Launch of Alliance Empowerment Program

19 November 2015

The Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety has announced the launch of the “Alliance Empowerment Program” a capacity building program sponsored by FedEx. It aims to improve the ability of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working in road safety around the world to design and implement initiatives that significantly reduce the risk of injury and fatality on the world’s roads. 

The Alliance Empowerment Program will be administered by the Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety, a coalition organization representing more than 140 NGOs operating in road safety in over 70 countries. The program aims to serve all Alliance-member NGOs and will feature face-to-face training workshops conducted in key regions of the world, webinars, online tool-kits, and mentorship services for NGOs. Training content will focus on relevant road safety topics and will provide technical training relating to project management, implementation, and advocacy.

“NGOs have significant potential to reduce traffic-related injuries and fatalities and advocate for road safety by implementing community initiatives. We want to make sure that they have the necessary skills to meet challenges and are able to respond to the needs they see in their communities” said Lotte Brondum, Administrative Director of the Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety. “The Alliance Empowerment Program will provide this training to road safety NGOs around the world so that more lives can be saved and we can reach the targets included in the new Sustainable Development Goals.”

Currently, the Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety is conducting a needs assessment among member NGOs to gather information on area-specific weaknesses, to inform the exact content of the training program. Once implemented, the program will be systematically monitored and evaluated to determine its effectiveness in improving member NGO’s capacity to develop road safety initiatives that produce significant, measurable results.
