Over 1.25 million people die because of road accidents in spite of several educational and awareness campaigns.
In Africa, 85000 children die or injure themselves on the road every year.
L’association Amis de la Route (Friends of the Road), launched ‘Road Safety School Sikasso, in the south of Mali in Africa. The aim is to train 1000 students on the basics of road safety. The Association is facing several challenges.
“We have a road safety project that we would like to implement in schools but we lack pedagogical tools.” Sikana partnered with the Association to spread awareness on road safety across several schools in Mali.
The students and the teachers were extremely interested and motivated. They appreciated the quality of the educational videos and wish that they are screened regularly.
