Genesis Founded in 1993, Nav Jagriti is recognized as a pioneer grassroots organization in Bihar. It was founded as a society by the group of likeminded and concerned youth of Parsa block of Saran district with an objective to mitigate the flood hazards and to provide a pro active citizen centric public services in the flood prone area of North Bihar. The main motivation of its genesis was heading a great struggle by the youth of Parsa block who were empathised seeing the victims of the fatal flood and continuous water logging since decades in his area. Finally in 1991 these youth had started an informal organization “Jal Jamao Virodhee Sangharsh committee”. Initially the committee was dedicatedly highlighting and raising the issues related to flood and its disaster on different platforms but it was limited to Saran only. These youth had wings of fire thus they were unstoppable. They wanted to bring a larger social change in the lives of people who were affected by the flood, thus that informal committee turns into a structured organization called Nav Jagriti (NJ) and since its inception it has been working day in day out.
