Handicap International and PSA Foundation join hands
For the Road Prevention Project
Handicap International and PSA Foundation sign a partnership for the Road Prevention Project "Together for Safer Roads in the State of Tamil Nadu, India".
"We are very proud to enter into this partnership with Handicap International in India in a new territory where Groupe PSA and Citroën brand are based. The particularity of this programme lies in its objective: through awareness-raising among children in pilot schools and their parents, teacher training and the establishment of "safety school zones", to transmit best practices in road safety so that these proven practices can then be disseminated by institutional actors throughout the territory of Chennai and Tamil Nadu." says Karine Hillaireau, General Delegate of PSA Foundation.
Xavier du Crest, Director of Handicap International France, says: "With our local partner ATSWA Trust, we not only want to raise awareness among young people but also promote good road safety practices through this project with institutions, as we have been doing for more than 15 years in Africa, Asia and South America. For Handicap International, such actions are essential, as road accidents are one of the main causes of disability in the world. Every year, more than 50 million people are injured in road accidents."
Citroën Brand and PCA Motors in India are delighted with this partnership. "This project is very important for India, demonstrating that we are committed to the safety and well-being of the Indian people. I am personally involved in this project to support this cause," says Augustine Justin, PCA Motors Ltd Senior Director HR at Groupe PSA and project sponsor.
