Motivated teachers lead to empowered students

Discovering and developing leadership potential with a futuristic perspective is the key to success. For this, KEF works with school leaders to strengthen their leadership and managerial practices. This helps enhance the learn- ing outcomes in schools. Our interactions and workshops expand their horizons through ‘I can do it’ mentoring sessions, good governance, and school leadership.

155 School leaders Learned about how to develop student leaders within their schools

School leaders from 69 partner schools gained insights about our mentoring workshop to enable Self Love and Commitment

In Rhapsody #PoemStories competition, 5357 students from 64 KEF partner schools participated. All the students added to the spirit enthusiastically. They recreated the poems into stories and debated on the topic "Digital technology is making children's lives better".

Kotak Security and Kotak Life volunteers decorated the walls of our partner schools with beautiful colors and meaningful messages. They also conducted classes on financial literacy. Godrej Group conducted STEM Learning workshop. Building a balloon-powered car from recycled material, an activity that was a great demonstration of all three of Newton's laws of motion was thoroughly enjoyed by all the students.

We took a pledge to make kindness a norm

Envisioning a tomorrow with more compassion and stronger commitment.

Our team pledged kindness and gratitude.

How we made that happen?


The National Education Policy 2020 emphasizes on developing creative, critical and problem-solving thinking in each individual with social, ethical emotional capacities and dispositions. To achieve this, Government of India has listed 8 pedagogical approaches and TPACK. To sensitize the concepts, "PedTechFair" was organized by the centralized content team for KEFians. Several teaching aids were created which were connected to multidisciplinary subjects to help teach various concepts.
