His mission is to make human beings positive and happy. Not only around him but around the world. We will be happy if we are focused, organized, and do things that interest us. We should keep learning. He wants to share this thought through his actions. Hence, all the initiatives Kushal has taken revolve around this. He wants to touch as many hearts as possible, by creating, by helping, by being there..


Initiatives

1. Helping Teachers teach:

At the onset of COVID-19, when we all started taking online classes, he realized that not all teachers were adept with technical skills. His heart pounded over the hardships of the teachers who would need to handle very young kids and technology together. He decided to come up with on-call support for pre-primary teachers and started assisting fresh teachers with the International Institute of Teachers Training.


He helped 112+ teachers move from offline to online modes of working during this pandemic. He also conducted sessions from His learnings and imparted training to teachers on ways of using ZOOM effectively, understanding MS Office, and leveraging MS PowerPoint for animated and effective presentations for hundreds of pre-primary kids. His teachers appreciated the idea and got a lot of knowledge which was required during this pandemic.


The new normal is to work remotely, study online, shop from your couch and limit physical interactions. This will need education technology to improvise and come up with innovative solutions that will enable collaboration in class, smoothen teacher transitions, and leverage holograms and AR/VR technology. Hence, He believes that this method and beyond will be used by other schools.


Impact

· He got to train 112+ teachers. Helped them with the preparation of MS PowerPoint, Animations, and graphics to explain subjects to pre-primary students for many playgroup/ KG classes.

· He also got to sharpen His skills doing the same. Managing time for the call support system after training and making videos to further help them was a very enriching as experience.

· These 110+ videos and helpline will be available forever as a free resource.


Effort and Commitment

· He takes sessions and then calls to support. I made videos as well. This took at least 2-3 hours a day initially and then it was reduced.

· Time Management was an obstacle, but He learned how to distribute His day in a productive manner and reduced His TV time and Playtime to help teachers

· Teaching Zoom on WhatsApp to each teacher was difficult and time-consuming. Took sessions on other aspects on Zoom then. It is continued support provided.

He has plans to take free sessions on multimedia for all future teachers of this academic and any teacher who need support in the technology-related domain.





2. Free technical training to the underprivileged:

During this pandemic, He has done 100+ certifications from many academies such as IIT Mumbai, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Accenture, Griffith University, and the like. He has learned about artificial intelligence, machine learning, IoT, Data Sciences, Power electronics, Electrical vehicles, VR/AR, etc.


He realized that it can get very expensive and time-consuming to learn new technologies. Not all have the money and time to do so Hence, He created His YouTube channel- AllSpark Infinite.

His thought behind this channel is to share His learnings with students of His age group and seed the urge in them to provide free learning to underprivileged children.

Every individual has a unique spark that can be infinite. Hence the name ALL Spark Infinite.

Through his YouTube channel, he has been imparting free video training on Elocution, Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, ways to end procrastination, preparing professional word documents, discussing social causes like water pollution, growing plants on mars, and admiring His inspiration – Mr. Elon Musk.


He has learned to shoot and edit his channel videos on his own. He has also made his own advertisements. He has just put his knowledge to noble use and instilled the spark in all youngsters like me to do so.


''Impact''

· He has 250 students as subscribers who watch and learn from His60 videos that He has on His channel. Many people visit His channel on an ad hock basis and are able to share whatever He has learned.

He writes his blog once a month and spends close to 5 hrs in a month on this activity.


4. Motivating children His age during the Pandemic:

Every author shares experiences narrate stories and impart knowledge by putting in their precious time into their book. In our free time, we usually read books but not many authors write motivational books for children or try to solve our day-to-day problems. Hence, I thought of writing a book that could cover all of that and much more.


His book on 11 Secrets to Positive Development in Students has been admired by 500+ readers so far. The secrets of His achievements in many fields while being a student is summarized in this book. Through his book, He has been motivating students to bring in the desired change in the world and instilling positive thinking during these trying times.





During this pandemic, many of His friends were feeling low and I felt this case may be with every child in the world. He wanted to touch as many lives as possible in this world, we all feel like getting a motivational punch. In our free time, we usually read books but not many authors write motivational books for children or try to solve our day-to-day problems. Hence, he thought of writing a book that could cover all of that and much more.


''Impact''

It took him a little over 3 months to complete this book. I started writing in March when the whole world got hit with CORONA and some of our exams got canceled. He says he got a lot of spare time to think and think positively. His book was available on Amazon on June 29th.



5. App Development

Necessity has been the mother of all invention and Every problem has to have a solution. When he sees any problem, His brain cells get triggered and he looks for solutions that can ease the ordeal. When he first saw a disabled (mute) person, he was unable to comprehend his thoughts. That resulted in me designing an app for people who cannot speak. He used technology to “give voice to their words”.


He always gets inspired by people and nature around him. At the age of 9 and as a 4th grader, he dedicated 13 mobile applications that he had developed to his school. The school motivated him to share His learnings and app development skills with His classmates. He has made an app for teacher tracking and one for teachers training.


Impact

He has provided links to His apps to whoever is in need. They are free to share.

Effort and Commitment

· He wishes to make more such apps to help the community.



6. As part of the Social Entrepreneurship program with GOODCLAP, He has formed SPARKX Animal Welfare to rescue and feed animals in the month of September 2020.


Impact

He has rescued close to 15 animals/birds and arranged resources to feed many on a daily basis.

Effort and Commitment

He spends close to an hour feeding the animals on a daily basis. He has plans to expand this initiative to many more societies in His area in the future


7. Pandemic Health

He has spun off a “not for profit” initiative with NGOs to organize health check-up camps across India.

Have enabled registrations for health check-up camps across India and has been organizing these in association with labs and NGOs at subsidized rates.

He has enabled registration for health check-up camps across India in association with 4 NGOs and through the MyGate application at highly subsidized rates under the banner of "Pandemic Health". He has been in constant touch with Covid-impacted areas and organized virtual emotional well-being sessions through mind coach counselors in Delhi, Pune, Mumbai, and Bhopal which helped 93 people.


He also contributed monetarily to NGOs — Persistent Foundation and GD Anklesaria Dialysis Centre NGOs. The monetary contributions were made to organise oxygen camps and arrange concentrators in remote areas of Ratlam and Nagpur. In this pandemic, He has helped in organizing 19 camps in 7 states. His goal for the Pandemic Health initiative is to get health check-up camps organized across 29 states of India.

Most people in rural India don't have the same access to healthcare facilities like we have here in cities. In a small way, he tried to provide whatever little he could to fight the pandemic. His family and his school wholeheartedly supported him in this initiative.

Kushal Khemani shares his recent personal experience that spiraled the thought process.


8. 3DR NOBLE-This is another thoughtful Initiative of mine that prints customized 3D products from filaments made from plastic bottles, bags, toys, and other recycled plastic. 50% of the profits are being used to feed and rescue Animals.


SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT, USE PRODUCTS MADE FROM RECYCLED PLASTIC

– Motto of Kushal Khemani

He thinks 3D printing has the potential of revolutionizing product designs and manufacturing products for a vast range of fields while using the plastic waste generated. It is a win-win for both the manufacturer as well as the environment.


He intends to commercialize his website:https://sites.google.com/view/3drnoble/home?authuser=2



9. Website Designing- The websites for all the above initiatives have been designed by me. He has designed websites for His school projects as well. I learned to design on His own using the internet. I like making most of the technology available.
