Students from the University of Adelaide in Australia donated 35 children’s helmets to AIP Foundation after a visit to the Protec factory in Hanoi. During the tour, the students learned about the history and mission of AIP Foundation, as well as current road safety challenges in low- and middle-income countries. The students also observed how to construct a helmet and the process for testing helmet quality in the on-site lab.

Dinh Kim Phuong, the nonprofit’s National Program Manager for the country, thanked the University of Adelaide students for their donation, which she said will “help protect Vietnamese children and their future.” The visit to the Protec factory was organized by AIP Foundation and the Australian Embassy in Vietnam.

In 2001, AIP Foundation’s President and Founder, Greig Craft, founded Protec and began producing the world’s first “tropical” motorcycle helmet. Since its inception, the factory has produced nearly 6.5 million helmets.
