    Kotak Education Foundation (KEF), is an organization working in the various

    fields like Spoken English Program (SEP),Health and Hygiene, ParentIntervention Program (PIP), Scholarship and Mentoring, School Teacher

    Enhancement Program (STEP), Principals Enhancement Program and KotakUnnati.I worked on Spoken English Program (SEP) where focus was ondeveloping Spoken English ability for vernacular medium students with Kotak

    Education Foundation under the guidance of my Faculty Guide Mrs. RoopamGosain and NGO Guide Mrs Yasmin Sha and Mrs Leena More for a periodof three month from 3

    rdOctober 2012 to 20

    thDecember 2012.

    The objective of the Spoken English Program (SEP) is to improve the

    communication skills of the students studying in vernacular schools. The SEPprogram helps to make the students comfortable with reading and

    communicating in English thereby, enhancing their personality and improvingtheir confidence. My objective was to help the students in every way possible tomake them comfortable with English by using various kinds of teaching

    methods like teaching aids, mind-maps, actions, games, skits, role-plays andvarious other activities. As per the program, I followed the TLM as prescribedto us by KEF. On Wednesdays we took their reading lessons and on Thursdays

    we took their group activity- skit, where the students enacted the entire lessonby playing various characters, making use of varied props prepared by us.

    Besides teaching the other activities that I did were preparation of skits, songsand poems for the annual program of KEF which is RAYS. I prepared the

    invitation cards and budget for the same. I also prepared patriotic songs andcharts for the coming Republic Day. There were Home Visits as well that were

    done during the course of this project where we (my partner and I) made athorough study of their background and their financial health. The project

    included DEL form i.e. Daily Evaluation form and Log Sheet which we have to

    fill and send to our NGO guides, which was done so that we could improveourselves from our mistakes and our guides could keep track on our progress.

    I thank Kotak Education Foundation and ITM Business School for providingme the opportunity to teach the students to speak in English which gave me a

    feeling of self-satisfaction and self-contentment. I am indebted to both theinstitutions for making me a better individual today and also for helping me to

    improve my managerial skills through this project

    1. Student Intervention Program (SIP)

    The Student Intervention Program (SIP) focuses on teaching students attending

    schools in low-income, disadvantage areas, Basic Interpersonal CommunicationSkills (BICS) in English. Most schools focus on the academic subjects andscores in the centralized exams. They rarely focus on the skills such as

    communication, language, inter personal and work skills. SIP is an after School

    Program that teaches and enables student to learn. Basic InterpersonalCommunication Skills (BICS) in English that will help college readiness,Employability, relationship, family and community. As we know in todaysworld learning English is really important and if those children want to come

    out of the vicious circle they need to Educate themselves first. Kotak group hastaken a real wise step to help India grow, by educating the youth. And the step

    taken by ITM, Navi Mumbai is really good, as involving aspiring managers tothis initiative will really help them to add to the skill sets to be possessed by amanager
