GRSP ZA together with Shell South Africa (Pty) Ltd and key stakeholders, are currently implementing the 'Safe to School - Safe to Home' (S2H – S2S) project in Gauteng.

The S2H S2S project has been developed by GRSP International as a comprehensive, community-based road safety education programme encouraging all sectors to work together towards the protection of children on our roads. Overseen by the local lead authority (PTSC), the programme engages with enforcement, education and engineering sectors, as well as with children, parents and the broader school community.

The project in Gauteng is currently in the second phase of infrastructure development within schools i.e. erecting formal drop off and pick up/ waiting areas (putting up shelter and benches), developing speed humps, the increase of traffic lights on main roads, along with other road safety interventions done near schools on high risk motor vehicle collision spots. Other interventions include scholar patrol projects, a fulltime EPDP traffic officer station on Khumalo Road/ main road which now has close relations with the schools.

The key stakeholders involved with the project in Gauteng are, the provincial Department of Education, the Department of Community Safety, EMDP and theEkhuruleni Municipality. Through this partnership the success of the project is premised on the stakeholders working together to achieve the project goals.
