Jagrik is a wordplay and a concept that combines Jagruk (Awakened and Aware) and Nagrik (Citizen). The Jagriks act as active citizens for the jag (communities). ‘Jagriks’ play this interactive game in pairs over five weeks and undertake tasks which are both self-reflective and social in nature. On completing their weekly tasks, the ‘Jagriks’ come together to share their learnings in weekly meetings called ‘Jamghats’.
Simultaneously ‘Jagriks’ post their experiences and learnings through videos, stories and pictures on a dedicated Facebook page ‘Be a Jagrik!’. Adolescents and young people who participate in this journey are called ‘Jagriks’. Over five lakh young citizens across 17 states in India have experienced the journey through on ground and online engagement.
