However, more people began to reach out to her from other African countries like Sierra Leon, Namibia, South Sudan, Botswana and Zambia about bringing the child safety and school safety message to their countries. Therefore, she decided to create a tool that can help her share her message of accident prevention through safety education in  an accessible and cost effective format.

The goal is to reach a diverse number of people with practical safety knowledge that can be used in personal lives and in teaching others.
