More about wheel well

For Impact – not for Profit.

OUR GOALS

  • We aim to make people aware of the critical issues.
  • We aim to vigorously promote educational initiatives.
  • We aim to strengthen legal protections as they pertain to Children’s Road Safety.

Our projects for children as pedestrians are all designed to have multiple benefits for children. Not just road safety, but safety in general, education, literacy as well as leadership skills. Children have a very specific profile in traffic and we must always keep that top most in mind when we are looking for solutions.

Activism is one of the vital pillars in our approach to road safety for children. We keep up the pressure towards changes in legislation, improving statistics and post crash care that will benefit our children.

All our activities are carried out with cast-iron integrity whilst maintaining complete transparency at all times.
