Endorsements: Role ModelsA network of achievers: role model entrepreneurs helping youth, furthering growthPaul and Sabriye, Founders, Braille without Borders & IISEWe are convinced that the Jagriti Yatra initiative will positively shape the future of India. It offers a wonderful platform that will nourish the entrepreneurial spirit in the Indian youth of today leading to a better tomorrow.

Dr. S. Aravind, Aravind Eye CareThe energy levels that the team has when they visit our institution are so palpable and it kindles the same spirit in our organization. The inquisitiveness to learn and also explore the possibility of them being change agents is a significant character of this Yatra. We at Aravind look forward to this event eagerly every year. Visiting the train and meeting the young minds is a special experience.

Anshu Gupta, Founder, GoonjBringing about behavioral and thought level changes in people is quite a challenging job. In Jagriti Yatra the impact is massive and deep. We at GOONJ have seen this first hand with the Yatris. There is a vast change in their vision, thoughts and behavior after the Yatra. The Jagriti Yatra, to me is a source of energy and inspiration, from the brightest 400 youth from all over the country
