It is with great pride today that GRSP and Fondation Botnar officially launch the Botnar Child Road Safety Challenge; a new, global road safety grants initiative which will be managed by GRSP.The Challenge is timely, it seeks to build on growing global recognition of population shifts to urban areas and the impact of urbanization on public health. The Challenge also sees cities – particularly small and mid-sized cities – as great potential agents of change and incubators for innovation.

The Challenge will fund projects which address locally relevant, child-focussed road safety issues with practical, innovative and evidence-based interventions. Applications for funding will be welcomed from multi-sectoral consortiums representing partners from government, civil society and the private sector to address road safety problems which impact children in cities with populations between 200,000 and 1 million inhabitants in six countries: India, Mexico, Romania, South Africa, Tunisia and Vietnam.

Successful applications will be eligible for funding of a maximum amount of 400,000 Swiss Francs (CHF) for two-year projects. There will also be an opportunity for three additional years of funding for a total of up to 1,000,000 CHF over 5 years.
