Fourteen underprivileged Odisha students from Zindagi Foundation cracked the NEET this year. This foundation was started in 2017 by Ajaya Bahadur Shah who aspired to become a doctor himself but lack of funds and family obligations became the road block. The foundation’s programme is specifically set for those talented students who cannot afford tuition classes. After overcoming the hardships of life and the financial crisis, he decided to help the needy students in achieving their dreams.
Accomodation, food, studies and coaching of medical entrance exam of the poor students is borne by the foundation. What is amazing is that all the 14 students coached by the foundation made it to the medical college.
