I'm Praneeth Nagu and I'm a fourth year engineering student from IIIT Bangalore, India. I've been selected to attend Jagriti Yatra 2017 - an 8000km long train journey to feel the pulse of India and be the change we all want to see. It takes 450 carefully selected youth to meet with iconic role model entrepreneurs who have created a remarkable social and economic impact.
It is a once in a LIFE TIME OPPORTUNITY to interact with leaders from different parts of nations working in various domains.I would get to learn from the perspectives and ideas of change-makers today to be one tomorrow in creating a better India.
Jagriti focuses on the seven verticals of development:
Agriculture, Education, Energy, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Water & Sanitation, Arts & Culture & Sports
Within this agenda, Jagriti is focused on the adaptation and replication of successful enterprise models across Middle India.
Jagriti Yatra aims to nurture 1 Lakh (1,00,000) entrepreneurs by 2022 and create 10 Lakh (10,00,000) jobs in this process.
The vision of Jagriti is 'building India through enterprise'. It aims to inspire the young Indians living in the middle of the Indian demographic diamond to lead development by taking to enterprise, thus unleashing a movement of Enterprise-led-development.
Jagriti Yatra Selection proofs :
I've been selected from the 20,000 applications that came from all over the world. The only thing that stops me from going forward is the fee of INR 80000 after getting 20% scholarship.This trip is not for fun or pleasure. It is to build a better India for us to live in.Creating a better tomorrow for everyone in our country.
I'd be thankful and blessed if you could support me to be a part of JY 2017, that can change my life and empower me in creating a healthy society by solving problems around us.
