THE ROAD SAFETY AWARENESS PROGRAM FOR SCHOOL CHILDREN - SAFETY CUBE DONATION PROGRAM

In February, we implemented ‘on the road to safety program’, a road safety program for school children aimed at primary school children safety on the road. The implementation was made to four primary schools in all the 3 regions in the country: St Kizito, Limbe girls, Lilongwe demonstration and St Peter respectively.

The program is a continuation of the safety campaign that Total Malawi launched in April 2014 and it is the Total Group’s safety awareness campaign initiative.

This year’s program has rolled out with nine safety cubes distributed across the country, this includes scholar patrol kits and repainting of pedestrian crossings. These safety cubes were designed to make road safety learning a fun experience for children, it is structured around a fun educational tool, the cube, which has become its emblem and can easily be adapted to different local contexts. The cubes contain: teaching kits for simulative, interactive and practical lessons containing road tracks, signs, lesson guides, work books, safety exercise books and certificates to be issued to students at the end of the training.

Before the implementation of the campaign in the schools, pupils went through road safety lessons and about 8000 pupils were reached out. The launch was done in collaboration with Road Safety Authority, Educational authorities, local transporter and Traffic Police who drilled the pupils and their teachers on how to cross the road with the help of scholar patrol kits.

The road safety program in schools goes beyond simply distributing teaching materials, but by putting together a network of excellence made up of motivated schools and competent partners that work alongside Total Malawi, we foster commitment from other players to support road safety.
