In a collaborative drive to ensure road safety, Tapas Foundation along with Confederation of Indian
Industry(CII), Young Indians & Yi Bhopal conducted a Road Safety Awareness Campaign in Bhopal,
Madhya Pradesh. We inaugurated the campaign by taking over the road through a Bike Rally where 40
riders came along in their gear and glory to spread the message of road safety. We collaborated with
Bhopal Riders Community for the rally.

With the support of IEHE NSS Bhopal, we performed 10 street plays on road safety in Bhopal city and
Adampur Chhawani. Street play has always been a great medium for us to connect with the public. As a
part of the campaign, we created awareness about sensible honking in and near 15 hospital premises in
Bhopal. We also hosted an awareness session for ISBT bus and highway truck drivers on various safety
measures that they should always follow.

Team Tapas also engaged with children during the campaign but on a more colourful note – through
drawing and quiz competitions. We covered 15 schools in the city and screened a short film – Chota Cop
for the students which is based on road safety. With Foster For Furrballs, an organisation working for
animal welfare, we ensured the safety of stray cattle who are often the victims of road accidents,
especially during the night. We did a radium strip drive to cover their horns with neon reflective bands
which will make them visible during the night and protect them from any unforeseen accidents.
It was a very fulfilling and effective campaign where we came together to ensure road safety. We want
to thank our collaborative partners – We Care, Young Indians Bhopal, Bhopal Riders Community, IEHE
NSS Bhopal, Foster For Furrballs and Mayank Kapoor for their generous contribution that made this
campaign a great success.

“Each small step towards personal reform is a big step towards social reform.” 

Tapas foundation started as one man’s journey to follow his passion for performing and social reform back in 2015.

Vipul Singh set out to propagate messages of social reform into people through what he does best – talking and connecting with them. As a vagrant traveller and social activist, he started performing to anyone who would care to lend him his time, expecting a desire to reform and change; and whatever resources people could spare in exchange.


Over the span of the past five years, he has travelled and advocated all over the country, reaching out to people through his self-composed and performed solo street plays, which now amount to a total tally of 970+, having earned him records for the same.

His vision and mission grew from there to what it is now – a compact and fast-growing registered non-profit organization creating visible impact in the lives of people. Headed by Vipul Singh, and joined by a highly able and dedicated team, Tapas foundation has worked on issues like women empowerment, anti-trafficking, digital learning, menstruation, acid-attack survivor stories, education, environment, hunger and disaster relief, water crisis, among many others. Having worked in association with different NGOs, government bodies, corporates and even individual do-gooders, Tapas has since worked in 19 states and 6 union territories, with special focus on tier 2 and tier 3 cities.

Tapas foundation has engaged with and impacted over 15 lakh people on-ground and reached over 10 lakh people through social media, working through a two-pronged approach of awareness creation and advocacy to ensure maximum impact.
