The Global Shapers Community Ulaanbaatar Hub is proud to announce that it has become an official partner organization of Asian Development Bank in Mongolia – the first non-profit youth organization to partner with the international bank. This collaboration will focus on successful implementation of #UBeSafe road safety awareness campaign, initiated by the Global Shapers Ulaanbaatar Hub in partnership with the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Road and Transportation and the Traffic Police of Mongolia.
Our community is excited to work closely together with ADB on bringing this critical issue into the limelight. In 2014 there were 31,585 traffic-related accidents recorded in Mongolia - nearly double from the previous year! 503 deaths occured on the road in the same year. It is our duty as citizens of Mongolia to adhere to safe conduct on the roads! Partnership with ADB is an important milestone for the #UBeSafe (You be safe) year-long campaign, which strives to utlize mass media in promotion of road safety.
This partnership with ADB is also a milestone for the Global Shapers Community and its religious commitment to shaping the world for better, starting with the local community. We, Global Shapers Ulaanbaatar Hub, thank our partner ADB for their trust and contribution.
Look out for our PSA commercials for the #UBeSafe campaign!
