#SaveKidsLives Campaign

'Save Kids Lives' is a campaign started in support with the Third United Nation's Road Safety Week after observing that, EVERYDAY more than 500 children lose their lives in traffic crashes globally & THOUSANDS are injured. This campaign is a traffic awareness & a road safety campaign which has been carried out globally. In this campaign, the volunteers had to collect signatures from a number of children as well as the adults, after reading the declaration to show support for this venture. By signing the declaration, they are helping to:
  •  call for action to stop the growing number of road deaths worldwide.
  •  ask decision makers to save kids’ lives by putting road safety in place.
  •  support the movement for road safety led by children around the world.

 Mr.Aakash Shah being the Advocate for MY WORLD 2015 UN survey, started with this campaign in India as a UN representative. APD (Action For Pune Development) was a part of this campaign. 40 of our members went down on the streets, to various schools, to societies & to public places to get this declaration signed from a number of people. We were successful in collecting around 24,000 signatures till date & we're aspiring to get a lot more signatures in the next few days. Our members told each and every person who signed this declaration, the importance of road safety, how the children are affected in a large number & the cons of not following these basic traffic rules.
 This campaign helped us realize the importance of road safety too with the others. Hence we as the Youth, abide to follow each and every traffic rule & try to make others follow them too hereafter. Safety starts with "S" but begins with "YOU" :)
