I had applied for Jagriti Yatra this september and within two weeks I was selected for the Yatra.
Jagriti Yatra is an annual train journey that that takes hundreds of India’s highly motivated youth (with some participation of international students) between the ages of 20-25 and experienced professionals with age above 25, on a eighteen day national odyssey, introducing them to unsung heroes of India.
The aim is to awaken the spirit of entrepreneurship – both social and economic – within India’s youth by exposing them to individuals and institutions that are developing unique solutions to India’s challenges. Through this national event we have begun to inspire the youth of India to lead and develop institutions both nationally and within their communities.
The cost of the Yatra is Rs. 32,000. I am looking for someone who could sponsor me for the trip. As a freshly passed out college graduate and a wannabe entrepreneur, my life’s savings are zero. If you could sponsor me, I would be really thankful to you.
Since Jagriti Yatra is a national networking journey, if you want, I can use my experience and share that with you with a business approach which might make your business or organization more reputable by connecting to those insights and enhancing your business establishments accordingly.
The vision of Jagriti Yatra is to inspire young Indians living in the middle of the Indian demographic diamond (Rs 40-Rs 120 per day) to lead development by taking to enterprise. By doing so, they can turn from being job seekers to job creators. Apart from this economic argument, they also discover a purpose that is appropriate for their talents. Only if we create a movement around enterprise led development will India’s youth employment and development issues will be resolved.
