Efficient transport is a vital component of economic development, globally and nationally. Transport availability affects global development patterns and can be a boost or a barrier to economic growth within individual nations.
In some communities in our nation and developing countries, lack of access to transportation is a major barrier to living, learning and working.
Barriers to transportation can reveal the extent to which poor people have problems that either singly or in combination interfere with participating in training programs, complying with new rules, and, ultimately, getting jobs, keeping jobs, and increasing wages. Many poor people, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, may also simultaneously face several barriers to social services including lack of transportation due to affordability, and spatial mismatch.
In many developing countries, roads and highways are the dominant mode of transport. Road-based transport typically accounts for more than 80% of the distance traveled by individuals and more than 50% of the distance traveled by goods. Consequently, roads and highways form a crucial backbone to any economy by seamlessly linking up people and goods to their respective schools, clinics, hospitals and markets, which in turn improves economic efficiency and reduces poverty.
Global Aid Direct believes that access to affordable transportation for low-income workers, elderly residents, and children makes the trip to work, school, and medical appointments possible. It fosters self-sustainability, promotes independence, and permits spending on other household essentials.
Based on these transportation challenges faced by some of our local communities and developing countries, sustainable solutions are needed. Donating a car to Global Aid Direct to help meet the needs of those most in need is one of the solutions.
