We are proud to announce the launch of the Youth and Road Safety Action Kit in 3 additional languages; Portuguese, Persian and Spanish! These translations were offered by organizations on the ground in Iran and Spain who saw an immediate usage of the Kit in the translated languages. In Spain, the MAPFRE Foundation worked with us to translate the Kit into Spanish and Portuguese. In Iran, TACI translated the Kit into Farsi (Persian).
Our Action Kit is the backbone of the work we do to empower young people in road safety. All around the world, youth who have been affected by road traffic crashes or want to take real action have picked up the Action Kit as an effective starting point. Our groundbreaking workshops were built from the concepts in the Action Kit and is given out to every youth that experiences a workshop.
Youth in Belize participate in a YOURS road safety workshop.
There are hundreds of reports out there that offer an insight into road safety, many of them 1000 pages long and scattered over different risk factors, regions and themes. For a young person wanting to learn about road safety, tackling all these reports would be a daunting task! That's why we have done it for them. We condensed reams of information into easy, bitesized and youth-friendly chunks to make it easy for young people to grasp the global road safety crisis facing young people, why youth are at particular risk, the key risk factors and how they can get started.
The Action Kit has been written by and for young people, reviewed by experts and endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
MAPFRE Foundation in Spain, joined us to translate the Youth and Road Safety Action Kit into Spanish and Portuguese. In Iran, TACI joined us to translate the Youth and Road Safety Action Kit into Farsi (Persian) and over 3000 kits were printed in Iran for young people to take road safety action now.
