A prestigious award for the Global Alliance of NGOs for Road SafetyDaniele D'Onofrio
(LONDON, UK) The Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety, where CITA is an active member, received the Prince Michael International Road Safety Award, one of the most prestigious in the global road safety world.
“We are extremely honored to receive this award and humbled by the recognition, which we believe also belongs to all our members who each day strive to make a difference and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals for Road Safety”, said Mrs. Brondum, Executive Director of the Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety.
At the cerimony, were rewarded the efforts through the Alliance Empowerment Program to increase the quality of member NGOs work and to strengthen their ability to plan, identify funding, implement, and evaluate relevant advocacy activities that lead to community mobilization, press attention, and legislative change.
The Empowerment Program, launched in 2016, is the Alliance’s flagship capacity building program. Funded and supported by FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), it is a multi-year program incorporating face-to-face training, webinars, and mentoring. It uses in-house expertise to enable stronger, more experienced members of the Alliance to share their skills and knowledge with others in the member community. Initial results from the program are documented in the Alliance’s action brief “Walking the Talk”.
This award and initial results from the program demonstrate that the Alliance is achieving its objectives and strengthening the road safety NGO community.
