Wonders can be done at any age when shown the right path and given the right support. An 11-year-old boy from Kolkata, Yuvraj Shah, at a very tender age has turned his mirror into a window of opportunities by developing Medmaze Application.

Let’s read a little about his inspiring journey:

About Yuvraj:

Yuvraj Shah

Yuvraj Shah, a very brilliant boy from Kolkata, has created an application that can significantly improve healthcare for the underprivileged by helping them access expensive medicines easily.

Yuvraj is one of the twelve winners of the Silicon Valley Program conducted by WhiteHat Jr. WhiteHat Jr teaches coding to kids between 6 to 14 years of age. It aims to harness the natural creativity of kids and shift their mindset from being consumers to creators at an early age.

His app was selected after vetting 7000+ entries from across India, where kids were invited to think of an original idea that solves a real-life problem and code an app independently.

As a part of this program, he will visit Silicon Valley in the US to pitch his app to top venture capitalists (VCs) like Nexus Venture Partners and Owl Ventures.

 Identifying a Basic problem:

His grandfather’s medicines were not utilized after he finished the required dosage. He felt these unused medicines could save many lives. Across India, many underprivileged people don’t have access to medicines which leads to common illnesses.

We have often witnessed a shortage of medicines in government hospitals. Due to this many patients who are covered under the government’s healthcare scheme, cannot afford medicines and have to purchase them from private shops.

The solution that Yuvraj got:

Solving those problems might seem insurmountable. But this creative boy who identified this issue and tackled it with passion and energy.

Yuvraj created the Medmaze App, which helps people to donate their unused but not expired medicine to government hospitals.

 How Yuvraj created the Medmaze app

While learning to code on the WhiteHat Jr platform, Yuvraj thought of using his learning to create an app to solve this issue and help people in need. This is when he decided to build the Medmaze App.

The app allows individuals to connect with the nearest government hospital and donate leftover medicines. Hospitals can, in turn, give them to those who cannot afford them.

Summing Up!

It is the size of one’s will which determines success. This Boy paved his way to success by working hard and being patient.
