1 The GRTI was the idea of Michael Bamberger (formerly World Bank, Social Development Department) and George Banjo which was implemented under the Rural Travel and Transport Program (RTTP) of the SSATP with participation of the Transport Desk of the UN Economic Commission for Africa under funding from the Development Grant Facility of the World Bank. The GRTI was administered by the regional NGO network MWENGO (Executive Secretary, Ezra Mbogori) with Petronella Maramba and Adeline Sibanda as the first and second Technical Advisers.
