Jagriti Yatra is an annual train journey that takes hundreds of India's highly motivated youth (and some international participants) on an eighteen day national odyssey, introducing them to unsung heroes of India.
The aim is to awaken the spirit of entrepreneurship - both social and economic - by exposing them to individuals and institutions that are developing unique solutions to India's challenges. This national event has begun to inspire a new generation of changemakers to lead and develop institutions both nationally and within their own communities.
