The Movement Continues

Change Before Climate Change is an initiative focused on raising awareness about the urgent need to address climate change and take action to reduce our carbon footprint.
As part of this initiative, Roopesh Rai, founder of Bakri Chhap is embarking on a Zero Carbon Footprint Pedal Yatra, traveling across the country on a bicycle to spread the message about the importance of addressing climate change.

Championing Environmental Cause and Driving Action

At a time, when the heroes who put food on our plates, sleep hungry, we are not prospering. 

At Tathagata Foundation, with a strong socio-economic vision, we intend to create India’s next growth story straight from its villages. This pedal yatra is a way to strengthen our deep-rooted bond with rural India. 

Our initiatives are focussed on solving such problems that impact rural India. We have enabled the reverse migration of Uttarakhand natives and the revival of ghost villages. It’s not a sprint, it’s a marathon.
