YUVA Unstoppable is a non-governmental organisation in India. It works towards education of underprivileged children and involving them in various non-curricular activities. The organisation is spread across 30 cities in India, with a task force of almost 100,000 volunteers. YUVA’s founder and current CEO is Amitabh Shah, a graduate of Yale University.

History[edit]

On his return to India in May 2005 after graduation, Amitabh Shah[1] visited orphanages, the local Blind People's Association, two slum children schools and poor vagabonds found near the railway stations.

He founded Yuva Unstoppable in the same year, with a small group of enthusiastic individuals. Since then it has mobilized more than 120,000 young people with a simple aim of creating a better world to live in.

In 2010, former Indian president Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam addressed Yuva Unstoppable's 5th anniversary gathering.[2][3]

As of 2017 Yuva Unstoppable has become a nationwide movement, active in 32 Indian cities.
