Why Yatra

Yatra means Journey. In order to understand a concept through integrated approach which can have a sustainable impact, we have designed a Yatra (journey). The Ganga Yatra is like a living semester programme of one and a half months which undertakes the students on an experiential journey. Ganga Yatra offers young seekers – age 15 to 25 – the opportunity to embark on a transformative learning adventure with the goal of self-discovery. The program is based on the idea that helping young people discover who they are and what brings them alive is not only meaningful at an individual level, but also essential for building a socially just, environmentally sustainable and consciously awakened future.

    " One of my biggest fear was public speaking because I have seen that whenever someone does a . mistake people make fun of that person they laugh on him and when I get a chance to speak that comes first into my mind that if I do mistake people will laugh at me but speaking in evening circle time really helped me to take my fear out."

    Aryaman Deo

    " Throughout the span of our one month long yatra, the Ganga Yatra gave birth to some interesting perspectives to look through, and understand a few things about myself. To be aware of how I react to certain things and how certain interactions can have an effect on me, gives me a profound feeling of depth and inner stability. "
