It is one year since we launched Literacy Abhiyan and we have already seen enormous interest being created among the adult populace.  

The literacy projects are in operation in Telugu, Hindi, Odia, Bengali and Assamese languages. We have hired trainers, appointed teachers, purchased primers, slates, whiteboards, petro-max, etc. It is fascinating to see the adults, senior people trace alphabets with their chalks. The smile is spontaneous when they have the mastery over one alphabet, or when they can recognize an alphabet from the primer lesson books.



One year has passed; hundreds of men and women have learnt to read and write. They are able to count their money, read letters and sign their names instead of giving thumb impressions.

Life has changed for them. They have literally conquered the old adage: "Jo zindagi mein kabhi nahi hua, O budhapan mein keise hoga?" (What was never achieved in life before, how can it be achieved in old age?



Some of the young men who have done well in their tests, we are encouraging them to study hard and join distance education program.

Right in our MBA college campus at Solipet, we have a study center for BA, BCom and PG program granted by Kakatiya University. We would love to see some of these men and women take on a degree program some day.  

It is surely an uphill task but not impossible. We will offer all possible help to see a community transform.

established at Solipet with a view to provide higher

education to the underprivileged.  We have sent out 3

cohorts of graduates by now; another is just completing.   


Most of our graduates are placed in multi-national


companies and making a good career. Some have landed


jobs in the government too, while some others have


become entrepreneurs.  A few have even gone abroad to


pursue higher studies in the U.S.A. 


Since its inception, IBS has been sending its top ranking


students abroad every year for an exposure to international


business and foreign culture at the cost of the college. 


IBS stands for quality and creativity. We strive to bring world


class education to your doorstep. It has been our passion to


offer quality education and teach values of life.






PURPOSE: To initiate adult literacy program in low literacy areas with a goal of making 100,000 people literate in the next 10 years (2017-2027).

ANNUAL TARGET: To make 10,000 literate each year.

MANPOWER REQUIRED: A contingent of 2,000 trained teachers. Every class will have an average of 30 students. 




Literacy is the ability to read, view, write, design, speak and listen in a way that allows you to communicate effectively. The power of literacy lies not just in the ability to read and write but also in a person’s capacity to apply these skills to effectively connect, interpret and discern the intricacies of the world in which they live.

Research shows, people with good literacy skills are more likely to have higher self-esteem, better health, better jobs and higher wages than those with poor literacy skills.

Literacy impacts a person’s economic wellbeing, aspirations, family life, health and cultural engagement.  There is overwhelming evidence that literacy has a significant relationship with a person’s happiness and success.

Helping someone to read and write effectively or acquire the basic math skills so many of us take for granted improves the future of everyone in society.  Literacy is critical to economic development as well as individual and community wellbeing.

The evening pulsated with enormous activities.  From the ribbon cutting at the main gate to the unveiling of inaugural stone at IBS building, there were several stops for the parade to engage in unfurling the University banner, cutting the ribbon at college cafeteria, multipurpose building, library, computer lab, etc.

The 10-acres IBS campus was beautifully lit with colorful lights for the grand inauguration. Patrick Patterson cut the ribbon at the main entrance, and Dr. David Goodnight unfurled the University flag. The colorfully dressed band then moved on the parade to University cafeteria where Smt. Christine Lazarus cut the ribbon to declare it open.

By then thousands of people had gathered in the campus with media crowding the portico area of MBA block to capture the moment when Bishop Joab Lohara, Bishop of Immanuel Conference and Vice President of Free Methodist World Conference unveiled the inaugural stone.

A live music band enthralled the audience that comprised ofresidents from and around Solipet, visitors from the city, academicians, political and Christian leaders, and government officials.
