In My Own Words - Tawia Addo-Ashong on Road Safety

January 22, 2014

Everyone has a story to tell. That’s the idea behind the new “In My Own Words” initiative, which gives World Bank staff an opportunity to record short podcasts detailing personal stories of how their work has made a difference and what motivates them. Tawia Addo-Ashong, Program Coordinator for the Global Road Safety Facility (GRSF), was among the first staff to take part in the project. In the podcast below, Tawia talks about her close and personal experience with treacherous roads in Ghana, and explains why she regards road safety as a key development priority.
