210 university students to become road safety ambassadors for their peers

December 21, 2017

Students participate in a training exercise at a capacity-building workshop as part of Safety Delivered.

As part of the Safety Delivered program supported by The UPS Foundation, AIP Foundation organized training workshops for 210 road safety ambassadors from seven universities in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. The capacity-building workshop will equip the university students with the knowledge and skills to promote safe driving behaviors among their peers through workshops, word-of-mouth, clubs, and events.

Following a series of focus group discussions with university students from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, AIP Foundation developed a motorcycle safety education toolkit in partnership with the National Traffic Safety Committee and the Ministry of Education and Training. The training topics focus on risky behaviors among youth in Vietnam, including not wearing a helmet, not checking blind spots, speeding, overtaking, and distracted driving. AIP Foundation will encourage the use of diverse media as students design their own road safety initiatives.
