SEG has designed a computer certification program for students of class 4th and 5th at the Academy Primary School, Manipal. The sole objective is to bridge the gap between the haves and have nots by tapping the potential of these enthusiastic kids. The idea is to get them acquainted with the basics of computers since it is the most important and indispensable skill required in today’s time. The topics covered range right from the very basic introduction of input and output devices to fundamental applications of MS-Office.

These skills are imparted through various fun activities and games. This project is done at CSI Boys boarding school, Udupi, for the students…
Mar 2018 - Present
We at SEG believe that there are many reasons why donating clothing to others is a significant action. When you give people access to clothes, you give them more than just protection from the cold. You give them ability to socialize, express themselves, and feel dignified. With the help of the TAPMI fraternity and in collaboration with Asare Trust (training and rehabilitation centre for the specially-abled), Christ Church and Gandhi Hospital we carried out this event.
Others include: Plastic Waste Management (Jul 2016 – Present) & Solid Waste Management (Jul 2016 – Present)
