Alliance Empowerment Program

The Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety's Alliance Empowerment Program is a capacity building initiative incorporating face-to-face and online training, mentoring, and small grant schemes. It aims to improve the ability of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working in road safety around the world to design and implement initiatives that significantly reduce the risk of injury and fatality on the world’s roads. 

The Program is based on the findings of a learning needs assessment of Alliance members in 2015 and is built to address the needs highlighted.

The Alliance Empowerment Program uses in-house resources and partners with global road safety experts, to build our Alliance Members’ skills. Members learn to undertake evidence-based activities that have been identified by the global road safety community as critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goal target by 2020. The Alliance Empowerment Program is informed by our recent learning needs assessment.
