One of the biggest takeaways that the students of AIM for Seva have learnt is the power of contribution.
After the boys of Madhya Pradesh, it’s now the turn of the girls of AIM for Seva to give back to the institution that nurtured them in their formative years.
Jemima Molshoy, an alumnus of the Gayathri Devi AIM for Seva Chatralayam for Girls, Khategaon, Madhya Pradesh, is currently based with a finance company in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. She contributed Rs. 10,000 towards AIM for Seva recently.
In all candour she reveals, “This is very small token from my side and I feel very humiliated to call it as a donation as it is very small compared to whatever you, AIM for Seva has given to me and many other students like me. But I promise that I will keep doing small, small contributions in future also and will never forget AIM for Seva.”
The NGO is “family” to her. “With power comes responsibility. Bearing this in mind, I have always strived to be humble to everyone around me. I dream of working for the welfare of the elderly in society in whichever way I can.”
The daughter of a domestic helper from Tripura, Jemima Molshoy joined the Gayathri Devi AIM for Seva Chatralayam for Girls in Khategaon, Madhya Pradesh, when she was in Class 8. Subsequently, she completed her schooling from the Inder & Prabha Sharma Girls School, Khategaon, Madhya Pradesh, in 2016. In 2017, she joined the BBA (bachelors in administration course) at Indus University, Ahmedabad, Gujarat.
Jemima was recently promoted to the post of HR (human resource) and administration executive at Avyukta Capital Management Private Limited. She aspires to be a management consultant one day.
In the end, she thanks her coordinator for his love and support and in trusting in her. “Nothing would have been possible if it weren’t for Swamiji’s (Swami Aishvaryananda Saraswati, the coordinator of AIM for Seva’s projects in Madhya Pradesh) guidance. I would like to thank each and every member of the AIM for Seva family,” adds Jemima.
Similarly, Iaineh Khongdup, an alumnus of the Swami Dayananda AIM for Seva Chatralayam, Belgaum, Karnataka, who completed her graduation in nursing sometime back is now employed with a hospital in Pune. She offered her first salary to AIM for Seva.
Iaineh completed her B.Sc (Nursing) from the KLE Institute of Nursing Sciences, Belgaum, Karnataka. She hails from Lyndem, a village in Meghalaya. Iaineh joined AIM for Seva in 2011 when she was studying in Class 8.
“My life has changed after coming to the Swami Dayananda AIM for Seva Chatralayam for Girls, Belgaum, Karnataka. My thoughts, my character, my ambition, everything is comparatively different from my friends. AIM for Seva has nurtured me with samskaras and discipline. The institution has taught me to be kind to others and to manage my own things. After being part of the Chatralayam eco system, I have been able to face and manage difficult situations and make my own decisions. Most importantly, this intervention has helped me to become rich by heart and grow and mature as a person.”
Thank you Jemima and Iaineh for your valuable contribution and keep on doing your good work.
