New Dehli, India – December 15, 2021
Earlier this year, the International Road Federation (IRF) – India Chapter launched a webinar series as part of its fundamental mission on road safety. AIP Foundation National Program Director, Mrs. Quy Linh Nguyen, was honored to present at the 12th Webinar on the SAFE STEPS KIDS – Road Safety (SSK-RS) program in Vietnam as part of the session on sustainable transport and road safety.
Prudential Vietnam and AIP Foundation launched the SSK-RS program in Vietnam for the first time in 2020. The objective of the program is to increase traffic road safety knowledge and skills among primary school students to better protect them from road crashes as well as raise safety awareness nationwide via communication campaigns.
Joining in the efforts of the international community in preventing at least 50% of road traffic deaths and injuries by 2030 as part of the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030, the IRF webinar series aims to bring together stakeholders and spread awareness on road safety issues. The first webinar in the series was launched during India’s Annual Road Safety Month in February 2021. The 2021 webinar series is supported by the FIA, the Prince Michael International Road Safety Award, iRAP and IndiaRAP.
The SSK-RS program is part of the SAFE STEPS KIDS program, developed by the Prudence Foundation, in partnership with Cartoon Network and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). The program aims to equip millions of children across Asia with actionable information designed to save lives in the event of emergencies or disaster situations. To date, the program has been deployed across Asia, in Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore.
