Volunteers needed!

We have started with the following activities and would like to strengthen their respective teams.

1) Getting zebra stripes painted:  Our data shows that about a sixth of the road accident fatalities are pedestrians trying to cross a road.  Therefore we are trying to improve the pedestrian crossing facilities.  We have teams working with PMC ward offices, but most of them would be glad to have more volunteers.

Expected effort:  About one phone call a week, and an occasional visit to the ward office (typically once in two months).  If you can do that, please write to Jayant Joshi (jayant.joshi@savepunetraffic.org).

2) Distributing reflective tapes in schools:  Children returning from schools and classes in evenings can be vulnerable because traffic is high in evenings and visibility is low.  SPTM wants to distribute reflective tapes to as many children as possible - they can affix these tapes on their backpacks, water bottles, caps, ... whatever, so that they can be seen easily by drivers.

Expected effort:  If you know the principal of any school very well and can arrange distribution of these reflective tapes, please write to Archana Joshi (mm_joshi@hotmail.com).


Sponsors needed!

Some of the items in the table are ongoing activities, some are upcoming activities that are being planned and the rest are ideas waiting for funds.  This list is not final - more and more ideas may come up in future.
