For Dr. Jasmin Prajapti pursuing his MBBS and becoming a doctor was a distant dream of his deceased father, one that he was motivated to realize. The commitment to pursue his and his father’s aspiration was brought to life by the Yuva Unstoppable scholarship program. Recommended for support by his high school authorities, Yuva Unstoppable reached out to his family and there was no stopping this dreamer who is currently rigorously preparing for his Post Graduate examination. Dr. Prajapti is one of the early recipients of the Yuva Unstoppable scholarship program. This journey of becoming a doctor was never easy for Jasmin. During the most important years of his studies, his father was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease, for 2 years the family provided him with whatever treatment they could but he lost both his kidneys and was on Dialysis for two years. In spite of all the trauma and challenges the family was going through, Jasmin never lost his will and conviction of becoming a doctor Studied day and night and cleared his Medical Exams with flying colors. Jasmin has always been a very resilient child; he lost his father a day before his university exams and even after going through so much emotional pain and trauma he went back to university from his village and gave his exam. Through this inspirational journey of becoming a doctor, Jasmin has become an example for all the other students of Yuva Unstoppable. Jasmin Prajapati is the epitome of Determination and Conviction.

Although education is classified as a primary need and right, it remains a distant dream for many children in India who either don’t have access or the means to fulfill their educational aspirations. As India’s youth number base widens, we need to be aware of the effects of educational disadvantages and disruptions faced by poor students due to a lack of economic stability and security. Yuva Unstoppable is an India & US registered leading NGO founded in 2006 by a group of zealous individuals led by Amitabh Shah with a mission to empower children and youth through various initiatives.
