Students Advocate for Road Safety

Georgia | Momavlis Taoba | 5 Feb 2016


Success
Students submitted a letter to Governor of the Samtredia Municipality requesting the support to solve the problem of road signs’ absence. Local Government, together with the support of Municipality’s Road Department helped to resolve a problem. A speed bump and a road sign “Children” were installed in front of the school. This improved road safety for students, teachers and community members.

Overview
