keynes.
By December 2020, the project enabled our vulnerable communities to have 50,000 meals on dinner tables . 3300 food packs were distributed
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 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. Over 70 kind people registered for blood donation so far.
Recent donation camp was on Thursday 17th September 2020 where amazing donors came forward with a force of goodness to save lives. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest to donate blood
THE GURU's DAY
Several Indians place importance on Thursday as a day of prayer and reverence to Guru.
DREAMSAI celebrates THE GURU'S DAY every Thursday from 6pm to 9pm @ MKHA community centre MK10 9QY. Due to COVID restrictions - Facebook Live Aarti is performed every Thursday at 6.30PM @dreamsaiMK
All are welcome to join.
Following Saibaba doctrine "SABKA MALIK EK" which translates to "One GOD for all", DREAMSAI gives festive hampers to those in need to enable them to celebrate their traditions.
The wonderful DREAMSAI hampers made such a difference to school children, rough sleepers, young men and women in temporary shelters.
Hampers are distributed to Christmas, Diwali, Easter , Eid and many occasions throughout the year - a great way to share the culture with diverse communities.
A food collection box is placed in the local Morrisons to collect non perishable items.
As it says on the food box; our team will wrap the donations with love and distribute to the needy regularly.
Thousands of items were donated by wonderful community members.
Great cause, great team and happy recipients. Nothing bigger than helping homeless...
YMCA Milton Keynes organised an annual Sleep Easy event where participants sleep rough whole night to raise awareness of homelessness of young people
In January 2019, we celebrated the milestone of delivering first 1000 meals to the needy people.
The event also witnessed another noble cause of donating winter essentials pack to over 50 young people, women & children
A Temple and Community centre which serves as an epitome of humanity to the MK community is the dream of DREAMSAI. Our team initiated a project in 2015 to achieve this.
The project has 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.
AAO SAI Host
DREAMSAI team organised AAO SAI event in our home, it's so beautiful and peaceful. We liked it a lot.

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.
