Why support the appeal?
The Sustainable Development Goals provide a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. An estimated 1.35 million people die each year as a result of road traffic crashes, and a disproportionate burden is felt in low- and middle-income countries, which account for 60 percent of the world’s vehicles, but experience 93 percent of global fatalities on roads. As part of the goals, the United Nations has set an ambitious target to halve the number of global deaths and injuries from road crashes by 2030.
Transaid is focused on achieving the target and improving road safety through their professional driver training programmes across sub-Saharan Africa. In the last year, they’ve trained almost 7,000 drivers and 51 trainers at Transaid-assisted training centres in Zambia, Tanzania, Uganda, Ghana, and Mozambique.
Their National Helmet Wearing Coalition in Kenya entered into phase two, and continues to promote collective action to improve motorcycle safety.
