Motivation to go on the Yatra:
According to me one of the Next big challenges in front of our country is making technology available for the rural areas effectively and efficiently.
Smart India = smart cities + smart agriculture
Government is giving many facilities and policies for startups ‘Startup India Standup India 2016’.
But the main problem is rural part remain untouched from such schemes or facilities. ‘online business’ is not know concept for them. Reason is lack of education and new technologies. Hence, technologies like computer, internet should be taught and made available in rural area. So they can opt education and smart farming techniques. This will lead to increase the income and indirectly making India financial strong. And the circle will definitely grow.
I would definitely get plan of action in jagriti yatra.
How Jagriti Yatra will help to go forward on the way to my noble dream:
So in order to understand problems of society and to find solutions for them, By the visits to role models in this Yatra would give me the better understanding of intensity of those problems and would get the direction to solve them. Jagriti Yatra will be very vital learning experience for me. I could see how the technology is playing vital role for better rural India.
I am looking forward to refining my goal, brainstorm ideas, understand challenges faced by people in rural/ semi-urban areas, find solutions, create opportunities for the masses and learn about various facets of establishing a social enterprise. Jagriti Yatra is that platform for me- to help me actualize my goal and I need your love and support to help me reach that platform!
Some more things I will Do:
Apart from being on my journey of awakening, I will be drafting the key learning from the role model visits, panel discussions, Biz Gyan Tree and interactions on the train along with my co-Yatris. You all will be able to download this report- Yatra Saar 2017- later from the site.
The Yatra fee is 94,000 INR of which I have received the level 2 scholarship of 60,000 INR from the Jagriti Team. I am looking for sponsors who can help me with an amount of 40,000 INR out of which 34,000 INR is the Yatra fees and 6,000 INR is registration amount that I seek.
