Safetipin and the students of Institute of Home Economics at the University of Delhi undertook a
project to conduct safety audits in the college’s neighbourhood. The students of the Department of
Human Development began the semester long initiative by first building a perspective on Gender
and Mobility in the ambit of social justice. The students then had a training session on how to
conduct safety audits using the Safetipin App.
The students were then asked to create routes around their college where safety audits would be
conducted. Several safety audit walks were conducted in the Hauz Khas, Green Park, Siri Fort, IIT
Delhi area. The findings from the audits were then compiled into a report using the analytics engine
of Safetipin. The report was released on the 16th of April 2015 by Dr. Kalpana Viswanath the Co-
founder of Safetipin and Satinder Singh the SHO of Hauz Khas Police Station in the presence of the
Principal, faculty and students of IHE.
The report documents the condition of the infrastructure around the college in detail and makes
several recommendations on how the area can be made safer for students and the larger
community. The exercise of closely inspecting their college campus and their city has allowed the
students to build valuable perspective on gender, mobility and urban planning. The Safetipin team is
excited to work with other colleges and universities to carry out similar programs.
