September 9, 2014


1,925 high-quality helmets were distributed to students, teachers, and staff at Trung Vuong Primary School in Hoan Kiem District of Hanoi in a helmet handover ceremony on Tuesday.

The donation is part of the American International Group (AIG), a multinational insurance corporation and the Asia Injury Prevention (AIP) Foundation’s partnership to support the road safety initiative, Helmets for Kids in Vietnam, in collaboration with the National Traffic Safety Committee, the Ministry of Education and Training, Hanoi Department of Education and Training, and Hanoi Traffic Safety Committee.

“The Helmets for Kids program is part of AIG’s global initiative to ‘Make the World a Safer Place’ and our long term commitment to working with communities across Vietnam in road safety.  AIG has served Vietnam for over 20 years and we believe that by working with the government, schools, and cities we can achieve fewer road crash fatalities and injuries across Vietnam. AIG is pleased to cooperate with the Protec Tropical Helmet factory and their employment of Persons with Disabilities because diversity and inclusion is one of AIG’s key principles.” said Ms. Susan E. Loftus, AIG Vietnam Chief Executive Officer and General Director.
