Currently it has 12 computers which the organization wishes to bring it up to at least 30 computer systems. ?INTERNSHIP WORK During my internship with the organization, I had thorough exposure to the functioning of the same by teaching English language to the enrolled students. This organization closely monitors its activities at Yerwada, Kothrud, laxmi Road and Shivaji Nagar. During my internship, I had an opportunity to systematically and comprehensively understand the working of the NGO.

I also had an opportunity to make visits to branches in Kothrud and Shivaji Nagar. As it is a fairly new organization, I found the management and functioning to be a tad unsystematic. During the initial days of my internship i was told to assist the English teacher, Mrs. Supriya Kamte. The spoken English course was for 4 months but I was given the opportunity to volunteer midway through the course. During the course which I had volunteered in, had grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation as its main topics. There were 33 students who had enrolled for this particular course.

During that period my task was to monitor the weak students and answer their queries. I was asked to assist the students who were not able to cope up with the rest of the class. After a week the teacher remained absent, in the meanwhile I was given the chance to be in charge of the English class. Initially I was a bit reluctant to supervise but later on I was more confident due to the generous and warm approach of the students and also their yearning for more knowledge. This spark in them enlightened my confidence. I gave extra classes to students who had problem understanding the language during the normal working hours.

Apart from serving the organization with my knowledge I wished to financially contribute as well. Henceforth, after finishing my internship I made a small contribution of Rs. 500 for the organization. ?VOTE OF THANKS I am very thankful to the management and staff of the organization for providing me an opportunity to have an insight into its working for my internship project. Last but not the least I also want to show my appreciation for Mr. Alex Augustin, who introduced me to the Chairman of the organization. * * *
