Pabbathi Harish

Harish’s life has been full of struggles and pain ever since he could remember. His last memory of parents is them suffering from depression. When he was just nine-years-old he saw his father killed himself over a land dispute with relatives and soon after his mother also gave-in to the constant harassment of relatives and chose death over him.

After the death of his parents, none of his relatives came forward and he, along with his younger brother, was admitted to an orphanage at Jafarganj. Bala Vikasa women program members of the area took note of brothers and enrolled them in its orphan education program. The first thing that BV did was to readmit them in school and brought their focus back on studies.

With the financial and emotional help provided by BV, Harish completed his intermediate education, while worked as a daily wage worker to make ends meet. With the dream of becoming a doctor, he appeared in medial entrance text and performed decent for the first attempt without any coaching and guidance, but not good enough to score a seat in a government college. He wanted to try his luck again with some coaching but financial crunch and lack of sponsors made him give up his dream.

He didn’t give up and secured a place in Kakatiya College of Physiotherapy to study Bachelors of Physiotherapy. Currently, he is in the final year of graduation and doing an internship at Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Hospital, Warangal. He is still working as a daily wage worker to meet daily expenses and has taken shelter at a friend’s house.

Harish needs your support to complete his studies and build a better future. He is a brilliant student who loves reading and aspires to appear in Civil Services Exam someday. He believes in serving the people in need and gives back to society.
