Pratap is a true inspiration for people with disabilities and others. Once a school dropout, he now holds a postgraduate degree in Computer Applications. His mother always encouraged him to pursue his studies and build a career.
When he was in class 8, he had to leave school. The school infrastructure was ill-equipped and teachers were very demotivating. However, a few years later, he resumed and completed his education successfully.
But after completing his studies, he found it difficult to find a suitable job. He was rejected in many job interviews because of his disability; places that accepted him had an inaccessible workstation. He managed to open a grocery shop, but that too was not enough to make ends meet. While looking for more options, Pratap met the Samarth SoochnaPreneur (SSP) team during a training workshop in Alwar. Pratap was mesmerized to see how the program is empowering and changing the lives of people with disabilities.
He expressed interest to be a part of the larger team and, after profiling and interviewing him, he was selected as a SoochnaPreneur. He was given digital infrastructure and, he received training on how to use digital tools for social good. Today, he is earning a living for his family and disseminating information to remote places in his region.
