Maso Ponseponse or “Eyes Everywhere” in English is a sensitization initiative in Malawi, encouraging individuals to be responsible road users and report road crashes. It encourages them to observe road signs, regulations, distractions, and encourage others to support government efforts.
The Walk to the City Campaign in Malawi encourages people to walk and cycle to work, schools, and homes to raise road safety awareness and reduce crashes. It reminds pedestrians and cyclists of their duty to follow traffic rules, encourages motorists to respect pedestrians and cyclists, and urges authorities to revisit mobility infrastructure.
ROSAF advocates for Malawi's government to reduce mandatory speed limit to 30km/hr, targeting school zones and weekly markets. Research shows pedestrians have 90% chance of survival at 30km/h or below.
ROSAF's Road Shows campaign aims to raise awareness and encourage safer road use among road users. It involves sensitization, adherence to rules, primary safety education, and various activities. Over 1,300 Malawians die from road crashes annually, with 93% occurring in low- and middle-income countries.
