Fondation Botnar together with the Global Road Safety Partnership is seeking proposals from consortiums representing partners from government, civil society and the private sector for its Botnar Child Road Safety Challenge to build on growing global recognition of population shifts to urban areas and the impact of urbanization on public health.

Focus Issues:

  • Reducing speeding
  • Enforcing evidence-based road traffic laws
  • Providing leadership on road safety
  • Improving and managing post-crash care
  • Improving infrastructure design
  • Establishing vehicle safety standards


  • Consortium proposals can be submitted for a maximum amount of 400,000 Swiss francs (CHF) for a two-year project.
  • Successful consortium projects will have the opportunity for 3 additional years of funded reinvestment for a total investment of 5 years and up to 1,000,000 CHF.


Multi-sectoral consortiums representing one local government agency and at least one civil society organization can submit Challenge proposals within the following parameters:

  • Governmental organizations must have relevant authority over road safety policy and/ or its implementation. Military agencies are not eligible to apply.
  • Non-governmental organizations (including but not limited to civil society organizations and educational institutions) should be able to demonstrate experience in implementing road safety, public health, children’s rights or other relevant issue area projects.


  • Consortium proposals should include at least one private sector partner which can create shared value by leveraging the organization’s capacity and competency to contribute to the proposal; however, funding will not be made available to the private sector consortium partner.
  • Government partner(s) should not seek funds to duplicate or outsource work the organization is tasked with or has the capacity and resources to complete. The Challenge funds are to address the resources and competencies the organization lacks and are essential to addressing the proposal problem.
