Jagriti Yatra not only gives its Yatris a chance of interaction with change makers of the society, but also gives them an opportunity to implement their learning in the workshop – BIZ GYAN TREE.

Jagriti Yatra 2013 arrives at Barpar in Deoria to the beats of dhols and garlands. Deoria was the destination where Yatris had to ideate and come up with a feasible social entrepreneurship. The ideation had to start with certain assumption about a typical Indian village and the group had to come up with two viable business models which could be non-profit or profit-making. Groups were made with the idea of having maximum diversity in any group. Though diverse group poses its own challenges, like cultural differences between the members, lack of understanding of a set of village problems etc, but all this was overcome through communication. Jagriti Yatris had to take care of several aspects about an innovative social idea, primary being its acceptance on general public level. There should be certain level of social and industrial acceptance for any social entrepreneurship idea. BIZ GYAN tree aims on nation building through this
