Royal Awards in Africa

11 July 2009

Opening the pan-African Make Roads Safe Conference in Dar es Salaam Tanzania on 8 July, HRH Prince Michael of Kent, Royal Patron of the Commission for Global Road Safety congratulated three winners of his International Road Safety Awards by saying: ‘ My Awards recognise innovation and reward success but most importantly they help to communicate these ideas to a wider audience, spreading knowledge and awareness of what works in road safety. I am therefore delighted that here today are three new winners of my awards; each very different but each an example of what can be done to make roads safer.’

Later that evening he presented his award to Chevron for its international commitment shown through its Arrive Alive Programme which has made significant strides in road safety in Guatemala, Nigeria, South Africa and Uganda .

He presented a second award to the Fleet Forum on its successful road safety programme targeting UN and vehicle fleets of the humanitarian organisations.

He was also delighted to be able to present a commendation certificate to Casey Marenge who founded the Chariots of Destiny organization and has achieved so much to raise awareness in Kenya and further across the world.
