Over the years, scores of active citizens and students have supported Janaagraha in different measures. Janaagraha’s transition from inspiring ‘practical patriotism’ to improving ‘quality of life’ was made possible by these interns and volunteers who mixed passion with rigour. Offer your time and be the change you want to see. For the uninitiated ones, remember Tata Tea’s “Jaago Re” campaign?
The internship opportunities are available in practically every aspect of studies that one can think of. Engineers, MBAs, Social Science students, writers, lawyers, urban planners, research fellows, economists – there is something for everyone!
