Social Empowerment through Work Education and Action (SEWA)

Posted by on Mar 20, 2020 in School News | Comments Off

 SEWA is all about social or community service; it can include environmental concerns, civic responsibilities, democracy, health and fitness related projects, international and other projects. The project must be able to connect the child with his/ her surroundings

or a cause, and also generate a sense of responsibility for it ( it could be even be responsibility towards the health and fitness of the class itself).

The Social Empowerment component to a large extent, inspires the SEWA philosophy, which in the Indian environment refers to the concept of service to the community.

The students can undertake any activity from the topics mentioned below. They must obtain parent consent before participating in any activity.

30 hours of community service  is to be completed in class XII and this time must be used by the students under careful supervision.
