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.

Wo Saat Din

Menstrual hygiene management (MHM) is an essential aspect of hygiene for women and adolescent girls between menarche and menopause. Despite being an important issue concerning women and girls in the menstruating age group MHM is often overlooked in post-disaster responses. Further, there is limited evidence of menstrual hygiene management in humanitarian settings.

On 5th February 2021 , Menstrual Health and Awareness Day, Team Tapas made sure to fight back the stigma surrounding mensuration. Tapas went bold and our message was loud and clear – #PaapNahiPaakHai We took the streets in 4 cities – Delhi, Mumbai, Dehradun and Bhopal. 24 hours, 4 cities and 1000 free sanitary pads were distributed under the campaign “Woh saat din”.

In the city Mumbai, from school girls to women labours – we made sure to reach as many people and places as we could. Our initiative was met with big smiles and we believe that our team left a positive impact on menstrual health and hygiene.

In the second distribution drive we reached out to the city called the queen of hills and interacted with women workers, schoolgirls and made sure to leave our marks at public places. We are sure to have left an impact on menstrual health among the little queens of Dehradun.

In the third phase of the sanitary pad distribution drive drive of distribution Team Tapas covered the city of Bhopal at various locations – from residential colonies to construction sites. We made sure to reach out and talk about menstrual health and hygiene among women and young girls.

Menstrual Hygiene is vital to the empowerment and well-being of women and girls worldwide. It is about more than just access to sanitary pads and appropriate toilets – though those are important. It is also about ensuring women and girls live in an environment that values and supports their ability to manage their menstruation with dignity.
