Total partners FRSC on safety of children
Total Nigeria Plc has entered into partnership with Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) of Nigeria and local state traffic authorities on the implementation of Road Safety Cubes for primary school children in the country.
The campaign started with the donation of 13 safety cubes for children in Saint Georges Primary Schools, Falomo in Ikoyi, Lagos. So far, the Road safety cube training has covered 1,018 pupils in Kaduna. Also, on February 14, 2017, the Kano sector command of the FRSC distributed five safety cubes to five schools.
According to the Managing Director, Jean-Philippe Torres, “The Road Safety Cubes Campaign is aimed at protecting Nigerian children between the ages of age 6 to 12, from road accidents by educating them on road signs and proper behavior on the road while going to school.
“We are fully committed to reducing road accidents and its associated risks as our major channel of petroleum products distribution is via road transportation. This is because, at Total, safety comes first and is fundamental in our core values.”
He explained that these safety cubes are designed to make the learning of safe road behavior a fun experience for children. They contain teaching kits for simulated, interactive and practical lessons, which include road tracks, road signs, lesson guides, workbooks, safety exercise books, and certificates to be issued to students at the end of their training.
This campaign that commenced in 2013 as one of Total Group’s corporate social responsibility strategy, has been implemented in Lagos, Port – Harcourt, and recently in Kaduna and Kano states.
