According to the World Health Organization, globally, “children account for 30-40% of all road traffic deaths in low- and middle-income countries- and pedestrians (between the ages) of 5-14 years old are the most at risk”. Addressing the risk of death and accidents in road traffic, especially around schools is fundamental to achieving the UN SDG goals, specifically Goal 11. As the JSIF aims to make communities safer by increasing the perception of safety, it is critical that children and youth feel safe on their way to school. Additionally, as JSIF intends to uplift the community aesthetics, it is imperative that schools and school zones are visible and respected by all members of the community. This project intends to capitalize on the successes of the Safe Passage Project under the first ICDP project and aims to create a model of safe routes for students to traverse to school in all communities. The overall goal of this project is to impact national policy to formalize speed limits in school zones and to formally enact school zone laws. This project also aligns with the National Development Plan, Vision 2023 and the SDG 11, which speaks to the development of Sustainable Communities and Cities. Lastly, by investing in this project the JSIF aims to develop a sustainable model adapted to the Jamaican context that could be replicated island wide. All students deserve to feel safe and secure in school, at home and in their communities.
