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.

Hunger In India 2.0

Hunger in India – a relief drive led by Tapas Foundation was conducted on 21st and 22nd August 2021 in New Delhi. The drive focused on providing support to a community that was brutally affected by the pandemic and was unable to feed themselves due to loss of livelihood. Tapas aimed to


extend support to the community so that they are able sustain in these hard times.

A community of 100 families whose only source of income has been from working on creating mela pandals during Dussehra and Durga Puja in Delhi were out of work. These artisans who have made the festivals so much more beautiful for us in the past years were unable to feed themselves. The lockdown was harsh on them because several public events stood cancelled in previous years due to Covid-19. With this situation, these families were struggling to make their ends meet.

Dealing with unemployment and hunger, amidst a global health crisis has made their living conditions severe, and has an impact not just on their physical health, but also on their mental health. Hence, Tapas Foundation has organised several campaigns that aim to resolve their problems related to hunger and hygiene from its roots.

A ration distribution drive was organised by Tapas Foundation under the crowdfunded project ‘Hunger in India 2.0’ on 21st and 22nd of August, in Jhandewalan Basti, Delhi.

Tapas    distributed ration kits to over 105 families that would persist for the time period of over four months.

Every Hunger in India relief kit contained the following:

  • Wheat flour (30 kgs)
  • Rice (30 kgs)
  • 2 types of pulses (20 kgs)
  • Oil (2 litres)
  • Salt (2 packets)
  • Red chilli powder
  • Turmeric powder
  • Sugar (1 kg)
  • Drinking-Water (10 big bottle)
  • Detergent Powder and soap (10 packets)

Each kit would last upto 4 months and 105 families were provided with the same in the Jhandewalan Community in NewDelhi.

Before this, Tapas Foundation distributed ration kits to over 45 families of Jhandewalan basti in January 2021, under the project ‘Hunger in India’ which aimed to provide relief from hunger to the people of the Jhandewalan basti for over 3 months.

The campaign Hunger In India aimed to eradicate the problem of hunger and scarcity of food from the lives of people of Jhandewalan. Tapas foundation has always believed in working efficiently and effectively to create an impact.
