In order to fulfil their aspirations of becoming doctors, Amrita Sahu, the daughter of a daily wage worker in Odisha, and 19 other youngsters from impoverished families passed the NEET exam with the help of a humanitarian organisation. Of the 20 qualified candidates, 15 will be admitted to the MBBS programme, and the remaining five will be eligible for the BDS programme.

With a NEET score of 635, Jagannath Giri—the son of a daily wage worker in the Odisha district of Kendrapara—has come to a step closer to realising his dream of becoming a doctor. "Our family occasionally has to go without eating while we sleep. Along with my father, I occasionally work in the fields to help my family out financially. I've succeeded thanks to the Zindagi Foundation's leadership and labour of love "Jagannath Giri stated.

The meritorious low-income students were picked up by Zindagi Foundation, which also handled their transportation, lodging, and boarding needs. They were also given study aids and tips on how to succeed in the All India Medical Entrance Examination. Ajay Bahadur Singh's Zindagi Foundation, which he founded after missing out on a medical degree due to his low socioeconomic status, has at least 20 successful alumni out of its original class of 21 pupils.

The family of daily labourers, landless farmers, weavers, bookbinders, Anganwadi workers, hotel waiters, and roadside Tiffin vendors includes all of the children who are expected to become doctors. With this year's results, as many as 90 kids from low-income families have successfully completed NEET, a difficult undertaking for any student from a wealthy home.

The Zindagi Foundation is getting ready to expand outside of Odisha when it celebrates five years of success in 2021–2022, and children from other states will now be able to prepare for the NEET under this foundation.
