Bukya Mahender is an alumnus of the RDF VAPV Junior College, who worked hard to realize his and his father’s, a farm worker’s dreams of becoming a doctor. Though he passed in 2nd division in the BPC (Biology, Physics, Chemistry) in Junior College, he was determined to realize his goal and lead his family out of poverty into a secure life. We are very proud to report that he is working in a corporate hospital now as a General Physician.

Here is Mahender’s story in his own words –

“I had a Telugu medium background. Joining Intermediate education in English transformed my life. I thought BiPC was hard but my lecturers taught me well, making me understand the concepts in a very easy manner. I really worked hard, keeping in mind a plan of action. I secured a second division. With my father’s encouragement I joined the BAMS course. I was overcome with fear in the beginning because the topics were difficult and the difficult vocabulary made it even more difficult. It took 6 months to settle in college. I overcame all my fears when I remembered the confident teachings of RDF teachers. Finally I worked hard and passed. RDF has changed my life. I thank RDF with all my heart. My wish is to provide medical facilities to all hostel students next year onwards free of cost. I have undertaken a pledge to visit the college and explain to all the children about life and about how ‘health is always wealth.’”

Balu, Mahender’s father

Here’s what Mahender’s father, Balu, has to say – (translated from Telugu)

“I felt elated when I came to know that my son has become a doctor. He is the first doctor in my village colony. The credit goes to RDF. College changed his life. He learnt many things here like discipline, obedience and hard work nature. I understood that RDF was, quite clearly, the driving force behind my son’s success. This goes to show that RDF makes dreams come true, if we have the right attitude.”
