Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.” —Malcolm X.

We, SSSi Online Tutoring Services, always focus on the education of the youths. We reach out to students and offer online instruction. To promote education, we go to NGOs once a month. And for this November month, we visited Saakshar Hum and put up an event on Communication. Firstly we were given a warm welcome open heartedly by the children and the members of the NGO. Furthermore, we briefly introduced ourselves and our motive for visiting the NGO. We later carried forward the event by discussing the importance of communication. We also prepared a PowerPoint Presentation on Communication skills. 

Furthermore, we arranged a few activities for the children to open up. At first, the children were a little shy, but later on, they got engaged and were happily participating. In the end, we distributed a small token of love to all the children. The humble members of the NGO showed gratitude towards us and asked us to visit again. 

About the NGO

Saakshar Hum is a Trust that seeks to access and gather the pool of educated members of society to provide opportunities to kids from underprivileged backgrounds. Their mission is to move boldly and firmly in the direction of identifying and putting into practice fresh approaches to support and advance a particular segment of society. And their vision is to provide children from all social groups with equal chances and a platform to develop and achieve. The Trust is based in Noida, Agharpur Village. 

What were we discussing about there?

Before visiting the NGO, we researched the concept of communication. We found that many kids still struggle with shyness and communication in the classroom. Here are some sneak-peek at what we discussed with the kids-

Importance of Communication

Communication is the act of two or more individuals exchanging ideas, feelings, and emotions. We are aware of the importance and necessity of communication as it is a common occurrence. In the modern world, communication is crucial in every part of life. People take online personality development classes to improve their communication skills. Communication skill is primarily essential for kids. Kids need to learn to communicate with their parents and share emotions. Moreover, students should feel free to ask questions to the teachers. 

The two types of communication:

  • Verbal - When we speak to another, we use the vocal form of communication. It could take place in person, on the phone, via Skype, or Zoom. An informal verbal engagement would be chatting with a friend over tea or in the lunch room. Other verbal exchanges are other verbal exchanges that are more formal, like going to a scheduled meeting.
  • Non-verbal - Examples of non-verbal communication include touch, eye contact, body language, and facial expressions.

We engaged the kids in conversation throughout the event. In addition, we introduced the kids to the idea of communication. They were independently asking questions while paying attention to what we were saying. We tried to persuade them that speaking their minds is healthy and that they shouldn't ever be afraid to do so.

Power of communication

Power comes in many forms, including communication, and how you utilize it counts. Communication can highlight problems, allowing them to see and providing a platform to disseminate remedies. It has the ability to energies audiences and promote unity. Without using words, actions and silence both transmit information. Every company engages in everyday communication. However, not every company makes the most of its communications to further its objectives.

It was crucial to let everyone know how much power they had. Children can establish friends and influence teachers to understand their circumstances by communicating with them. We maintained communication with each child while we were at the NGO so they could maintain contact with us.

Mode of interaction in the classroom

In a classroom, there are many different ways to interact. The primary interaction in every classroom is always between the teacher and the students. And it's not surprising that teachers and students spend most of their time at school. Here is some mode of interaction:

  1. Teacher to student 
  2. Teacher to two students
  3. Students to students
  4. Small peer group
  5. Teacher to all classroom students
  6. All the students in the classroom

Good communication between students and teachers can enhance learning opportunities and establish a positive atmosphere in the classroom. However, the connection requires work from both parties. Without question, poor communication in the classroom makes it challenging for students to fully benefit from their education. The majority of the time, teachers find it difficult to develop meaningful lessons and connections with their students. Improper language or speech issues in students could lead to poor communication. Some interactions in the classroom may come across as forced or unpleasant because of peer pressure and personality problems.

We talked about the topics above. So that everybody understands the value of interaction. To assess their degree of communication among themselves, we also planned enjoyable, interactive sessions and alphabet-missing games for them. To push them beyond their comfort zone, we also played charades. We were glad that we had the opportunity to connect with Saakshar Hum. During our visit, every member of the NGO made us feel at home. 

Discussion around the six things that happen with poor communication skills

We had a discussion time with all the members and the children. We informed them about the consequences of having poor communication skills. Here are the six things we discussed:

  • Pretty poor work output
  • A hostile workplace
  • Low spirit
  • Not paying attention
  • Use of passive-aggressive language
  • General information

What are the seven skills students will always need?

According to our research, we got seven primary skills that a student must have. Those skills will help the student with their communication. Those skills are:

  1. Curiosity & Imagination
  2. Initiation & Entrepreneurship 
  3. Agility & Adaptability
  4. Critical Thinking & Problem solving 
  5. Effective Oral & Written Communication 
  6. Collaboration Across Networks & leading by Influence
  7. Accessing & Analyzing Information 

Conclusion

The kids were highly engaged and eager during the visit. We, as a company, are generally adequately committed to the well-being of children. Therefore, we want to ensure we can enhance as many disadvantaged children's lives as possible. In addition, we support the teach India movement initiative launched by the Indian government. After our visit to Saakshar Hum, the team is already working on the requirements of the equipment needed for the next session based on the feedback form from the volunteers and students.
