Safe and Healthy Journeys to School in Africa

Project Budget: EUR 400,000

Dates: January 2020 to December 2021

Funding Partner: FIA Foundation

 

 

 

In 2020, Amend and the FIA Foundation continued our partnership of more than a decade with a project involving the following:

 

  • An Amend School Area Road Safety Assessments and Improvements (SARSAI) implementation at Oblogo Cluster of schools in Accra, Ghana where several children have been killed and many injured in the last two years. We held a ribbon-cutting event at the school in March 2020 that was attended by Zoleka Mandela and other luminaries.
  • A SARSAI implementation at a school in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, where children are at high risk of road traffic injury. The school has many disabled children, and there will be a special focus on accessibility for them. The ribbon-cutting event was held in November 2020.
  • Testing of innovative infrastructure solutions tailored for the African context, including different types of road marking paints and road construction materials.
  • Consulting for the World Bank on projects such as the Dar es Salaam Development Project to ensure that the lifesaving infrastructure measures contained in SARSAI are incorporated in World Bank-financed roads projects.
