Key partners are supporting the second Kenya Training of Facilitators

Last year, we run the first Kenya Training of Facilitators in Nairobi, Kenya with a group of talented youth leaders from around the country who went on to reach hundreds of young people in person and thousands of young people via the ripple effect. This year our key partners, Michelin, Tom Tom, UNEP, Share the Road, Kenya Red Cross, ASIRT Kenya and more local NGOs are supporting the second training of facilitators taking place next month (November 2013) at the United Nations Campus, Nairobi, Kenya.

We will also be working with a host of local NGOs on the ground in Kenya who will work with us to deliver a new cohort of facilitators who will, after the training, run their own workshops across Kenya. The training will run from 25th November 2013 - 6th December 2013  is being hosted at the United Nations Campus in Nairobi, Kenya (supported by the United Nations Evnironment Programme; Share the Road).

Floor Lieshout, Director of YOURS said, "Along side Safe Roads, Safe Vehicles and Post Crash Care, we need Safe Road Users. Youth play a fundamental role in creating these safe road users. Their participation must be built in to road safety intiatives. When youth are well informed, inspired, skilled and given a real chance to participate, they are very powerful allies to energize the `road safety revolution´ in a country as peer educators, advocates and innovators".

The YOURS Training of Facilitators takes place over a two week period and is an intensive training that prepares young people in understanding road safety theory and risk factors alongside practical facilitation skills. Week one focuses on road safety knowledge and skills to be an effective peer educator, week two offers in the field practical experience.
