Around 2PM, on the 1st October 2018, HPR volunteers have had a Campaign at Groupe Scolaire Ste Famille.
This is via the Road safety and First Aid Project through which we are in partnership IMCC FAIR.
During this Campaign, around six hundred and ten students including their teachers were present where HPR volunteers and student from health club ( The ones we used to train in previous teaching sessions) raised awareness about road safety and First Aid.
In his speech, Representative of health club at Ste Famille Teacher Emmanuel thanked HPR for the great impact they made on the future of young people. He also state that “about 71 percent of the total road accidents registered of the last year were either caused or involve motorcycles, pedestrians and bicycles and Most of these road accidents are avoidable if traffic rules are strictly adhered to by all road users. We are lucky because Health People Rwanda is conducting this important teaching sessions to our students and they have learnt a lot of skills that will be useful not only for Rwandan society but also for our future generations”
Apart from campaign HPR volunteers has held also another teaching session at Ste Ignatius on 5th October 2018 where a student learn a lot about road safety behavior and different first aid skills.
HPR is still raise road safety awareness campaigns and teaching sessions especially in schools where students were sensitized on safe road usage.
