More than 10 million people are living across the globe with disabilities that don't have solutions, just because they can't afford them. The idea was to help by giving them the proper prosthetic care they deserve.

Prashant Gade is a 25-year-old social entrepreneur and an innovator. When Prashant was 22, he met an amputee, and this incident changed his life. Prashant quit his job and gave his full time attention to designing an affordable prosthetic hand. At the time, prosthetic hands normally cost 10,000 US dollars, but through determination and hard work, Prashant developed a prosthetic hand for less than 100 US dollars.
