Road Safety: Institution Building
It is important to build institutions and develop capacities at community level for undertaking road safety education at large scale and to make it sustainable. It has been experienced in the country as well as abroad that NGOs who live close to the community and work at grass root level can play major role in providing road safety awareness and services to the community. It is therefore, necessary to identify local NGOs and community leaders and impart training to them on road safety.
BRAC identified, selected, trained, and provided resources to local NGOs to develop their capacity and sustain road safety initiatives. These are placed at grass root levels to help BRAC in mobilizing the community for implementation of the road safety campaign.
