SEWA @ MRIS Mohali

At Manav Rachna International School, Mohali we have an elaborate line up of programs that incorporate the ethics and principles laid down for Social Empowerment through Work Education and Action (SEWA).

The concept is based on the idea of “Learning to live together” as enlisted among the pillars of learning in the Delors Report detailing the instruments and structures for learning in the 21st century. The following projects focus on developing social consciousness of the learners through simple meaningful work at the individual level and actions at a cohort level. In a globalized world, it is important that each learner needs to realize that no person is an island and must live as a confident, competent and contributive citizen of a vibrant society.

The main aim of SEWA is to deploy and capitalise on existing state-of-the-art methodologies, models and algorithms for machine analysis of facial, vocal and verbal behavior.

The following initiatives have been undertaken:

  • Sustainable development Projects
