New England Shirdi Sai Parivaar's (NESSP's) mission is to promote the philosophy of Shri Shirdi Sai Baba and to accordingly support religious, spiritual, cultural, and charitable activities. In accordance with this mission statement, NESSP has been joining with Bighelp, a private nonprofit organization that works to provide education to underprivileged children in India. Bighelp secures all funds for children to make sure they are used for the intended cause of sponsoring the education of children who are at the risk of discontinuing their education due to financial issues. By striving to keep children educated and preventing children from dropping out of school due to circumstances they have no control over, Bighelp has been able to help so many children in India. Consequently, NESSP's mission resonates with that of Bighelp's. For this reason, NESSP has been sponsoring the education of two children in India from 2011. NESSP believes that in supporting these children in their journey for continued education, Sai Baba's philosophy of promotion for support of charitable and cultural activities is fulfilled
