Triumphs Against All Odds: Inspiring Journeys of Resilience

Realizing the childhood dream

Sakshi Birje was a 7th grade student in Govt Kannada Higher Primary School, Vantamuri Colony, Belagavi when she was selected for RCF's talent nurturing program. Sakshi's father sells vegetables and fruits on a cart and her mother works as a housemaid. Their family of five, which included two younger siblings of Sakshi, lives in a small dwelling in a noisy, densely populated street of Ashraya Colony, Rukmini Nagar.

Sakshi had the dream of becoming a doctor. After 3 years of rigorous training in Science, Math, English and communication skills, Sakshi was selected for the SAADHANA Prakalpa of Rashtrotthana Parishat for free pre-university education and NEET coaching in Bangalore. Sakshi did well in NEET and secured admission for MBBS in a Government medical college - Bidar Institute of Medical Sciences. Sakshi's journey has inspired many girls in the locality where her family lives. Now, Sakshi has a bigger dream - to give back to the society and mentor others like her.
