Here at Coach and Bus Week, we share Transaid's belief that every driver should be able to leave for a day's work without the fear that they may not come home because of a lack of training, or dangerous vehicles and roads.
In sub-Saharan Africa, road deaths are the third biggest killer following HIV/AIDS and Malaria (Source: The World Bank). Drivers are at risk every time they sit behind the wheel. We want to help Transaid change this.
Transaid's driver training programmes make drivers more competent, vehicles safer, and reduce death and injury on the road. In 12 months alone, Transaid has trained over 7,800 professional drivers, including bus and coach drivers, in Zambia, Tanzania and Uganda.
We want to help Transaid continue this life saving work, but we need your support to do so! Please donate whatever you can.
