While the rest of the world spoke about the need for change, some people awakened to the need for being that change. JAAGO RE! ONE BILLION VOTES movement wouldn’t have been possible without the coming together of TATA TEA and JANAAGRAHA . JAAGO RE! stands for social awakening and has other initiatives too. The BENEFITS of these initiatives are for all to see.
I hope the passion of THE TEAM led by our BOARD OF ADVISORS inspires you as it inspired me.
Jaago Re! One Billion Votes is a non-partisan national campaign launched by Janaagraha Centre for Citizenship and Democracy (a non-profit organization) and Tata Tea, to awaken and enable the citizens of India, especially the youth, to register for voting. Its mission is to register everyone in India to vote in the next 5 years, for better governance. In the launch year (2008-09), the campaign targets the top 35 cities of India, and aims to register millions of youth before the 2009 general elections.
This initiative sounds a wake up call for the billion people of this country to unite and bring about change. A change in the quality of governance that can happen only with active participation through voting, and electing quality leaders. A change by strengthening the roots of Indian democracy.
