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.
Amend’s work in Tanzania was featured in this excellent radio piece from Public Radio International’s The World. We think the piece, which aired on public radio stations across America, provides one of the best primers on road safety in Africa we have ever heard.
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.
