Recently, we announced the launch of our Youth and Road Safety Action Kit in Farsi (Persian) translated by our friends at TAC Iran. The Kit, part of our award winning Capacity Development Programme introduces young people to the global road safety crisis facing their generation as well as actionable steps that they can take. The Kit was translated into Farsi in Iran to bring much needed attention to youth and road safety issues in the country. The Farsi version of the Kit has been receiving massive attention all across the country.
