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 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.
Alliance Advocates Program has so far trained 70 Advocates trained from 49 countries, resulting in action plans that have led to national legislation change in Tunisia and the Philippines, safer school zones in seven countries, significant funding boosts from multilateral donors, improved media and social media presence, increased influence with national government stakeholders.

The Alliance Empowerment Program was initiated in response to a learning needs assessment conducted among Alliance members. Since its launch in 2015, the program has evolved and adapted based on regular evaluations.
