From 12-16 March 2018, Nairobi (Kenya) hosted the first Alliance Advocates regional programme for the African region. The event was mainly a training dedicated to more than 20 NGO leaders from across Africa and the intent was to train them in advocacy with a particular focus on safe school zones across the region.
Having some of the highest rates of road crashes across the world, the African region sees a large proportion of the world's road deaths. Considering this condition, the participants were trained on a list of topics including the purpose of advocacy in road safety, understanding data gathering in the field, strategic planning for advocacy activities, talking with decision makers and getting your message across (road safety messaging).
