Safe School Infrastructure and 30km/h School Zone Advocacy

Project Budget: USD 230,000

Dates: January 2017 to December 2020

Funding Partner: FedEx

 

 

 

Over a three-year period, Amend and FedEx have partnered to implement Amend’s lifesaving School Area Road Safety Assessments and Improvements (SARSAI) program around schools and to advocate for safe 30 km/h school zones in Botswana, Malawi, Namibia, and Zambia.

 

High risk schools in Gaborone, Botswana; Lilongwe, Malawi; Windhoek, Namibia; and Lusaka, Zambia received SARSAI, and ribbon-cutting events welcomed attendees such as the first lady of Botswana and the regional governor in Namibia.

 

The project produced two significant advocacy breakthroughs: regulation changes in Windhoek, Namibia, and Lusaka, Zambia, mandating that all school zones in the cities set a maximum speed limit of 30 km/h. Events were held to celebrate these important regulation changes.
