International development charity Transaid is celebrating a decade of work in Africa and throughout the developing world with its 10th Anniversary Royal Gala Ball on 9th October 2008.
The event will be hosted by the charity’s patron, HRH The Princess Royal at the Imperial War Museum in London and be attended by 300 members from the UK and European transport and logistics industry.
The evening will also mark the launch of the Professional Driver Training Institute Project in Zambia.
Anyone interested in attending the event should contact the Transaid marketing team on 020 7387 8136 or visit www.transaid.org.
Transaid is dedicated to improving transport and increasing access to basic services in Africa and the developing world. The charity works with the UK transport and logistics industry to build local skills and knowledge to make transport safer, cheaper and more effective.
Transport access and general road safety is becoming increasingly important in the developing world, particularly since gaining more recognition after the 2004 World Health Organisation’s study that road-related deaths are the third highest killer in Africa, just after HIV/AIDS and malaria.
