According to data reported by the Moroccan Comité national de prévention des accidents de la circulation (CNPAC), young people below the age of 14 represent 15% of all the deaths on Moroccan roads and are most of the time pedestrians. Many of them young kids going or coming back from school.
Against this background, our Lead Partner International Road Federation (IRF Geneva) and Mobilité Club Maroc (MCM) have joined hands and initiated the project “Safe Roads, Safe Kids!” thanks also to the support of the FIA Road Safety Grant Programme.
Safe Roads, Safe Kids! aims at building an evidence-based case that can be replicated in the rest of Morocco and hopefully exported also to other francophone countries. A workshop convening the different partners to the project was organised in Casablanca on 5-7 September 2018. Supported by the FIA Foundation, the workshop offered to the participants the opportunity to familiarise both with the methodology developed and used by AMEND around schools in Africa and also the SR4S app. Participants to the workshop had a chance to put in practice these methodologies by performing the assessment of a school in an underprivileged area of Casablanca.
