On 7th June 2016 USAID held its first national conference on ‘Co-security and crime prevention policy in the Kyrgyz Republic’. EASST’s partner ‘Road Safety’ was in attendance to present its newly developed curriculum on road safety for children.

Road Safety’s exhibit included copies of the curriculum and age-appropriate educational resources translated in Kyrgyz, Russian and English along with a report based on the pilot implementation of the curriculum across a number of local schools.

A photo slideshow told the story of the project’s development while youth road inspectors from schools No. 1 and 85 carried out demonstrations using the mobile auto-city (more here).

Road Safety Director, Chinara Kasmambetova presented on ‘Children’s Security on the Road’. As a result of her success, Chinara has also been commissioned as part of the Kyrgyz Republic’s third Road Safety Commission to conduct Road Safety assessments of all mid-level staff  within the Minitry of Internal Affairs (Traffic Police) whose work relates to road infrastructure and general security.

The conference was organised by USAID and GGPAS in partnership with the UN Department on drugs and crime, civil union ‘For reforms and results’, “For international tolerance” Fund,  Road Safety, City initiatives, Children rights supporters league, Insan, Bir duino Kyrgyzstan, and Saferworld.
