The partnership between Radios Fadeco in Karagwe / Tanzania and Tonkuhle in Hildesheim has done a lot in the last four years: above all, many thousands of new trees have been planted in the deforested region of the country. Last year, a new action came along: Fadeco boss Joseph Sekiku took several hundred children’s safety vests as a donation of the ZAH, and thus launched a transport initiative, which in recent months, the number of fatal accidents fell sharply.
This initiative with the ZAH letters “Zuia Ajali Hapa” or “Avoid accidents now” has caused a stir nationwide and is now being copied as a prime example in other regions of Tanzania. The core problem, however, remains: lack of funds for good traffic education.
Over 600 new vests and road signs specially made by the city of Hildesheim bearing the imprint “Verkehrshelfer” – an active sign of the solidarity of Karagwe and Hildesheim have been flown to Tanzania and have helped Cut the rate of accidents especially in the region of Kagera. Tonkuhle broadcaster and “Hildesheim Forest for Tanzania” project leader Thomas Sklorz is our frequent visitor and we are proud to wouk with him.
“Traffic education is something new there: The initiative has already trained school leavers to significantly reduce the number of accidents and save lives,” says Andreas Kreichelt (Managing Director Radio Tonkuhle) of the lasting significance of the campaign. This includes ZAH Managing Director Stefan Grampe and Dr. Ing. Kay Brummer (City of Hildesheim, Department of Urban Development, Building, Environment and Transport) is convinced: “This is a great project!”, Both explained as part of the transfer of the West and signs at Radio Tonkuhle.
Zuia Ajali Hapa (Stop Accident Here), is among the Road Safety Campaigns, which We have initiated and actively participated in at the day of Road Safety Ambassadors in Dodoma. The Deputy Minister of Defense Mr Hamad Masauni was the guest of honour, at the Uwanja wa Mashujaa grounds in Dodoma. Attended by many other government and non-government officials, FADECO Community Radio, Radio Kwizera, Radio Vision, Radio Karagwe and Radio Vision jointly participated as the major media companies in Kagera Region.
