In an editorial in The Guardian, Amend’s Africa Director makes the point that “while safety is discussed in the conference rooms of five-star hotels, out on Dar es Salaam’s roads people die every day” and that development in Tanzania and the rest of Africa must not come at the expense of the most vulnerable road users.
The excellent Ugandan photographer Edward Echwalu (you can find Edward’s web page here) visited Dar es Salaam to photograph Amend’s work in action.

This piece on Amend has aired on Current TV many times. We can always tell when it is on the air – a flood of emails from folks offering to volunteer their time to help out always come in all at once.
