Integration and Inclusion program

The Integration and Inclusion program of SEC was founded in November 2019 in loving memory and appreciation for the immense work done by Late Mrs. Zarine Chothia, past Vice President of SEC school

Late Mrs. Zarine Chothia felt strongly about the ex-students and the post integration need for persons with disabilities from the low economic sector. She would often ask “What next after their education at SEC?”
