We have worked on the project “Multimedia” in Agastya International Foundation. The report, findings and suggestions were presented to Mr. Subramanya Shastry, Ms. Richa Sharma and Ms. Janani Subramanian on 22-Feb-2013. The objective of this project was to figure out ways by which Agastya can be effectively promoted, to make the Agastya website organized and user friendly, to figure out the areas of improvement in the training camp at Kuppam and to create templates and manuals which would increase the efficiency of work.

Preface:
Reality of life is many a times hidden and most of the times good work goes unnoticed. There are many unprivileged but bright children in India whose family cannot support their basic education. There is a ray of hope for them, as there are many individuals and organizations who work for the cause of the society. Continuous effort has shown how children can change things around with their innovative ideas. We always wanted to associate with such organization and do as much as possible for the good of the children. In NMIMS Bangalore we got an opportunity to work with Agastya International Foundation. We came to know how Agastya work, what difficulties it faces and how it overcomes. We had a great experience working in Agastya. It was a great learning for us.

Acknowledgement:
The accomplishment of the project ‘Multimedia’ would not have been possible without the help and co-operation we received from Agastya. We would specially like to thank Ms. Richa Sharma who has helped us with the feedback form analysis and has assisted us in knowing the minute details. Ms. Janani Subramanian who helped us in analyzing Agastya’s website by providing information where otherwise were unknown, this factor helped us in coming up with relevant suggestion and made our analysis concrete. Mr. C. K Rao who allocated activities for us, he was the POC during our entire internship period. And finally we would like to thank our mentor Mr. Subramanya Shastry who has been very co-operative and assisted us wherever we had any difficulties.

Chapter 3:
Manuals for photo cropping and zip/unzip:

Chapter 6:
Website analysis:
Problem: Agastya’s web site has all the relevant information but in an unorganized manner. Objective: Come up with an analysis of Agastya’s web site and provide recommendations and suggestions which would help in organizing the web site better and easier for viewer to surf the site with relative ease.

Chapter 7:

Chapter 8:
Feedback analysis and report:
Problem: Students had submitted their feedback of the experiences in Kuppam but the forms were not productive as it was not analyzed. Objective: To prepare a presentation on the analysis of the feedback form. Methodology: There were a total of 196 feedback forms from three different schools. We recorded the data into excel sheet and created Bar diagram and Pie charts. The analyzed data was then presented before the team.

Chapter 9:
Learning from Internship:
India has more than 70 percent of population residing in villages and children there are lagging much behind in terms of education as compared to their urban counterparts in spite of having dexterity and skills. We, as a good citizen of country as well as a responsible corporate representative, can help them in honing their skills by educating them right from the beginning so that they can play a substantial role in fast growing economy of India. Agastya International Foundation provided us the required platform to work in that direction and a glimpse of talent pool we can get in various villages of India. We used our analytical skills in segmentation of photographs, website analysis and feedback form analysis. Presentation skills and Case studies being an essential part of our curriculum have helped us a lot in preparing presentations and analyzing raw data. Group dynamics and Strategy concepts were very effective in managing the team members and Video uploading activity. Apart from these, there are many soft skills areas we had worked upon and tried to improve them. As a whole, Agastya International Foundation did provide us the platform where we were able to connect with the society in a better way and enabled us to realize our responsibilities as a corporate entity.
