Tsogo Road Safety Programme is a 4-month intervention by Abuti Rams Foundation to address the minimal road safety knowledge and explore the best practices amongst youth which increases their vulnerability towards road fatalities but also expose them to the opportunities within the road transport sector.

The programme from its inception was informed by the Decade of Action 2030 and designed in-line with the five pillars of road safety governing the goals thereof.


Principal to the piloting of Tsogo was the mass public awareness and participation within road safety and transport sector. This was done in a form of capacity building workshops within 4 provinces in South African rural and township communities.

Although the increasing numbers of deaths due to crashes of young people, however there are various interventions around road safety in South Africa that have been implemented by both public and private sector to mitigate the epidemic.


  • Objective #1: Increase awareness on road safety and road transport sector amongst the youth
  • Objective #2: Conscientise and expose out-of-school youth to internship and graduate opportunities within the road transport sector
  • Objective #3: Capacitate SMMEs with relevant skills within the road transport sector to participate meaningfully in the local economic growth.

“Promoting road safety and exposing job and business opportunities for the youth within the Transport Sector in Southern Africa.”


Since inception (2018), Tsogo Road Safety Programme has trained over 2 500 young people on road safety in 7 provinces (North West, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, Northern Cape, Free State, Kwa-Zulu Natal, and Gauteng) with support from road safety organisations such as Road Traffic Infringement Agency (RTIA), Transport Education Training Authority (TETA), Road Accident Fund (RAF) and other various provincial governments and local municipalities.
