IMMANUEL BUSINESS SCHOOL

ORIENTATION PROGRAM

 

January 18, 2021. Immanuel Business School had a virtual orientation program for the freshers at 10:30 AM. Dr. Santoshi Paawar of JNTU, Hyderabad was the chief guest. In her 20-minute speech, she lavishly admired the innovative approach of IBS in preparing students for the future and emphasized the importance of management education.  

Among others who spoke on the occasion were the Founder Chairman, Dr. Joab Lohara and Mr. Tanuj Gaurav, Director of Operations.  

Dr. Joab Lohara encouraged the students to be men and women of character, brilliant, brave, honest, courteous, artistic and polymath genius. "Education without human value is less than useless and education without character would have a deleterious impact on society," he remarked. 

IBS has been successful in placements and will continue to explore new areas. It would continue to prepare students for what comes next, see them go places, producing entreprenuers and employable professional.  

The ice on the cake was the testimony of two of our alumni, Rajkishore and Mario, who have landed lucrative jobs in multinational farms and achieved great success in their career. 

The program was led well by the principal, Dr. Grace Ganta.

SHRI. B. SHANKER LUKE

 

The State Minorities Commission has invited AIM ASIA to work in partnership for

the COVID-19 RELIEF WORK. We have launched helpline services at three centers:

Nacharam, Rangareddy distict; Bogaram, Medchal district; and Solipet, Yadadri

district. Travel passes are given to three of our vehicles by the

Commissioner of Police, Hyderabad which helps us

tranport relief material to different areas. Besides getting calls from

the groups of migrant workers, we also coordinate with the Hyderabad police to locate

the needy families and provide relief. 

 

 Telangana State Minister for Minority Welfare, Shri. Koppula Eshwar

participating in COVID-19 Relief Distribution of AIM ASIA at Rajarampally, Dt.

Jagitial in his own constituency. Following is his gracious note to

Bishop Joab Lohara.

 

As of  date (23/04/2020), we have helped over 5,000 needy people.  We want to

be able to continue this good work until the lockdown is lifted.

We provide each family with 10 kgs of good rice, 2 kgs of lentil, 1 kg. edible oil,

soap, sanitizers and masks. The needs are enormous, everywhere.

The situation is unprecedented.

We have so many heart breaking stories. Some people have nothing at all to eat.

A widow  at Baragadra broke into tears placing her helpless hands on the

relief supplies we gave. She and her two  little children had nothing for the day.  

Wish we could do the same for more people in desperation. 

Here is a glimpse into our relief services:

    WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE! 

 

  

We, at AIM ASIA, do not talk about caring.

We care destitute children who come in our way.

We do not just talk about helping. We help

them to the best of our ability. 

 

We do not just talk about building broken lives.  We provide every possible care so a destitute child may receive education and move in to the mainstream of the society.

The hostels run by AIM ASIA have been shaping the future of thousands of destitute children. Sabir, Sunil, Balamani, Pramila, Kavitha, Smarty, Smily and hoards of other children are university graduates today because of our care.

 

Sabir is a finance analyst after his MBA, Sunil is a multimedia professional, Balamani is an engineer and Pramila is a staff nurse after her Bachelor of Nursing. Many of our children have made a space for themselves in government and corporate job.   

Our facilities may be limited and our resources scanty, but that does not stop us from taking one more child so we can make a difference in his/her life.

Sanghamitra from an obscure village in Odisha came to Immanuel Business School to do her MBA. She did not speak English well but had a good academic record. We engaged special teachers to teach English.

Her parents could not afford to pay for her education. IBS gave her a scholarship that was sufficient to cover the cost of her tuition, room and board.

Special English classes, interaction with co-students, academic lessons, exposure to corporate business, soft skill training, etc. prepared students like Sanghamitra to be what they are today.

Sanghamitra graduated from IBS with an MBA in marketing and now has a decent job in the port city of Visakhapatnam.

The very same thing can happen to anyone who has a desire to pursue higher education at IBS.

If you are just looking for a degree to be able to do the functions of a job, do not choose IBS. But if you want to be an employable graduate and contribute to the success of your employer organization, then join IBS. We will put through a gateway to the busines world.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 IT IS ME, KAVITHA ON THE TRIKE!

 

Kavitha, 40, crawls - she cannot walk. Polio struck her in her childhood and

made both her legs immobile. Her mother is a leprosy patient. There is

no one to take care of her. She visits our Care Center every month for a

suppy of free grocery. That is how  her daily needs are met.  

 

When she receives a bag of rice, she cannot carry it home.  

She lives near our College campus in Solipet. We provided her

a trike recently. She can now ride the trike with a load

of rice on it.

 

Life became a lot easier for Kavitha with the gift of a trike.

She does not have to crawl on the dust hurting

her feet and making her saree dirty.

 

 

WATERING THE THIRSTY VILLAGE

We receive requests from several villages every month where people do not have access to safe drinking water. Depending on our resources, we provide Tube Well or a Well with a motor.  The well in the picture was given at village Belar in Chhatisgarh.

It has been our joy to see the joy on people's faces!

A MILLIONAIRE TODAY,

PENNILESS TOMORROW! 

 

DO NOT LET THIS YEAR

PASS BY NON-PRODUCTIVE!

 

The Year comes and the year goes. Does it matter?

There are still people in the world today who cannot read the date on their calendar. It does not matter to them if today is a Saturday or a Monday.

The Year comes and the year goes. Does it matter to them?

There are people who live just for today with no plans for tomorrow. They forget God has gifted us with a journey in this life between our first breath and the last breath. They do not care to know that what we do between these two breaths impact our eternity.

When we think about eternity, there is a feeling that eternity is something beyond the time, beyond this life – it is where God is.

Wrong theology!

Our God does not dwell in eternity; rather the eternity dwells in Him (Isa 57:15).

Therefore we do not have to get to eternity to meet our God. But when we have God, we have eternity in us: “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also put eternity in their hearts…” (Eccl 3:11).

Awesome! Times passes but eternity does not. Everything that passes in time passes into eternity. Therefore those who have eternity in them think beyond the time. They are careful to leverage their time in order to impact eternity.

Do you wonder why the wealthy cricketer C. T. Studd emptied his life and his bank balance into world mission? Do you wonder why David Brainerd preferred to live in the woods and die at the age of 29? Do you wonder why David Livingston didn’t care about being torn by wild animals? Do you wonder why David Wilkerson risked his life to take the good news to the mafia?

Do you wonder?

There were many predictions that the world would come to an end in 2013.  The world did not end but many lives have perished. Two more months, this year will be gone with a few of our impressions.  Many may not care about it but someone is collecting these impressions we make in time and how they impact our eternity.

The Apostle Paul warned the Christians at Corinth, "Each one's work will become clear, for the Day will declare it because it will be revealed by fire; the fire will test each one's work, of what sort it is (1Cor 3:13).  

Paul actually did not say anything new.  Jesus had made it amply clear in the parable that He taught (Luke 16:20-31), giving a vivid description of how a rich man's glory turned into ashes overnight.

My Dear Friend, are you doing anything today for your eternity? Do not let this year pass by non-productive. 

“There is surely a future hope for you; do not let your hope be cut off” (Proverbs 23:18).
