  • Society of Road Safety Ambassadors (SORSA) is a unique, national non-profit mak-

    ing and non-governmental youth-led organization that acts to keep young people safe

    on Botswanas roads. It comprises of active youths who are cognizant of the profound

    responsibility to reduce road crashes and who appreciates the moral and patriotic
