We will distribute one billion reflecting beads for free in developing countries to children and youth. We have started in Malawi, where about twenty road traffic collisions occur every day in, two of which are fatal and two of which cause serious injuries.

GOAL

Reducing the number of dead and injured children in traffic by more than 20% each year, in every country where Kids Non-Profit Organization operates.

PURPOSE

Kids Non-Profit Organization is dedicated to promoting a simple, low-cost road safety programs and reducing children's fatalities and injuries from nighttime road accidents in developing countries. Kids Non-Profit Organization distribute reflective beads and provide road safety education to underprivileged children. The purpose is that each child will make bracelets, decoration and handicrafts with the reflecting beads for themselves and family members. If children wear reflective beads in the evening, they will be seen at a five time’s longer distance than without, giving drivers crucial time to stop or swerve around.
