Legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar has come to the help of 19-year-old Dipti Vishvasrao, a resident of Zarye village in Ratnagiri district, and she is now on course towards becoming the first lady doctor from her village. Even though she was a brilliant student all throughout and had always dreamt of becoming a doctor, but it was not easy at all there were many constraints. During the lockdown, she would travel a kilometer every day since her village was remotely located, so she could get a network connection to be able to continue her studies online. Her hard work paid rich interests as Dipti who had performed exceptionally well in her board examinations, and also successfully cleared the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET), secured admission to the Government Medical College at Akola.
But that was not enough, as even after getting admission to a medical college, financial constraints were blocking the path for Dipti from pursuing her dreams. After getting admission to the medical college, she was unable to afford the fees and other expenses due to her father?s average income. While her relatives contributed to the fees, she was still short of funds for the hostel and other expenses. Just when she was losing hope, Tendulkar came to the rescue. His timely intervention through his foundation, in association with the Seva Sahyog Foundation (SSF) ensured that Dipti is well on track to realizing her dreams and aspirations of becoming the first girl from her village to become a doctor. Here Sachin Shared Dipti's Video, see here:

Let us tell you that despite hurdles in reaching her family at their remote village, Tendulkar along with officials of the SSF ensured that the required funds were provided within a short span of time. Dipti is just one of the several recipients of the partnership between Sachin Tendulkar through his foundation and Vidyarthi Vikas Yojna (VVY) -- a project of the SSF. This project works towards providing financial support to students from the underprivileged section of society to pursue higher education.
