Road Safety Project in Indonesia
Road safety is an important social issue in Indonesia, where the number of traffic fatalities is now the highest in Southeast Asia. Drawing on Japan’s expertise in preventing traffic accidents, Sompo Japan Nipponkoa and PT. Asuransi Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Indonesia have teamed up with Save the Children Japan, international civil society specialized in child support, to launch a road safety project in Bandung City, West Java. This joint project aims to enhance a safer mind as well as safer environment related to road safety around the schools liaising with local administration. Over a four-year period, we have provided traffic safety education for teachers and students at 30 elementary and middle schools, improved transportation infrastructure near the schools, and appealed to regional and national governments. Over 20,000 people have participated in this project as of today.
