Following the successful selection of twelve program schools to receive quality helmets and helmet use education through the Safety Delivered program in Thailand, AIP Foundation conducted a week-long road show to carry out school-based educational activities for students and teachers throughout Bangkok.
From December 18-24, AIP Foundation traveled to several program schools to deliver messages on the importance of helmet use and carry out helmet wearing demonstrations, engaging over 1,100 students and teachers across Ta Klam School, Wat Bang Sakae Nai School, Wat Nimmanoradee School, and Nak Nawa U Tham School.
Program schools were selected based on several criteria, including the condition of the road environment surrounding the school, the economic need of the community, low helmet-wearing rates of students, and the level of commitment from school administrators to promote helmet use among students through the program.
Safety Delivered is supported by The UPS Foundation and implemented by AIP Foundation in Cambodia, India, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam. The program aims to reduce road crash injuries and fatalities among vulnerable motorcyclists by working with young drivers to improve their driving behaviors and by increasing child helmet use.
