Global Newsletter – APRIL 2023

Dear Friends and Supporters,


The past few weeks and months have been exciting, fast-paced, productive and above all collaborative. Since you last heard from us, we are sincerely proud to share that we have officially published our Impact Report 2022.


Despite challenges around the world, we have remained steadfast in our mission to promote equitable, safe, and sustainable mobility for all – directly impacting the lives of 9,025,536 vulnerable young people, parents, teachers, people living with disabilities, ethnic minorities, and more this past year.


At the heart of our work is not only the community we serve but also the community we operate within. Without our network of dedicated partners who share our vision of a world with safe mobility, we would not be able to achieve our goals. Nothing brought us more joy than to gather with our fellow colleagues, friends and partners at the 8th Global Meeting of NGOs for Road Safety in San Salvador.


During this action packed week under the theme of Rethinking road safety: mobility for people and planet, our team members joined the international community in raising their voices for safe and sustainable mobility. The 8th Global Meeting set pace for more action by authorities to reduce road deaths and injuries by 50% by 2030 through the launch of the Accountability Toolkit and demands in the San Salvador Declaration.


Ideas and activities for the 7th UN Global Road Safety Week (UNGRSW) were shared and discussed during the Symposium kicking off the planning for the upcoming UNGRSW 2023. This 7th edition focuses on sustainable transport, in particular the need to shift to walking, cycling and using public transport. Road safety is both a prerequisite for and an outcome of this shift.


In this spirit and advocating for urgent action, Manulife Cambodia and AIP Foundation joined hands with the National Road Safety Committee (NRSC) of Cambodia to work together in reducing road crashes and fatalities across the country launching the Road Safety Awareness Campaign with over 300 safety banners distributed in the Phnom Penh and provinces. 


In Thailand,  we were excited to announce the official launch of Phase III of the VIA Road Safety Education Programme (VIA Programme) supported by TotalEnergies Foundation and the Michelin Foundation and managed by the Global Road Safety Partnership. This year, the program will be implemented in Pathum Thani province. 


In Quang Ngai province Vietnam, the Safe Steps Kids Road Safety Day supported by Prudential Vietnam empowered more than 700 students to become safer road users.


Our legacy program, Safety Delivered, came to a close in Mandaluyong, the Philippines where approximately 2000 helmets were distributed as part of the final helmet handover ceremony. The program planted the seeds to raise road safety awareness among many school communities. 


While one program comes to an end, we know that our impact is long-lasting and that with partners, supporters and friends like you supporting us, we remain hopeful for the future. It is thanks to you that underrepresented and vulnerable communities are now being seen, heard, prioritized and served. 


Please read on.
