Bhima - Education Change

Bhima Sabar is a previous student of Koinpur and Kankia School who has broken expectations and shown exceptional motivation. This bright 20 year old belongs to a tribal family from Mada village in Gajapati district. His father is a farmer, while his two elder brothers head to Kerala for daily wage labour work after harvest season. Two of his younger siblings are still studying, whilst one has dropped out of school. Bhima completed Class X in 2010 where he was the school topper, scoring 86% in the Odisha State Board HSC exam. He then completed his Plus 2 from Karunashanti Residential College, where he was encouraged to pursue medicine. In order to follow his dreams Bhima had to spend several extra hours a day studying English and he now speaks and writes at a very high standard. He is currently studying in his first year at MKCG Medical College in Berhampur after intense preparation for the AIPMT.

Bhima is modest and believes that the school has played a great role in shaping his life and helping him live a disciplined life. He talks highly of the teachers in school who have supported him through most of his life and he hopes to work toward the development of the region he hails from.
